Vlad the Impaler linked to Toys R Us scandal

Adjab carries the curious tale of Geoffrey the Giraffe, the Toys R Us mascot. The assumption that the creator of the store’s US ads was also the genius behind the mascot has been challenged; someone else created a giraffe puppet with the same name, but then again how many names can you think of beginning with a soft G?
It’s hardly likely that this issue will kick off a dispute similar to the Who Created Mr Blobby wrangle, although Dave has pointed out that this could get serious because Geoffrey has strong filial links with Winnie the Pooh: they share the same middle name.
