Reusable straws are so hot right now, so why not make some for kids? Sure there are those twirly straws from the 90s, but those are just simply not cool anymore. There are now elephant straws that exist, and they might be the coolest things ever. They're perfect for kids or elephant lovers who love using straws!
The Elephant Straws are essentially an elephant that sits on the bottom of your drink, and his trunk points straight up to act as the straw. How it works is, the elephant trunk/straw connects to the top of the elephants face, and a tube goes through the elephants body down to one of his back feet that has an opening on the bottom of it to suck up the liquid.
The elephant's back foot keeps slightly raised up compared to the other three feet to make sure the suction from the straw doesn't get clogged on the bottom of the glass. The elephant's trunk has a 90 degree bend on the end of it to make drinking easier and more comfortable, especially for kids.
The elephant straws come in a pack of 2, the elephant trunks can be disconnected from the bodies for easy cleaning, and are a fun and whimsical way to do your part to help out the environment. The elephant straws are sold by Paladone, and are currently in a pre-order phase.
