Decision, decision. So many soft toys to choose from. Which one is calling me? I walked out Norman & Jules with this lovely giraffe. Designed by Danish, husband and wife team, Maileg.
This giraffe has an embroidered nose, mouth and eyes and stands 23" tall. The one I got is medium size. Don't get confuse, he also comes in mega size 48" tall or mini size about 10" tall.
What I like about this giraffe?
He has a very soft body, pelted bottom, big ears, dangly legs and arms, most of all he is wearing a colorful patterned scarf. Giraffes live primarily in African savanna, having a lovely scarf always comes in handy. Particular in San Francisco, even summer is cold here.
He is perfect and safe for children any ages.
Here are a few shots.
Perfect timing, Gilt.com is currently offering a huge discount on a similar giraffe in mega size. That giraffe is in multi-color polka dots. Hurry up before it is sold out.
Here are some fun facts about giraffe from Mental Floss.
1. Giraffes require over 75 pounds of food a day—and with a diet of leaves, this means they spend most of their time eating.
2. Giants first baseman Brandon Belt is affectionately known as the "Baby Giraffe," so naturally, when a baby giraffe was born at the San Francisco Zoo, it was named Brandon Belt. When the two met, it was predictably adorable.
