When we moved to our new home, my oldest son was setting up his room. For the past 11 years, his stuffed Geoffrey Giraffe doll had taken the coveted favorite stuffed animal position on his bed. He had decided that he no longer wanted to sleep with Giraffie - and in to the closet he went. I was so sad that I had to do something. I designed this guy and showed it to him and he smiled and got a little teary eyed. This one is for my oldest son, may he always love his Giraffie, even if he is in the closet.
