Honestly? I've always thought this giraffe looked like an overpriced dog toy. I didn't "get" it. However, my son adores this giraffe. He is 7 months old and this is one of his favourite toys. It is an excellent teether that provokes endless smiles. He's had it since Christmas and it has remained one of his go-to toys. For the amount of soothing it has done, I'd pay twice the price!
We purchased this as a Christmas present for our infant son. Several months later, he still enjoys it. This is one of the best soft books I have come across. The pictures are adorable and engaging for babies. My son loves the different textures and "finding" the hiding animals.
