Real clever thinking here, using the TK articulated tractor cab unit as a self-contained animal transporter, The rear ramp lowers and there are a pair of giraffes inside. This was issued later on in a Daktari set in a sort of khaki and beige camo finish so if you come across one of those it is not necessarily a repaint.

The Giraffe transporter was first released in June 1964. The core range item is always red with a blue rear container. Most of them have spun hubs but some of the later ones have the more detailed cast hubs. They are fairly easy to find so values are not that high. Later releases with the cast hubs get a good premium though which is even better if it is in a window box.

This is a nice example complete with both giraffes, all that is missing is one mirror - and I broke that off cleaning it, bugger!
