Giant Stuffed Animals Go On Safari Giraffe

Love giant stuffed animals? So do we! Melissa & Doug carries dozens of lifelike and lovable stuffed animals, including these Safari Plush Animals: Giraffe, Tiger, Lion, White Tiger, Elephant, Zebra, Hippopotamus, and Cheetah. Many of these realistic stuffed animals have a sturdy wire frame underneath, covered with super-soft plush!

Here’s a fun way to play with our Safari themed Stuffed Animals-

Have a parent set up these giant plush animals throughout the house and you’re on an instant stuffed animals safari! Start with a “safari guidebook” that you create. In your guidebook draw each of these animals and write something about where they might be found, for example, near water, in a tree, etc. Then, take your guidebook with you on your stuffed animals safari, checking off each animal as you find it!

While on safari, use your binoculars to find the animals as you slowly make your way through heavy brush and rough terrain. Whoa, it’s a baby elephant and over there and a giraffe by the couch! Keep looking until you find them all! It’s such fun checking room to room and then finding that last animal!
