polar bears vs. artic giraffes

At Target, Simone was playing with some plastic animals in the toy department. It was polar bears vs. "arctic giraffes" as there were no seals in the animal bins. She had a baby polar bear and parents. She was quick to point out that it was a nice father bear and not a mean one. Then, the baby polar happily went hunting and killed arctic giraffes for each of it's parents and kept the baby giraffe for itself.

She mentioned the "niceness" of the father as the kids are a little disturbed at how unkind animal fathers often are. Polar bear dads kill their offspring, so it's a mom only show for those cubs. It was nice to switch to penguins as penguin dads are quite helpful. Emperor Penguin males are helpful anyway.
