Inspired by the pink elephant at the Diamond Inn Motel in Las Vegas.  

Built in 1940 the Diamond Inn Motel is one of the oldest buildings still standing on the strip. 

There are a handful of mass-produced fiberglass pink elephants scattered across the country, but this unique Jumbo is not one of them. It appears to be a custom made elephant!

The pink elephant came from Disney World, probably in the 50’s. He used to trumpet loudly, but the noise caused some accidents. Because of that, the county made the owner take the sound mechanism out.

This pin measures 1.5" wide and is designed by the talented Dustin Williams. See more of his work at
