The White Elephant! Minimum level is 15 for participation. Android and iOS. This is a Luck Event.
Have fun and enjoy your event! Rynetory2 :D

Please use Farm 2: Buy/Sell (https://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?98021-Farm-2-Buy-Sell-Thread-2) thread for sale of event items.
Any buy/sell posts in this thread will be removed. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.


The items needed for the White Elephant Presents aren't able to be made. In order to get them, you'll need to make other things in the buildings that drop these items. For example, if you make French Fries in the Fryer, you have a chance to get Festive Beignets. :)

Sorry for any confusion!


The Big Top Tent is an optional item that will drop additional items needed to make the White Elephant Presents. It is not required, however, you will receive a fully made White Elephant Preset for completing the Goal related to the Big Top Tent. Presents are made in the Festive Workshop. :)


Just to clarify :)

For farmers under level 38, the Red Ugly Sweaters will drop from the Dairy, the Festive Holly Wreaths from Apple Trees, and Gold Ugly Sweaters come from the Windmill. These sources are different for players level 38 and above.

Hope that helps!

Ok after you have given the tree a deluxe present in 60 minutes it changes colour.
40941

Drum roll......
An elephant fountain
40942

The prize is in your cellar.

This event is kind of like when we use the collections gallery.
Except the festive tree is what we give the deluxe present too.
We touch the tree after sixty minutes...when it changes colour.
Then you have a chance to win the baby white elephant or one of nine other prizes.
RANDOM 1 out of 10 chance for the pet each time.

I don't think the elephant is a prize for the separate goals.
Thank you pookiebear for doing the goals.
When she reaches the end of the side goals we will know for sure.

They might have different names, but basically, these are the recipes in the Festive Workshop (feel free to edit all of this):

Red present: 1 Green Ugly Sweater, 1 Festive Beignets, 1 Festive Candy Cane; crafting time: 5 minutes
Blue present: 1 Red Ugly Sweater, 1 Festive Holy Wreath, 2 Festive Ham; crafting time: 15 minutes
Green present: 1 Gold Ugly Sweater, 2 Festive Truffle, 2 Festive Cookies; crafting time: 30 minutes
Deluxe present: 1 Red present, 1 Green present, 1 Blue present; crafting time: 30 minutes

The Deluxe present is the only one that can be placed under the Festive tree (cost: 50 coins) that offers the chance to win a White Elephant.

You craft the presents in the Festive Workshop (cost: 1,000 coins? 10 minutes to build) and place them under a Festive tree (cost: 50 coins). I assume the trees are one-time use only. However, depending on what buildings you have, you may need to buy some of the items in the Newspaper (assuming they are sellable) so you can craft the presents.

First I have a conversation about sugar gliders and that same day the sugar glider event happened. Then I tell someone that an elephant would be cute but maybe impossible and S8 made it happen. :eek:

I was not going to participate in a Christmas event because i don’t care for the holiday and didn’t want Christmas decorations or anything Christmas related but the elephant is cute and this seems like an easy one.

Trying to play the white elephant guest, but several of the items to make don't show up on the lists to make at the correct buildings. So far I can't make beignets, and candy canes, but there may be more!! HELP!!!! Also the warehouse has deliveries including what looks like a frothy cranberry drink in a mug made in the cafe. No cafe to purchase. Playing on an Android. I have uninstalled and reinstalled with no luck. No updates available.

The items aren't crafted. They drop when we collect other items from the different buildings. For example, I might get a Candy Cane when I collect a Biscuit from the Kitchen...or I might not. The drops are random.

Post one is updated for the festive workshop.

You want a festive candy cane.
These come from the kitchen
Make biscuits ...shortest item to make.
When you collect the biscuits you hope for a candy cane to drop....it is random.

So, the "Red Present" is identified as "Present from Morgan". I'll guess that the blue one is a "Present from Jed" since he seems to be the focus of the next set of goals, and the green one is a "Present from Piper". Can't say for certain until I get there, though...

For the Win the Elephants task the Festive Cookies are not counting from the Bakery even though they?ve dropped several times. Anyone else having this problem?

The thing is if you make presents it takes away the item

Once again I cannot seem to get cookies from the bakery. Ugh. It’s always something. I don’t like theses luck based events. Not very Christmasy but cute elephants...hope I can get it. Bought the blue one as it is too cute.

