Yes, it MUST be real if they made a whole website about it.

I keep my petite lap giraffe in a pen next to my bonsai kittens. They all love ManBeef.

Should someone tell them about Bonsai Kitties?

I thought the fact that the PLG's diet is bonsai tree leaves (according to the website) was a nice touch.

We tried to have a petite lap giraffe but it didn't get along with our house hippo.

The first commercial, where he kisses the giraffe, is funnier. The petite giraffe commercials are among very few that I will stop to watch when fast forwarding on TiVo, or look up from what I'm doing if I'm watching live.

If they were real, the giraffes would be really tempting.

This is one of those things that I kind of wish they were real. I love giraffes. And the idea of a teeny-tiny one just makes me melt.

I know PA! I'd be worried about their spindly little necks and legs being awfully breakable though.

Why is the name petite lap giraffe - is there any other size which could be in your lap?

Maybe "petite" modifies lap, not giraffe. IE, a regular giraffe is a lap giraffe for the Jolly Green Giant. This giraffe is a lap giraffe for those with petite laps.
