Giraffe plushie characteristics

Since plushies can be made to any size, stuffed animal giraffes aren’t necessarily as tall as the animals they’re based on. Giraffes themselves are the world's tallest mammals. In plushie form, their towering legs and long necks are often shortened quite a bit to allow the plushies to keep their shape. Still, there are some giraffe plushies that do adhere to a giraffe’s original proportions. These stuffed animals are often made of stronger, harder materials. What most giraffe plushies do have in common is their yellow and/or brown spots. Giraffe plushies slightly resemble llama plushies, as they both have relatively long necks.

The giraffe is the most popular model when it comes down to giant stuffed animals. There are giraffe stuffed animals reaching 2 feet (0,6 m.), 8 feet (2,4 m.), or even more. Toy company Melissa & Doug, known for producing a series of giant stuffed animals, created one of the most popular giant giraffes of all, the 4-foot-tall Melissa & Doug Giraffe.
