Schleich Wild Life Giraffe Calf
These most amazing hand painted animals have made their way to Collage Collage! We couldn't be happier with these creatures, great and small.
They are absolutely wonderful on their own, but translate beautifully to sensory play bins, the bath, the sandbox and more. You'll sure want to collect them all.
Baby giraffes are reared together with other young animals in a kind of kindergarten. A female giraffe from the herd acts as the "nursery school teacher" and looks after the calves while the other mothers search for food. If predators approach, she immediately raises the alarm. Then the female giraffes stand protectively in front of their babies and kick at the attackers. At around four months, they start to pluck and eat the small leaves from trees, but they still suckle from their mothers until they are ninth months.
Age Recommendation: 3+
