PostSubject: My first giraffe :)   Sun Jun 12, 2011 10:03 pm

Today I added the first giraffe to my collection. It is the male Schleich. I don't know who makes the best giraffe (I bet Martin knows!), but this guy caught my eye. Usually I think the legs are too thick on them, but this one looks very nice!





His name is Randy. Very Happy

Thanks for letting me share!

Congratulations Kristie! Randy is a very nice long necked guy! :)
About the best giraffe it is not consensual as with the Papo tiger! Some goes for Schleich, some for Papo and even some for CollectA! From pictures the best giraffe I know is the Harriet's giraffe! But from brands I like the sculpting of the Mojo, in general the CollectA reticulated and I also have the Papo but this time I cannot tell you that the Papo is the best! I also had the female Schleich but is very similar with Mojo and the smaller elements are less delicated, even the painting is better in reticulation but not in math finnish! I also like a lot the sculpting from old Britains but only know it from pictures! Maybe more members can help you but one thing is sure, this is a nice figure! Very Happy

Oh Kristie... i looove this giraffe Wink But you are right about his legs... they are too short and little bit chubby. I think the best giraffes are from AAA (Harriet´s giraffe) and old Britains giraffe. Their details are just amazing... But personally I love the most retired Schleich giraffe bull from 2000! That figure is AMAZING! Wink

Thanks to everyone! I have not seen the CollectA giraffe, or perhaps I have but just don't remember. I will have to go see. I have seen Harriet's AAA and it is lovely! I also remember one that Martin repainted (yes?) that is quite beautiful!

Of course, giraffes have huge necks! :)
But I understand you once Im collecting foxes, if I had to choose only one fox surely a regular pose would be fun but having almost 20 and seeing for example 2011 foxes almost in the same pose it turns some boring! I'd also loved to have a fox shaking her head! cat

I bet you can get a fox to shake her head by blowing a hairdryer in her face!
