Ernest the Elephant is your buddy! He's the perfect sidekick, there when you need a friend to listen to your troubles and give you a hug. Ernest also has the same awesomeness as the other Yogibo Mates. He's filled with frictionless beads, and has two layers of stretchy, durable fabric. The outer layer is our special cotton/spandex blend which provides the softness you need in a huggable friend. All Yogibo Mates are machine washable so they can go on any adventure with you!
