Good Questions: Sweet Elephant Replacement?

Hello AT,

I am stumped and hope you can help me out.

I have (what I think is) the most wonderful bedside lamp ever, a plastic elephant lamp I got from Chiasso many, many years ago. It's the perfect lamp for bedside reading, and emits a nice, friendly warm glow. Sadly, after ten or so years of loyal bedside service, it's starting to show its age..... (more below)

It lost its head a while back when the cat knocked it on the floor (the head is now held on with some packing tape), and its back is starting to develop a burn mark and small crack from all those years of lightbulb warmness. Chiasso no longer sells them, and the lamp bears absolutely no markings whatsoever to identify the maker. I know the maker also had several other animal styles, including a giraffe and a bear; they come packed flat and you just fold them up into these nice 3-D little lamps. Do you have any idea if these are still being made? My internet and ebay searches have come up empty. Help!

Thanks! ~dana
