There is something endearing about baby giraffes that make them such cute toys for kids. Getting a baby giraffe stuffed animal for a child can be a great learning aid. Why a giraffe and not a bear? Well giraffe’s are beautiful, and bears are jerks. Giraffes invoke wonder at first glance because of their distinctive long neck and long spindly legs and unless you live in the African Savanna plains or next to a zoo with an actual Giraffe on site, most people can go a lifetime without ever seeing an actual Giraffe. There are different stuffed baby giraffes on the market from a four-foot tall stuffed baby Giraffe to an 8-inch stuffed giraffe.

They may start showing a special interest in a particular toy and will play more with it, go everywhere with it, name them, insist on sleeping with them and generally take them along as they go through daily life.
