4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for covering cracked plaster, 11 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Melissa & Doug Giraffe Soft Toy (Rag Book)
My daughter recently bought this giraffe for my wife, for Mother's Day. I thought it was quite a sophisticated and expensive choice, given she is only 2, but I still think it is a fantastic toy. My wife, however, thinks it is not an appropriate gift for an adult and believes my daughter bought it with every intention of keeping it for herself.

The toy is huge and takes up the entire corner of our dining room, which is fantastic as I no longer have to repair the broken plaster on the wall. This also makes my wife angry.

The photo listed alongside this item shows a tiny child staring up, admiringly, at the impressively proportioned giraffe, yet the product description insists it is unsuitable for children under the age of 36 months.

From this I can only surmise that:

A) The seller harbours a callous disregard for the safety of small children
or
B) The child in the photograph is in fact a convincing stunt-dwarf, trained in the dark arts of handling dangerous animals, like a 4ft stuffed giraffe.

I have been unable to establish why this item is unsafe for the under-3s. I can only assume a toddler might try to climb it, in a desperate and frenzied bid to reach the dried apricots on the 3rd shelf up. My daughter is unlikely to do this, preferring instead to use an upended coffee table. For this reason she felt safe in disregarding the seller's advice and bought the giraffe anyway.

In summary, this is an excellent toy for all ages and if you're considering buying a 4ft stuffed giraffe; this should definitely be in your top 5 options.
