When you’re trying to make cartoon food that is appealing to children, you can’t forget to make a giraffe.
“It’s not something that you can just use on the food you make, you have to make sure that it’s not too big or too small or too cute,” said Kaya Atsuko, a teacher at the Japan Animation School.
“If it’s too big, it won’t be edible.”
Atsuka is one of the first animators in Japan to use the giraffe as the basis of a cartoon food.
“The giraffe was created for a purpose,” she said.
“We thought it would be interesting to see how the giraffes would react to different foods.”
In addition to being a cute animal, the girafalas are also the only creatures in the world to have a penis.
“I thought if I make a cartoon, I want to make the girabes happy, so that’s why I decided to put them in the cartoon food,” said Atsuto.
It took some time for her to make her giraffe-inspired food, but once she did, she says the reaction was so positive she wanted to share her experience with the world.
“Everyone who eats this food really likes it,” she added.
