Giraffes make excellent baby toys. I know because my daughter had a giraffe lovie or blankie and also a large, plastic fisher-price toddler toy.
The body shape of a giraffe makes it easy to grab hold of and there are the exciting extra bits (in the eyes of a young child) which include the 4 legs, ears and the hair covered horns on a giraffe which are not antennas as many people think but are called ossicones.
That's a whole lot of body parts on a toy giraffe to chew, pull, twist and swing around! So I think that's why kids love them as toys.
They make a gorgeous theme for baby nurseries and toddler bedrooms because they have soft, neutral colors which are easy on the eyes. And they naturally fit in with the type of animals that young kids tend to learn all about first which are zoo and safari animals.
Giraffes then work naturally well with other animals such as elephants and lions too if you want to expand on the theme or range.
