Subject:  OT: "Elephant folks"? Date:  12/12/2005  1:41 PM

DH has Gene Autry's "Christmas Cowboy" CD. In the Sant Claus is Coming to Town song, he talks about some of the toys Santa is bringing, "Curly head dolls that toddle and coo, elephant folks and kiddie cars too"

Are elephant folks a particular kind of toy there used to be, or just a way of saying elephant shaped figurines?

DH at age 60 claims not to know, so maybe these are toys from the 40s or before? Anybody remember such a toy?

TIA
