When Melissa took walks with her baby, she streamed classical music and sounds of nature through her smartphone which she rested in the infant seat. While she knew the benefits of classical music for brain development, putting a cell phone in the carrier was not the best way to expose brain-building melodies to her preemie.

That is why one day in France, a certain Monsieur RAMPEAU, who was an expert in transforming latex from the HEVEA tree using the rotational molding of rubber as a toy-making concept, came up with the idea of designing a giraffe.
