What reviewers didn't like

I would not suggest this toy until they are about a couple of years old. Any younger than they may end up freaking out with this inside their area.
While the stuffed toys are big enough to tempt children to ride them, they aren’t meant to be rocking horses. The manufacturer expressed that the stuffed toy is not intended to hold a kid’s weight. Some buyers reported that the giraffe did not hold up under the strain of rough play.
It can be a little hard for children under 2 to play with. Considering its heavy weight, it is best left for children who understand not to pull it on top of themselves.
