Jack is made with organic cotton fabric. Many parents prefer organic materials for teething baby because there are no chemical pesticides used in growing the cotton, and eco-friendly processing is used. This teether is all natural and BPA free! (a huge advantage over traditional plastic teethers)
All of my Teething Giraffes are made using pre-washed 100% cotton fabric and they are stuffed using Eco-friendly Fiberfill. The stuffing is hypo-allergenic polyfiber.
Every giraffe is stuffed as tight as I can get it. It makes for a firm toy for your little one to cut teeth on. If your baby likes something cold, you can dip the head of your giraffe in water and stick it in the freezer for a bit! (thanks for this tip to my genius sister!)
These giraffes were designed for teething babies, but they are also a favorite toy for toddlers and pre-schoolers!
The Teething Giraffe is approximately 8" tall, 3" long and 1.5" wide. They are each handmade with love, so sizing may vary slightly. Fabric pattern placement may vary from the photo.
I recommend spot cleaning or hand washing only because the neck tends to crease if the giraffes are put in the washer and dryer. If you don't mind that (and frankly, baby using the giraffe will cause that too!) then they are fine for the washer and dryer. I washed my son's first giraffe in the washer and dryer all the time.
I came up with the Star Safari Teething Giraffe after receiving something similar for our baby from friends. My little one loved it, but so did my 3-year-old niece! When we asked where we could get another one, our friends told us that it had been made by their grandmother who had passed away. I figured out how I could make one with a few aesthetic changes and before my niece left to go home we had a herd of giraffes in the house!
