Want To Know More?

In 2012, Brunel University's Director of Product design Paul Turnock created a project with the Early Learning Centre to create a new original toy that would both entertain children and aid their development.

In one week, every design student imagined a completely new product from brief. Six students were chosen to take their ideas to design and development phase, and while there were many incredibly creative ideas, it was Industrial Design and Technology student Ben Alport's giraffe that won the votes.

Ben created the Drop and Pop Giraffe: a big, friendly giraffe that plays music when balls are popped into his head. The balls then pop out at random out of the giraffe's feet, which light up as they emerge. The Drop and Pop Giraffe inspires young imaginations while boosting reasoning skills as children try to guess which colour will pop out next, and from which leg. Posting and playing with the balls will keep little ones moving and is great exercise, while music and lights make play even more rewarding.

How to play:

Drop the balls into the slot in the giraffe's head for the music to play and wait for the balls to pop randomly out of the giraffe's feet. The feet light up as the balls pop and the giraffe plays four fun tunes to keep you going! See how fast you can pop the balls in, and try to guess which colour will pop out of which of the giraffe's feet. Can we name all of the colours? The play balls are soft but sturdy, and are also fun to roll, throw, crawl after and catch.

Suitable from 12 months.

Don't Forget...

We have lots more toys to suit every stage of your child's development.

  • 1 x giraffe

Just got mine out for the first time and don't know whether it's broken, it's seems rather mechanical and clunky. I thought I would just pop the ball in and it would instantly fall into whichever foot and then pop out . Does it sound faulty or is this th
