“We love Geraldine,” someone else wrote as they recommended this giraffe (above). “She watches the kids. She gives them rides on her back. They often play dress up. We often find her monkeying around with the other residents in our house. Unfortunately, she does have a wee bit of a drinking problem so occasionally we find her ‘asleep’, half dressed, in the middle of the floor. See above picture.”

People who like naps …

Competitive people …

“I bought the big dude for my niece’s first birthday,” one gent wrote in his glowing review. “The idea is that she’ll grow with it and it’ll give me additional favourite uncle points as time goes on. I’m thinking of it as an investment. She’ll only appreciate it more as time goes on … I won’t have to try as hard to be the favourite uncle.”

Drunk people …

“I was drunk a couple weeks ago and impulse-bought this thing since I’ve been wanting one for FOREVER!” a dad posted in his five-star recommendation. “Our son loves it!! He smiles at it whenever he looks at it. We named him Jeriff or “Riff Raff”. It’s the perfect thing for his nursery. My son’s dad thought it might the thing might be creepy in which case we would take it outside and sacrifice it to the gods, but it’s cute!! I’m sure he will be with us for years. Thank you!”  (Proof above)
