My daughter Penny's favorite animal has always been a giraffe. I bought this stuffed giraffe, now known as Parkey, before she was born. I used it to take her monthly pictures for her first year. It's amazing how the giraffe seemed to shrink each month. When Penny was around 18 months old, she started cuddling her giraffe. I think she was around 2 years old when she named the giraffe Parkey. Penny is now 6 1/2 years old and Parkey can no longer hold it's head up and it's fur is all worn. All signs of being very loved.
I couldn't resist buying this sweet giraffe stamp set by Reverse Confetti. I also bought the coordinating die cut set. And I have to say, it is one of the easiest die cuts to line up and cut out the stamped image.