My dairy gives me the red ugly sweater

The red sweater is the only item that I have been unable to get so far. The goals say to get it from the dairy. I keep making cheese and cream, but haven't received a sweater yet.

Just to clarify :)

For farmers under level 38, the Red Ugly Sweaters will drop from the Dairy, the Festive Holly Wreaths from Apple Trees, and Gold Ugly Sweaters come from the Windmill. These sources are different for players level 38 and above.

Hope that helps!

I think my bakery has broken down because I’m not getting the pyramid shaped pile of biscuits. I’ve used a flag boost with no joy. I’m also really struggling with space and of course everyone is selling the same things so not moving on in the event. I love this game but get so frustrated at the same time. Am I doing something wrong?

I hate to be cynical about it, but it feels as though the drop rates for the Bakery, Kitchen, and Deep Fryer have been tweaked to limit drops. On the one hand, I understand--these buildings have some quick-crafting recipes, so dropping event items too quickly reduces the challenge. On the other hand, it is extremely frustrating to craft so many items and see such poor returns on Candy Canes, Cookies, and Beignets. Fortunately, there are still 12 days to go, so there is still time to complete all the goals.

Also I am thinking of giving up as I use the craft kitchen and drier and bakery and fairy a lot and am getting nothing, however I can?t seem to be able to remove the Christmas trees from my farm. The seems to be no way to put them into storage or delete or saw down.

Im on level 30. The items that easy to get stock up n take place at barn make it full to the max, and the other things that hard to get never shows up even i craft n craft for stuff that not even needed n they cant be stored anymore, barn too full not enough tool to upgrade. I've thrown away 20 green sweaters n 15 gold sweaters by put them on store n discard them. No one will buy them n the barn already too full with all these items that never complete to make presents. Frustrating. I was only able to make 1 presents so far and got the candy path. Sorry for my poor english.

The drops are random, sometimes they slow down and other times more. Try collecting at different times. We won't be able to store the event items until the event is over. Looks like you may be new here, have a read at Event Guide, link in Post 1.

I believe they count the quantities in your barn and it decreases when you use them for crafting. Make sure you have at least 1 in your barn in order for the task to count.

I have not seen reports of glitches so far. I'm using version 2.6.6 and it's working fine. Maybe it's just very low drop rates? I don't think this is a bug unless not a single person in the community has collected from these machines. I'll keep a lookout for bugs. Try making another craft to see if it helps to change your rate. Maybe try different collection times and styles, a few and in batches. I hope your drop rates increase soon. Keep going.

The elephant is a random prize from giving the festive tree the present.
There are ten prizes so each time you collect from the tree you win a prize.


The goal is something you can do but the pet comes from the festive tree

The white elephant pet is not from goals.

It is obtained by buying a festive tree and giving it a deluxe present.
You then have a one out of ten chance of getting the pet elephant.
This is a luck based event.
There are a lot of days left
Crossing fingers that you get the little hiding elephant soon

I have 23 prizes not cookies. And it was because I was doing it constantly with a boost. Getting repeat prizes. Not cool
You would think I would have a baby elephant by know. 2 cookies in the last 5 hours making bread constantly.

I?ve won: 5x Peppermint patches (which I have tons already)
- 6 balloons
- 2 tool racks
- 4 Ballon boards
- 2 peanut boiler
- 1 wooden elephant
- 3 Plushie stacks

No elephant...I don?t get it. I?m contemplating contacting Apple for my latest purchase as I can?t tolerate this money grabbing game.

But on that note Merry Christmas :)

You are missing my point. 23 tries!?! And not even a new prize. This happens constantly and I’m just tired of it. I see other nbrs with even 2 elephants. It’s highly frustrating and with Christmas I don’t have tons of time.

I also I play pretty much non stop because I can’t sleep...What I was saying before is I know nbrs who got it on their first few try’s. I don’t get it...have you used boosts? I have...I’m tired not lucky.

I’m not interested in those prizes, just saying...have a good day/nite.

3? I am envious. But keep going. When the time comes, you can switch out any of the elephants and bring in another one. Or, perhaps later S8 will increase the number of elephants enclosures we can have (along with offering more elephants beyond the white and the blue).

To know if you've completed the goal, you can check the goal itself, or you can tap on the Festive Workshop to see if you've gotten the Present from Jed (tap on the recipe for the White Elephant Gift), or on a Festive Tree to see if you've received the White Elephant Gift.

