The company is still in business and continue to make stuffed toys for children. Here is the link to their website. gund.com/.../animals?_=pf&pf_t_animal=animal%3AJungle I can't seem to find this elephant online but in their jungle collection they still make a grey elephant that is similar to this one.

I would like to suggest that you take a photo and send them an email about your stuffed toy. They would be a lot of help and it would be easy for them to identify this stuffed toy and tell you the year it was made and more about it.

Maybe the answer would be faster contacting the company that makes this plush toy. - https://gund.com - also here is a little history about the company. - en.wikipedia.org/.../gund
