Character Pink elephant
There are two colors of Jumbo the Bubble Blowing Elephant. Most common is the gray one. The pictures here are of one of the most beautiful examples of the pink Jumbo the Bubble Blowing Elephant. The elephant is covered with pink fur and he is standing on a lithographed tin base. The elephant lowers his head, dipping the bubble ring at the end of his trunk into the dish of bubble solution. He then raises his head and blows bubbles. The set originally included bubble solution in a plastic bag and a blue dish to put it in. The hat or cap the original elephants had on their heads is missing from this item.

Jumbo was manufactured by the Y Company in Japan. Takes 2 "D" batteries.
