Congratulations on receiving your new Tea Elephant. I hope he is settling in well. There is nothing quite as exciting as sharing your tea with good friends and a Purple Elephant.
There are a few things to be aware of in regards to your new tea elephant. First off, your tea elephant has neither gender nor name. Unlike regular elephants, Purple Tea Elephants are born hermaphrodites and only developed a gender when their owner names them. Take care in deciding a name, your Tea Elephant will develop a personality based on your choice.
Secondly, please be careful what you feed your Tea Elephant. Tea Elephants are known to get into all sorts of mischief and have been observed eating jube jubes. If this occurs, the Tea Elephant may become hyperactive and hide from you. Look for your Tea Elephant on the ceiling or in a chemistry class, they are among the most favourite hiding places for Tea Elephants, especially purple ones.
One last thing, if your Tea Elephant gets him or her self dirty, please, please, please, under any circumstances, DO NOT PUT YOUR TEA ELEPHANT IN THE WASHING MACHINE! Tea Elephants are made of 100% wool from Peru and will either shrink into a minnie elephant or disintegrate all together. Either way, your Tea Elephant will wreck havoc on your washing machine in retribution for being destroyed. The best way to clean a naughty Tea Elephant is to hand wash in cold water with mild soap. Do not aggravate or wring the wool, this too will cause your elephant damage.
Please enjoy your elephant with caution; Tea Elephants like to have fun and often don’t know their own strength. A well trained Tea Elephant will bring years of enjoyment and happiness to you.