Has anybody else notice the odd pricing for event items if you need to dispose of surplus filling up your storage?

I’ve only managed to make two deluxe parcels so far due to low drop rate from the bakery and kitchen, not holding out much hope for an elephant ��

You're right that this is a luck based event. I'm afraid there's no guarantee or magic number that you get the baby white elephant within X turnins. In previous past events, members got lucky at first few turn in, some had to try many times before they got it and some didnt get it. It's completely random. Good luck to you!

''Twas the night before Christmas
Not a creature was stirring except for the cat
Who was sneaking up on the sleeping rat
When, what to my eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny elephants,
With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be Stormie Claus
He reached into his sack and with his gloved hand
He tossed little white elephant gifts all over the land

Good Luck to All!
And to All a Good Night!

This event goes until January 2, 2018 which is like nine more days.
You can keep making presents, buying festive trees until that date.
That is just a goal....the 20 presents and the prize is you get another deluxe present to turn in.
If you want to make a hundred deluxe presents and turn them in you can.
So there is a lot of time left

Seriously something wrong with drop rate for bakery. 27 collections in a row and not one cookie. Two days in a row.
This is like when the chickens had a horrible drop rate in the last event like this. Is Storm working on this?

Zero from bakery and kitchen last 2 days - no matter if I make bread or cranberry bread, cornbread or grape tarts - seems like it should be set based on what you’re making! Totally frustrated - and getting decorations I don’t need - just want to sell all the junk filling my barn at this point - an unachievable “LUCK” event.

You know, I can understand it being luck as to whether you get the elephant as a pet. But I don’t understand why the drop rate is not consistent. If it says you get an item from the bakery, then you should get it. These “luck” events are terrible. In fact, any event that has items being dropped are terrible if the items don’t actually drop when you collect from them. I’m shocked that Storm8 would give something like this at Christmas...some of the other games I play actually give gifts to their players. Imagine that, rewarding the players by giving them a gift for being faithful to the game. I have loved playing this game and love a challenge, but luck events suck...my opinion for what it’s worth.

I can’t believe you’ve been able to make this many. I used boosts and even then I have only made 15. And a couple times I received more than one event item at a time. :p

I just started playing I enjoyed the turkey for thanksgiving cause it was something daily and you won stuff for thanksgiving, I was looking forward for the Christmas to win me a tree to put out each year, don't get me wrong I like playing this game I haven't won the the elephant yet I and I've done 14 presents I have no luck so probably want win this but I was really looking forward to winning a Christmas tree and decorations to store for Christmas to put up each year. But enjoying the game and really want to win the elephant.

You have a 1/10 chance of getting it. I got the elephant on my second present. Keep trying! You have till January 2nd

If you are on Goal 12, then yes, you do need to purchase another tree to satisfy the goal. I wouldn't worry, though...Goal 13 (post #54 and post #130) requires you to trade 20 White Elephant Gifts, so you'll need 20 Trees anyway.

Goal 13
Trade your White Elephant Gifts! x20
Rewards: 1,000 coins; 1 White Elephant Gift; 28 xps

Do you mean that once you reach this goal the 20th gift guarantees you a white elephant as a gift, or just a deluxe parcel which could contain any of the prizes? If the former then we should be saving up our deluxe parcels and redeeming them only once we get to this goal.
Please could you clarify?

Okay, I finished Goal 13 and made all 20 exchanges (plus the very first one before Goal 13 opened). I still have not received the Tool Rack or the Balancing Elephant. Guess I'll keep working the event until I receive both those prizes. In the meantime, I can confirm that Goal 13 is the last goal in the series.

Edit: finally got the Tool Rack in the 24th exchange. Now, I just need to collect the Balancing Elephant.

I'm not a lucky person and usually in these events I get nothing special. I was so surprised when I got the first one then totally shocked to get 2 more.

Not lucky, I?d say your very lucky, 41 times I?ve tried, still no elephant, in fact cookies from the bakery are like 1 to 100 crafts, I hate this game!

I've actually kind of had it with this particular "task". I almost didn't participate to begin with coming in so close on the heals of the turkey, beaver, and sugar glider events, but was "all-in" once I did start.
Well... I've done every task level required, including the last one needing 20 festive tree gifts alone (so 50+ total across the 13 tasks?), and am now at 10 more above and beyond that... and still no elephant.
Have some neighbors telling me they got the elephant after only 4 or 5 gifts just in the early levels...
How many plush animal, balloon, and tool racks do I need before I get 1 stinking elephant?????
I "understand" it's a luck event, but my frustration level on this at this point is almost at the "quit and delete the game entirely" point....

