"Overnighted this little cutie for a friend's engagement gift. Received it this morning -- very well-packaged. I didn't order the gift box but it comes with a white box nonetheless, well-padded inside, and the elephant is the cutest thing ever! Like the other reviewers have said, it is of solid, heavy construction.
Where this baby gets two stars knocked off for me is that a) it doesn't stand on flat surfaces well. I don't know if I received a defective one or not, but it does that annoying wobbly thing anytime you put a ring on its trunk, and b) there is a small nick in its trunk, which surely formed during the process of it being made and not during shipping, etc.
I wouldn't mind these sort of issues if this was for me, but it's for an old friend for her engagement. Unfortunately, I still have to give my friend this as a gift as her party is tonight and I have no other way of getting her something before then. Hopefully she'll forgive me."
