" This model represents a miniature of the big giraffe. It is really similar to it but it has got more spots on his body. Its look is curious and it is walking with its mother. "

1940 catalogue description

" A baby Giraffe is able to trot by the side of its parent three days after birth. The speed and endurance of this animal is considerable. When running the tail is carried twisted in a corkscrew-like manner over the back and the neck inclined somewhat forward. "
