Buying Guide

So, what are the perks of owning a tall giraffe statue? For starters, it makes your backyard look like a piece of the African bush. The next time you crave some Masai action, just head out of the house with your painted face and a spear in hand. Tip: The Giraffe can always get some of their less tall ungulate siblings for company to make the bush come alive.

If kept indoors, it adds a colonial touch to your home décor. The spindly legs, the long neck and the wonderful colored coat, will pop out.

Secondly, your kids will love it. Why, they can even name it. And as a bonus, you can freak your neighbor out. Imagine waking up one morning to discover that there’s a giraffe peeping into their home. (Don’t blame us for this.)

But buying tall Giraffe statues is not as simple as it seems. There’s a boatload of factors to consider. Here are some of them.

The average height of a male giraffe is 16 feet. There’s no way you have a ceiling that high. Not unless you live in an exotic Irish castle. Thankfully, tall giraffe statues are a little smaller with the height averaging between 7-12 feet.

Nevertheless, measure the space where you intend to place it. You also want to measure the width of the entrance to the room to ensure that you don’t end up with a giraffe that got stuck in the doorway.

Most people keep it in the living room as an accent piece. But you can also place it next to the stairs or in the hallway. If you are crunched for space, then consider buying a sitting baby giraffe statue instead. These are also available in pairs by the way.

You don’t have to worry about the height if you are keeping it outdoors though.

Tall giraffe statues are typically made of softwood. That’s because most of these are handcrafted by artisans in different parts of the world. And softwood is easier to work with. It’s lightweight too. However, wood is not the best of materials for outdoor use. You’d have to treat and seal it every now and then.

Plastic and composite statues are lightweight, all-weather resistant and easy on the pockets. These are perfect for outdoor use as well as for use in a household with kids. However, plastic statues are mass produced and some might argue that they lack the authenticity that comes with handcrafted replicas.

Metal statues are rare. But not uncommon. These are incredibly heavy and everything, from the delivery to installation will require professional assistance.

A statue with a pedestal base tends to be more stable as compared to a statue where the feet of the giraffe touch the ground. When placing the statue outdoors, always place it on level ground. This reduces the risk of it tipping over if a child accidentally bumps into it. You can also consider staking it to the ground or adding some weight to the base to prevent a strong gust of wind from tipping it over.

The giraffe has one of the most beautiful coats in the natural world. So, it would be an obvious choice to pick a giraffe statue in its natural colors. But that’s by far, not the only option.

You can get tall giraffe statues in a wide range of colors. Kids love statues in striking colors. Metal statues, especially bronze and copper look stunning with the finish and the patina. You can also pick a statue that matches the dominant colors in your home décor.
