This Precious Moments figurine is from the Birthday Collection. It combines the idiom that an elephant never forgets with the custom of tying string around your finger to remember something. It depicts a seated elephant with string tied around his trunk. From the tear escaping from his eye, it is clear that just the thought of forgetting makes him sad.
This figurine was first issued in 1991 and retied in 2001. This one bears the first year production mark of the vessel and it comes in the original box.
