I purchased this elephant ashtray by #YINASI for my daughter so that she wouldn't put her cigarette butts out oi n my lawn. To me it's not only disrespectful but plain out disgusting! I figured having a nice ashtray would help t hu is situation. It didn't. When I gave it to my da daughter she said it was "too nice to use as an ashtray ". So now I'm looking for a bucket I can put sand in ( much cheaper too). So she will be using this elephant as a jewelry holder to take off her rings and earrings at the end of the day. It really is "too nice" to use as an ashtray!