I am getting so frustrated with this event. Neighbours who have finished is trying to help me with what I need to make gifts. They put them in their shop, yet I can’t see them. What is the point of allowing us to sell yet we can’t buy them. Same with the shop, when it refreshes it comes up with loads of sold items. What is the point?

This gives players a way to discard event items.
Some players don't do events and some players have finished.
The items can be put in the store but only storm bots or Stormie can buy them.

This is how the last few events have worked.

12-26-17, 02:44 PM
I thought I was going so well with this event the first couple of days and now I want to just give up, the drop rate for items needed is ridiculous, it has been days since I have been able to get certain items and it doesn’t matter what I craft, still nothing,

claeystrails
12-26-17, 05:05 PM
Just because that is the way the last events have worked doesnt mean its right. If we achieve the goal or quit we should be able to help our neighbors. We should be able to post and sell any crafted or dropped item. I hope Storm8 is listening. Especially in a luck event, we should be able to help each other. I like many others are frustrated that some people have 3, by luck, and I cant get one. And thats all I want is one

''Twas the night before Christmas
Not a creature was stirring except for the cat
Who was sneaking up on the sleeping rat
When, what to my eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny elephants,
With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be Stormie Claus
He reached into his sack and with his gloved hand
He tossed little white elephant gifts all over the land

Good Luck to All!
And to All a Good Night!

It was a Xmas miracle! I got my heffalump,and he's adorable! I wanna saw maybe my 8th try? I've only been able to make like 12 total brown presents due to the bakery bring tight slots, as it were. But I like these luck e ents alot better. I did the v'day event, and I didnt get the bear, but I did like that event. I hated the beaver and turkey events, but this has been a good one for me. It helps that I won the elephant, yes! But again, I know what I'm getting into for the longer term and can choose to play or not, but with the beaver one it was just impossible. This one, like v'day, was reasonable to participate in. I didn't know u could win the heffalump more than once! Crossing my fingers for another! Or peppermint paths. I'm loving the paths.

CONGRATULATIONS
I am not a fan of luck events except at a holiday like Christmas when everyone is so busy cooking and so many outside events.
At least with a luck event you have a chance to turn in a few presents for a chance to win.
If you have to build something most players can't with time limited to being online.
Christmas is my favourite holiday
And thank you for the like on the sleigh with tiny elephants instead of reindeer :)

I?ve gotten three tool racks so far. I?d love to hand them over to some folks, for a more splendid gift! I know this is a farm game, but I prefer more cute items myself. I?ve prepared over 60 items in the kitchen and bakery each. I?ve gathered less than 5 parts from each.

I?ll give this a couple more days and then I?m DONE. I?m used this luck based wins but the way the gifts are so intricate, I?m exhausted.
Especially when we aren?t getting what we need to make them.

I love the blue elephant but unless I want his sister, I won?t waste real money on purchasing him.

LOL a lot of people won’t be leaving. They threaten to leave, say they will stop spending real money unless they are given what they want, and even say that they hate this game but I see them come back for every event. Each time they are back they same the same thing. I don’t get it but then again I don’t take this game as seriously I suppose.

Like real life, not everyone wins the lottery or hits the jackpot. And this is not a goal type event where you get a guaranteed prize. To ease your frustrations, I would suggest that you be realistic about chance/luck and manage your expectations to avoid disappointments, like I did. It's wiser to pick and choose events that suit your likings. I am usually not the lucky ones so I started this event with zero, yes I mean zero, expectations to win the elephant and my mindset was that I was happy to win any prize, didn't matter which prize.

You still have time so keep trying if you wish and your drop rates are good, at least you made way way more presents than I could. Keep calm, be realistic and best of luck!! Cheers!

I finally got mine on Christmas Eve, 50 some tries...I think it’s hard when other people get in in the 1st try, which is crazy. It makes others envious in my opinion... There has to be a middle ground. People get upset and I can understand that. It really should be re thought out.
But don’t give up!

