Report Card : The Elephant Pants "Mystery Box"


What’s Included {in my box} :

  • Elephant Pants

  • An Elephant-Themed Item {A Watch}

  • A Special Surprise { A Sticker & Temporary Tattoo}

  • Postcard w/ Care Instructions (thank goodness!)


Style: A +

The vibrant color mixed with neutral tones makes these pants fashionable and functional. Traditionally, one does not get to choose the pattern or color of clothing that is included in their box. One of my favorite parts of this product was the anticipation, browsing through all the color options hoping I would get this one or that one (but, really knowing that I would be happy with whichever I received.)  The watch is beautifully crafted and is something you surely will not find anywhere else. Wear them together or apart for an elephant-sized statement.

Comfort: A ++


Fit: B

The Elephant Pants come in two sizes, Standard (Women: 0-12 & Men: 28-36) and Large (Women: 12 - 18 & Men: 36-40.) However, the mystery box does not have a sizing option: all mystery boxes ship with a standard size pant. Given my experience with the pants, I would only invest in the mystery box again if I could choose the size.

Presentation/Packaging: A


Good for the World Score: A ++

$1 of every mystery box purchase benefits the Say No Campaign sponsored by the African Wildlife Foundation to prevent poaching and preserve elephants. In June $11,855 was donated!!

Was It Worth It? Yes! I would certainly order this box again, if I could choose my size, and I will certainly be investing in a pair of pants soon!

Overall  Score: A

What to do if you love these pants as much as I do: Become an Ambassador! "A feature we take great pride in is our Ambassador Program. We have a very thoughtful and passionate group of 1,000+ ambassadors who share everything from pictures and personal stories to educational elephant information in our exclusive group on Facebook. We also provide updates about product releases here before we announce it publicly.

To get a feel for the community, you can search #YogaForElephants on Instagram to track our last ambassador-led challenge. Every day for 10 days, we announced a word that describes elephants (i.e. majestic) on our Instagram. It was up to them to decide which yoga pose they felt embodied this word!

Ambassadors also get a 15% off discount code to share, and they receive 15% commission on the purchases that use it."

There you have it (straight from the elephant's mouth!)
