A giraffe sleeps only about two hours per day. Just imagine how much I could get done!
And they are so loved – the world round. The number of visitors to websites featuring the imminent birth of a baby giraffe is just astounding. And, who can forget the unbelievable response to the baby toy ‘Sophie the Giraffe”? It was difficult to get your hands on one!
And, how can we forget the ubiquitious TOYSRUS mascot – Geoffrey the Giraffe? My grand-daughter can’t get enough of the terrific children’s book Giraffe’s Can’t Dance by Giles Andreae.
So you’ve got the message, right? We (and lots of others) love Giraffes. That’s why we have this lovely boy in our backyard. Peeking out from amidst our trees and flowers.
Our friendly Giraffe comes from Kenya of recycled metal sculpture created in Nairobi. Moses and his crew of incredible metal artisans create the most realistic animal sculptures you can believe. All from materials like recycled oil drums, scrapped engine parts and discarded cutlery.
These beautiful and environmentally sound sculptures come in all sorts of animals and all sorts of sizes. Birds, lions, giraffes, impalas – all suitable for either outdoor (home and garden) or indoor home décor.
So, you can “do your bit” for the environment AND make everyone smile by introducing one of our recycled metal animal friends to your home.

Now, let’s learn some more about Giraffes!
At an average height of around 5 m (16-18 ft.), the giraffe is the tallest land animal in the world.
Characterized by its long legs, long neck, and distinctive spotted pattern, many people first believed the giraffe was a cross between a leopard and a camel, which is reflected in its scientific name, Giraffa camelopardalis.
