there is an online store that appears to have them in stock, but does not. There’s no need to check Maxima, as they do not have them.
So if you have a Wanda stuck back in the bottom of the toy box that your child does not care about, or can check out the local sales and thrift stores, please help these families.
Luca is 4 years old and has had a ‘small’ Wanda since birth. It goes everywhere with him. He is now saying that he does not need to write to Santa to ask for a large Wanda as Santa knows how much he would love and care for him that he will just bring it. Heartbreaking for us to watch as they are now discontinued, and we are frantically trying to find one to not disappoint him at Christmas.
Please Please help us find a Large Wanda in time for Christmas if you can.
[pinit] I have been searching online for days trying to find the WANDA elephant from Manhattan Toy. My son has had one for 2 years and even with a reserve of two extras, we have lost the last one this past week.
I see another posting of the same elephant, which is incredible, and am hoping you can find just one more, any size will do. I am desperate.
Please let me know if you think there is any hope…..Thank you so much,
Stephanie is looking for the Large Size as a replacement for her son’s special Wanda Elephant that he lost.

I too am looking for the Small Size grey Manhattan Toys elephant. We are desperate. We also placed an order with Maximacenter, only to find out that they no longer carry the elephant.
Jared, my son who will turn 4 in September, cannot live without his small “Ellie”. A friend of ours (who knew nothing about babies!) came to visit Jared when he was born and brought the elephant as a gift.
As soon as Jared was old enough to have a stuffed animal in his crib with him, Ellie has been there. Jared and Ellie are best friends- Jared cannot sleep without her. We only have ONE Ellie which means that she is filthy, worn and very loved. We don’t let her leave the house unless we are going on an overnight or vacation. We never put her in checked luggage, she’s always in my handbag.
Jared understands that Ellie is a one-of-a-kind. But we fear the day that something will happen to Ellie. She’s as old as Jared is… almost 4, and her seams are starting to open up a bit.
We are hoping that somewhere we can find a few new small Wanda elephants so that heaven forbid anything happens to Jared’s Ellie, we will be able ‘replace’ her.
