I was provided a Mamas and Papas George Giraffe rocking animal at no cost to facilitate a review.
Thirty years ago, David and Luisa decided that what was currently on the market was just not good enough for their children, and Mamas & Papas was born. Now you can find everything from strollers and high chairs, to clothes and toys for your children from the Mamas & Papas brand that are chic and functional.
I was recently sent the Mamas & Papas George Giraffe Rocking Animal to review. I planned to take pictures of the set-up, but my husband took it out of the box and had it assembled before I could interrupt with a picture. You’ll need a screwdriver and about five minutes to attach the rocker legs, foot rest, and insert the batteries. It’s really pretty easy.
Once assembled, George Giraffe has three modes of play: play time, story time, and song time.
There are 2 ways your child can play with George Giraffe. The first and most obvious is by riding on him. I have two children (ages 13 months and 3 years) and they both love to rock on George. My son is even able to climb on and off of him already, all by himself.
The second way your child can play with George Giraffe is through his interactive, educational features. George comes with a removable bag that holds 4 items: a caterpillar, rainbow, apple, and ball.
George is able to recognize which item your child has put into his mouth. He will ask your child to find the caterpillar or the crunchy green apple. Once he or she puts it into George’s mouth, they are rewarded with a short song or story. My kids love to “feed” George!
George has a cute British accent and “wakes” with just the slightest touch from your child. After approximately a minute of non-play, he will turn himself back off. Now, as a parent, we all know that sometimes toys that make noise can sometimes, well, be annoying. This rocking giraffe has an on/off switch that is easy to reach when you just need some quiet time.
We are thrilled to have George in our lives. He is soft, whimsical, adorable, and great fun for my kids!
