Royal Petites Animals

Like most elephants Emilie is a social sort; she craves companionship and never fails to entertain with stories of her adventures in her homeland of Botswana. Shes a thoughtful girl, so you can rest assured shell never forget your birthday or anniversary—keeping track of those types of things is important to her. Elephants are a close-knit bunch and Emilie is no exception; youll find she’s quite generous with hugs and handholding.
