2012 Holiday Gift Guide: Mamas & Papas George Giraffe #HGG

A classic gets an upgrade with the Mamas & Papas George Giraffe Rocking Animal.  I remember as a young child a horse I had but it was metal? plastic with metal and tons of fun but sadly did not last due to poor construction.  Am I dating myself?  I am sold on the quality of the Mamas & Papas brand and have recommended it time and time again to friends and strangers.  George Giraffe is the perfect holiday gift for the baby/toddler on your shopping list this year. 

George was pretty easy and quick to assemble.  Just screw on the wood base/footrests and your tot is ready to ride.  George himself is made of a soft and thick plush fabric.  The colors are vibrant and eye catching.  There are many tactile features for your wee one such as the taggies around George's saddle and pull tail.  Mason is just starting to grasp things and intentionally play so it will be fun watching him pull up and play with the taggies in several months.  George is interactive - he takes 3 AA batteries (not included) to come to life.  

Kenzie just loves riding on George because he has so many features:  story time, song time and play time.  Each is activated by the feeding of treats (rainbow, apple, ball and caterpillar).  Kenzie likes to pretend to eat the treats herself at which point I yell gently point out that these are for George only.  This is the amazing ahh moment where your toddler will be like what?  I can feed my Giraffe and he is my interactive buddy.  Fun for years to come!  There is also a bag that velcros onto George's neck for storage of his treats.  Kenzie is really into songs right now so guess what she likes to do - dance along!   

George is a solid rocker made with a wood frame and stitched to perfection.  The workmanship is easily visible to the eye and one can be assured that this rocker will last through many children and be just like new when handing down to future generations.  

There are other varieties of rocking animals that are equally as fantastic with unique features of their own.  You will definitely be able to find one to fit any child's personality/preference this holiday season. 

Buy It:  You can purchase George Giraffe for $129.99.