12-28-17, 08:39 AM
Yeah, I do agree that setting our expectations is important. I would not be upset if I did not win the elephant (though I would be disappointed), but I don?t understand the drop rate for the items needed to make the gifts. Can someone address this with Storm8 so that in the future when we have these kinds of events, items actually drop at a decent rate (at least one for 4 items collected). Some of these items take a long time to make. And we need those items to fill our plane orders. Thanks for the encouragement...I am still trying :)

Be thankful you even have an elephant. I am about to give up trying. Had over 100 attempts and all I have is rubbish in my cellar and NO ELEPHANT. the bakery has now stopped giving me the parts I need to continue. After making nearly 50 loaves of bread, it gave me NOTHING. Really beginning to dislike this type of event as this is what happens all the while, so annoying. I was planning to buy the pink elephant to go with it, but now I am not going to bother as I stand no chance of getting the white one.

Yes I do still have time to complete and I will carry on, so far I have had 66 tries, bought the blue elephant with real money? Could this be why I?m not getting the white elephant? 68 attempts is a bit ridiculous and yes I could have chosen to not do the event but would still get the drops in my barn, as said in a previous reply, good thing about this event is that it does assist with levelling up.

Take care and happy new year.

The problem with larger stuff is that if you don't have alot of space on your farm, then there's nowhere to put big stuff. I think storm8 is in a Kobayashi Maru here.

Only the bots can buy them.

Why is it only bots can buy the event items?

I won my baby white elephant, and the task won't clear, I have everything else ticked off, but the baby white elephant won't tick as complete. The baby white elephant is in the bottom left corner of the screenshot, with the task window open saying I don't have it. Storm8 don't want to help me with this, they told me to go to the forums.

I have both the blue and white elephant, however it won't clear from my task list. I'm also trying to sell parts, but reading the forum, only bots can buy them so I'm not sure I can help anyone get their white elephant, but if people can buy parts and presents, they are in my store 😊

This event does not allow players to buy/sell event items. Some events do and some don't.

Congrats on your new pet! Did you win it before you get to the goal? Tasks accomplished prior to reaching the respective goal will not register. Please let me know if that's not the case. Read guidelines on goals, links in Post 1 if you are new to goals.

Getting frustrated. Low drop rates in bakery and have already given 15 gifts with no elephant. It is so cute. I will keep trying. Anyone want to sell extra green presents or festive cookies?

Can you restart your device and game and check again? Please let me know if it's still not working and also which game version you are playing on. Thanks for your update. I've reported this in.

Not sure how it fixed, I didn't reboot my phone, but I went into the game a couple of hours ago and it fixed, the task cleared, and I got the 2500 coins, and 30 experience. I wish I knew how it fixed so I could help everyone who is having trouble.
I have Android 7.0, auto updates with Play Store, so the game auto updates.

Restarting the game does the trick to resolve such issues as it reloads your game progress, although in some cases some devices require a restarting of the device itself. Glad it's sorted out.

FYI I have written a self help for players to fix issues on your own within a few minutes. See chapter What can I do to try to resolve my game issues? in the Main Guide. I would encourage players to read it and try to diy which is quick and easy.

Or you can keep it out, if you think it matches your farm. Many of the older players have left the Lunar Workshop from a couple of years ago out on our farms because it looks nice. Also, since the Festive Workshop can generate a heart for visitors (while other event buildings do not), it might be worth leaving it out--if you have space--for just that reason.

It would be nice that if we had extra white elephants we could trade them for a blue one... Or buy one for less gems if we turn in white elephants... :)

I see a lot of people getting upset about the drop rates in the kitchen and bakery and wondering why Storm8 does not fix this glitch. It is not a glitch, that is why. As with every event of this type, there are always a couple of places with bad drop rates to encourage people to spend money on gems to fill in the spaces for drops they are not getting. This may be a free game, but the goal is to still make money, of course. And rightfully so, as a lot of time and talent have gone into creating it.
I have not gotten the white elephant yet and I try not to be upset about it. I am continuing to SLOWLY make things and will try, but mostly focusing on filling train orders and collecting from pets to increase my gems to save.
I did the luck event awhile back with the chick as the main prize and worked my tail off and spent lots of gems and still never got one, when other people had several. I decided then that it was not worth it to me to spend all the time and gems/money, for frustration. Instead I ended up just buying my chick months later when it came up for sale. The elephant will certainly come up for sale too. Save your gems and time and buy it later and skip the frustration and stress also. This helps the game to remain fun for me.

