This month the winning suggestion is one of the most strange looking and well know wild animals at all : The giraffe !!! cheers
Nóemi made the suggestion, but as she is not at home this week, she asked me to open the topic, - thankyou Nóemi  Very Happy

There are as many as 9 subspecies of giraffes. Most can be distinguished by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]  ( press esc to go to the wikipedia article), but most models are reticulated giraffes, as they are the easiest to paint, I suppose  alien

Let me start by showing my very first giraffe-model.... or rather one similar.
Reisler made the giraffe and the calf in 1955, and I probably got one in 1957. Her name was Ellen  Laughing
But many years later, my nieces got hold of my beloved collection, and Ellen disappeared  Crying or Very sad
Well, there are other Ellens around, and these two show some pf the variety in paintwork. The hand painted one is probably the oldest one :

The Reisler Giraffe calf was also made in 1955, but Ellen did not get a calf untill a couple of years later, - it is the one to the right in the photo beneath :

Fantastic figures Susanne!

If I can dig them out, I'll put up some photos of my favorite Giraffes: The recent CollectA and the recent Papo. Someone will hopefully put up photos of the Noah's Pals too. I don't own those, but I think they're nice Giraffes.

Lovely giraffes.
But does anyone have some side to side pictures involving different brands?
You know....Like Bullyland vs Papo vs Schleich vs Collecta vs Mojo?
It would give a nice overview of size, quality and charm.
