Toys ‘R’ Us Giraffe Finds a New Home in New Jersey Children’s Hospital

The 16-foot tall statue of Geoffrey the Giraffe is being moved from the Toys ‘R’ Us headquarters in Wayne to a New Jersey children’s hospital, and #HipNJ has the scoop!

Joseph Malfitano, whose Malfitano Partners advised Toys ‘R’ Us in the sale of its assets, searched for a children’s hospital willing to take the statue in. Now, Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick has agreed to house Geoffrey.

The statue depicts Geoffrey smiling and raising his forelegs triumphantly. Now, he can continue to bring happiness into the lives of children.