Great advice, I have noticed since trying and trying to get drops, that my truck orders have been asking for some of those crafts from the bakery and kitchen so it has helped that, sadly though I have tried 73 times now and still not got the elephant, everyone seems to think it is a 1 in 10 chance. As the drop is so rare in the bakery, then when I finally get 2 I make the gold parcel, leaving no cookies until more drops, the task list is all ticked Barr the cooky, could this be why I am not getting the elephant, because at the time if the present under the tree, the task list isn’t complete. If that is the case I’d need at least ten cookies, I get one cookie per 14 bread collection �� x

I am at level 72 and I am not able to buy any of the items needed for this game. I can sell items, and people have been buying some of my excess, but I cannot see or buy others. Is it guaranteed to win one if you do all of the quests? I have made over 35 packages and still I do not have the elephant. Very frustrating. This is the second quest that has almost made me delete this game and quit playing. The sugar glider was easy, but the beaver and the elephant are impossible to get!!! Frustrated !

No one can buy the event items put up for sale except for stormie or storm 8 bots.
Players can put the items in their stores to give them room in their barns.
Finishing the quest will not get you an elephant.
This is a luck event so the only way to win is to make presents and give the deluxe one to the tree.
There are ten prizes so each time you turn in a collection mathematically you have a one out of ten chance of winning the elephant.
Luck events can really stink for the person that doesn't win the grand prize.
All I can tell you is to keep making those gifts and hopefully you will get the elephant.
Good Luck!

Thank you! This is a first for me so I wasn't sure whether we got to keep it and/if we would be able to store it. I did want to keep it on my farm for now. However I change the layout of my farm often and when it starts to feel overcrowded I store everything I can store. It?ll be nice to have that option with this one!

For my part, I think I will later surround it with my 6 Aspen Groves (from the Beaver event) and some smaller neutral (non-seasonal) decorations off to one side of my farm.

Probably not. Most likely we will need to sell the extra items after the event ends.

You can actually sell things now...if any of your neighbors supposedly have, say, 8 items in their shop but when you look only 3 are displayed, then most likely the other 5 are event items (which we are unable to buy).

Ok, so if it?s a 1 in 10 chance of getting this naughty little elephant lol, why haven?t I got him 7 times, I have done 78 parcels under the tree and all I am getting are decorative items, back to work tomorrow so won?t be playing at all, obviously, so only today to carry on xx

One in ten means every time you turn in a collection it is a one in ten chance ...odds don't change cause you turned in 78 collections.
I feel your frustration once in a Halloween luck event I was way over 70 collections before I got the pet and I remember players saying they got it on the first try.
I think rynetory2 was over a hundred collections in a carnival luck event for a pony.
There was an easter event that I got a zillion beautiful purple paths and fencing but I never got the kitty with the bunny ears. A couple of years later that kitty was sold and I bought that sweetie so quickly.
And that same carnival event that rynetory2 suffered through I got the pony on the first collection.

Crossing fingers you get the elephant today.

Aww bless you, thank you, hope you and rynetory2 both also get the elephant, on the upside the things I have crafted for it, I have been able to use for train and truck loads, and sell in shop so it isn’t all bad.

Happy new year xx

You can place the prize on your farm.
Then press on it like you are going to store it...at this point you can sell the prize if you wish too.

Congratulations on the elephant.

Snowman farmer is a decoration.

Let it snowman puts snowflakes in the air for a few minutes if you tap it

Your post took me down memory lane. Aye, I got my carnival pony at the #134 turn in and continued to the 2nd pony at #181 turn in. :cool: It was such a memorable event for me. Luck doesnt smile on me thus luck events are naturally tougher for me. I never have the lucky wonder of having the first hit first pet but I do look forward to the day when I see it. :)

Good luck to all trying for your elephant! Who knows your next turn in may be that magical moment?

It will be interesting to see a poll for this event, maybe it could include asking how many deluxe parcel trade ins were needed to get the elephant.
I’ve kept all my prizes so I can do a tally.
In all so far I have 34 prizes, including 2 white elephants ( I got the first one on Christmas Day morning!), 11 sets of 6 candy paths, 7 elephant toys with wheels, 5 peanut boilers, 4 elephant balloons, 3 balloon boards, 3 stacked elephants, 2 elephant fountains, one balancing elephant and one tool rack.

We should be able to sell event prizes for coins. I doubt any one needs, for example, 10 elephant balloons. Even for the minimum coinage, would be helpful for most.
