A razor extension handle which allows those with limited mobility to shave theirs legs without bending down has been praised by pregnant women across the country.
The nifty gadget, called the ‘Giraffe,’ works by attaching to any razor – and it not only helps those with a burgeoning bump, but anyone struggling with a back or hip injury, too.
The product, which retails on Amazon for £39, has received a plethora of five star reviews and has even been dubbed an ‘ingenious gadget.’
‘I gifted this to my pregnant daughter and she says it’s amazing!’ enthused one fan, while another added: ‘I have been using it since my fifth month of pregnancy when I started to have mobility and flexibility issues.
‘I will keep using it even after delivery. I would definitely recommend it.’
The nifty gadget, called the Giraffe, allows women to shave their legs without bending over and has received over 200 reviews online
One fan was so delighted with the results that she insisted she will continue using it even after her pregnancy. She wrote: ‘I have been using it since my fifth month of pregnancy when I started to have mobility and flexibility issues. I will keep using it even after delivery!’
The product description reads: ‘Giraffe Bath & Body designed The Giraffe specifically to assist women who were unable to shave their legs due to limitations in flexibility and mobility.’
‘These limitations could stem from the increasing discomfort from symptoms associated with the second and third trimester of pregnancy, sports injuries, hip and knee surgery or a chronic medical condition such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, muscular dystrophy, and shoulder, neck or back pain.
And many expectant mothers took to the reviews section of Amazon to express their delight at the handy device.
‘Gave the Giraffe to my best friend who is pregnant. She absolutely loves it and said it was a huge help!’ wrote one, while another penned: ‘Awesome idea. My daughter used when pregnant and loved.’
The product features a head that changes to fit various razors, but at £39, the extension isn’t cheap
And it’s not just women who have praised the product, as one relieved man commented: ‘Pregnant wife loves it, which makes her happy, which makes me happy.’
Customers who are recovering from serious injuries and those who are disabled or suffering from mobility issues have also praised the innovation.
‘What a wonderful ingenious gadget,’ penned one. ‘Had my doubts whether it would live up to all the hype – but I was proved wrong. It does what it says it should.’
‘I have osteoarthritis in both knees and hips – and will soon have my first hip replacement. I know my giraffe will be invaluable then – as I will not be allowed to bend down.’

‘I find this product has made shaving a breeze,no more bending over in shower so no sore back after shaving. Highly recommend.’
A third commented: ‘After recently having a total hip replacement at a young age, this product has given me back my independence and dignity. Not to mention hair free legs. Simple to use, well made and fits my disposal razors.’
Others who commended the inventive product were those who suffer with serious injuries or medical conditions
