Children love them! Parents love them! And now you can bring them home with you. Okay, what do I mean? Well, you may have seen our giraffe family ads for the Ark Encounter on TV, social media, or on a webpage. This family of animated giraffes—George, Gloria, Gracie, and Junior—are our mascots and have helped people get excited to visit the full-size Noah’s Ark in N. Kentucky.

For example, check out this short video we recently released:

And all four members of the giraffe family are now available as plush toys! These plush toys are popular with kids of all ages who love how cute and cuddly they are. The family is available in three different sizes, and you can order them all together as a pack or just bring home your favorite. Our production department worked hard to make these some of the best plush toys in the world! They really are fantastic.

Oh, and if you’re interested in joining the giraffe family by working at the Ark, we’re hiring humans—with open interviews October 21 and 28 at the NKU Grant County Center from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST, north of the Ark. On an open-interview day, you can apply for a job, be interviewed, and potentially get offered a position all in the same day!
