I don’t know what it is about giant stuffed giraffes, but they are just so insanely cute in a nursery. Don’t you think?

That’s why, when my mom asked what she and my dad could give me for a baby present, I couldn’t resist requesting a giant stuffed giraffe for my own little girl’s nursery. My mom jumped at the chance to give a “fun” gift rather than a “practical” gift (the other half of my gift that I requested can only be described as practical), and a few days later this giant box from Amazon arrived on my doorstep.
Eeek!!! Nelson is even cuter in person than I had hoped!
And apparently giant stuffed giraffes are fun for the whole family, not just babies. My husband has had a grand old time chasing the kitties around the house with Nelson . . .
. . . and now Nelson has the habit of standing in random places to “surprise” people and kitties when they are least expecting it.

We are a mature bunch around here. :)
By the way, the best deal that I found for giant stuffed giraffes was on Amazon for the Melissa and Doug giraffe (that’s what Nelson is) – you can get your own giraffe here.
