Hattie The Elephant
No word on whether her namesake that once lived in the Central Park Zoo could do a handstand, but this pachyderm made from new growth beech wood certainly can. Hattie is from the always expanding Wooden Beasts series by David Weeks, also known for his collectible, more serious take on furniture and lighting. His beasts and robots are made with durable wood limbs connected by elastic-band "muscles," allowing them to posed in all kinds of ways. A modern classic for play or collecting!
