Didn't even know what Elephant Thoughts was about until we walked through the door. Very intersting spot, especially for young kids. We even bought a large giraffe made in Kenya out of rubber flip flops that wash up on their beaches.

Very interesting little shop. Live animals, educational toys. Staff was very interactive and the kid really enjoyed herself. The toys were a bit on the expensive side but its more of an experience.

Took the family out for a drive and we noticed the sign out front. Our 3 year old twin boys enjoyed playing with the display toys and looking at the lizards. Next time we're in Collingwood we will be sure to stop by again.
