Here's a stuffed elephant I made for my new niece/nephew on the way... It's from the book Knitted Gifts. It was the most challenging thing I've knit so far, but also my most favorite! I kept coming to this website to figure out stiches I've never knit before! Also, using 2 circular needles at the same time took some getting used to... nevertheless, I had LOTS of fun making it :)

ECB, for what it's worth, my 3yo and 5yo daughters know who Babar is! :) LOVE the Pogo quote, btw. :)

I love your elephant. I made a blue one that I posted a while back from a different pattern. I love the ears on yours! Also I tried to patch in a picture of Babar for you to see but couldn't do it. Go to Amazon.com and search for "Babar" and you will come to the books about this elephant.
And you'll see him there and you can decide for yourself if your's is a look-a-like. You did a great job.
