MassArt students create toys for elephants at New Bedford zoo
NEW BEDFORD — The barn door in the elephant yard opened at the stroke of 10 a.m., revealing to Emily and Ruth,
the Asian elephants who live there, five new toys built for them by art students in Boston.
The scene at Buttonwood Park Zoo in New Bedford on Thursday drew comparisons to Christmas morning. The toymakers were Massachusetts College of Art and Design students enrolled in an elective called Toys for Elephants.
