Toy Giraffe Gerald


Gerald is a gorgeous cuddly giraffe, hand knitted from 100% organic cotton in a beautiful shade of blue (not pastel, yay!). Who could resist his wide smile and cheeky pose? These ethically made toys are handmade in Bangladesh, and buying one helps to support fairly-paid employment in rural areas. Perfect for a new baby or a young child, Gerald is approx 28cm tall and is safe to pop in the wash once he’s been cuddled a few too many times.


Product Story

Gerald is a bit confused. He’s a toy giraffe but he really wants to play in the park all day. He’s quite cheeky and loves to go on the roundabout. Gerald is perfect for your baby’s first den.

This beautifully made giraffe needs lots of cuddling, in fact so much so that he’s quite friendly with the washing machine.

Our knitted giraffe toy is suitable from birth and is made from 100% organic cotton. Buying Gerald provides communities in Bangladesh with fairly-paid rural employment.

Gerald is 28 cm tall with a big smile and long arms waiting to cuddle up.

In addition to producing wonderful quirky toys Best Years has values we love.  It’s a member of the British Association of Fair Trade Shops and by doing so supports lots of disadvantaged communities.

Play Ideas

Gerald is a real snuggle monster. He loves to be cuddled and carried all day long. He doesn’t mind if it’s by his arms or legs or even by his ears.
