So, Lulo is sort of into Christmas this year and along with the story of Mary, Jofef and Baby Jesus he knows that he is getting some presents.

Now, I asked him what he wants and he said: "An Elephant."
What else do you want? An Elephant Tromba. (Tromba is the Portuguese word for "trunk". Two Portuguese nannies and a absentee the math.)

Anyhow, he wants this because Murray on Sesame Street spent a whole episode wearing an elephant tromba the other day. And Murray's sort of appeared to be made of a rubber band and a vacuum tube. Um, this is all I can find?

If 3 people tell me this is not phallic or frightening, then I will buy it. Speak now before the shipping charges kill me.

  1. This is not phallic.. i think he is just trying to mimc what he sees.. anyway you can make one at home... take a paper towel tube and paint it grey. Then punch to hole near one end to tie a string so that you can have it wrap around Lulo's head.

    It is make believe :)
