Egyptian Sphinx

Egyptian Sphinx at Giza Toy at Tapir and Friends Animal Store

Imagine traveling to ancient Thebes. You're hot, dusty, and tired. You want a bed, food, and some ouzo. But instead of an open gate, you encounter a tricksy sphinx who demands an answer to her riddle before you can enter the city. The question? "Which creature has one voice and yet becomes four-footed, two-footed, and three-footed?" Your weary brain struggles for an answer. Fortunately, genius strikes your neural pathways, and you answer, "Humans!" Ouzo, food, and a place to sleep are yours for the night! Whew. 

If you'd like your own sphinx, look no further. Our sphinx is from Egypt, but we're sure she's related to the one in Thebes. We also have a partial pantheon of Egyptian gods and some pyramids. Be sure to check them out!
