A Customer's tale about Sophie the Giraffe

We are so pleased with Sophie the Giraffe and just don't know what we ever did without her. Sophie has become all our daughter Mazie wants to chew on, and with the tiny limbs and soft material of Sophie, she is so easy for her to latch onto. Mazie absolutely LOVES this toy. She laughs and giggles each time she makes the little Giraffe squeak - it's a joy to watch her constantly smile at it. Such a simple thing, yet little Sophie has quickly become one of our daughter's favorite toys since she was 3 months old. We finally purchased a second Sophie to live in my purse, and in a moment's notice, I can pull her out as a wonderful distraction for my now 23 month old. Sophie the Giraffe can hold her attention for an unbelievable amount of time. We're so pleased to have found such a perfect toy.

Sophie the Giraffe Rubber Toy is a timeless creation.

It's not very often you learn of a classic toy such as Sophie the Giraffe. This rubber teething toy requires 14 manual steps to take her through to completion - all preformed by hand. For a high production toy, it's quite amazing that this little giraffe is still handmade in the French Alps, just as she has been since 1961. With her natural rubber and non-toxic, food grade paint, Sophie the Giraffe has been safely cuddled for over 40 years! She truly is a French national treasure, stealing the hearts of parents and babies around the globe.

Sophie the Giraffe complies with European toy safety requirements, as well as the US safety requirements of ASTM F-963. For ages newborn and older, Sophie the Giraffe has been loving and amusing children for generations.

Every baby loves Sophie the Giraffe

Sophie the Giraffe has recently received more public attention with her "appearance" in the Globe & Mail (Canada). Not only popular for her wonderful non-toxic, baby-safe nature, Sophie is simply a joyful little creature that any baby would be thrilled to have. Babies across Canada are loving this soothing little friend!

"This toy is like candy for Babies" by Shawna Wagman (excerpts from special to Globe & Mail)

Her skinny neck has been clasped in the chubby, slippery fists of French babies since 1961. Her bumpy head and flexible feet have soothed millions of sore little gums. You might say she's become Hollywood's most homely It Girl. She's a 17-centimetre rubber giraffe named Sophie. And she's coming to a drooling Canadian kid near you...

...Aside from making a happy little squeak when squeezed, the spotted giraffe does little more than stare blankly, smile sweetly and smell faintly of vanilla. So what makes Sophie such a phenomenon?

Entrepreneurial mom Jane Wood says part of the appeal is its retro look. She was living in Britain when she first met Sophie. Her fourth child got it as a gift from friends who were visiting France, where, she discovered, the toy is legendary. "Over there, it's a standard thing," Wood says. "If you have a baby, you have a Sophie."

  1. Great alternative for teething Review by Nicole
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    We got this as a gift and my daughter didn't pay much attention to it when we first got it. However, now that she is a little older and her 2 yr molars are coming in, she has started chewing on things again, and it is nice to be able to give her Sophie the Giraffe to chew on instead of the other, less appropriate, things she tries to chew, like books, etc. However, we try to refer to the toy as only "Giraffe" because she has a cousin named Sophie and if we say, go get Sophie to chew on, she looks at us a little strangely! :) (Posted on 1/2/11)

  2. Best teething toy Review by Cassandra
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    Over $20, but well worth it. My son loves his Sophie. Whenever he grinds his teeth, we give him Sophie and he goes to town chewing her legs, horns, neck, etc. It is great to have so many places to chew. She is easy to clean, unlike some of the cloth variations of teethers. (Posted on 1/2/11)

  3. Great teething toy! Review by Amanda
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    Our son started teething at 3 months and the hard, cold teething rings did not work for him. We received this toy as a gift and it is just fabulous as a teether. It's soft and flexible enough for him to manipulate on his own, and because of the thin legs and neck he was able to get his little hands around it and hold it himself. He just loves his Sophie - while it's quite pricey, I now understand why it's so popular! A great gift for someone or as an addition to your own infant's toy box. (Posted on 1/4/11)

  4. Daughter loved it Review by Mariko
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    My daughter loved this toy as soon as I took it out of the packaging. It is easy for her to hold and a nice change from all her wooden teethers. At first I thought it was a bit expensive but it is worth it because she loves it so much. The only thing that slightly bothered me is that b/c it is a squeaky toy so if put in a bath with the baby it will take in water which is usually not a problem but b/c of where the hole is it is difficult to get the water out so the toy leaks for a while after wards. So as long as you don't put it in the bath it is a perfect toy. (Posted on 1/1/11)

  7. The perfect baby gift! Review by CINDY
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    My little guy is 6 months old and he just got this for Christmas. This is by far his favourite teething toy. He can manipulate it easily even with developing motor skills, and it is lightweight in his hands. He chews on the ears and legs and just plain loves it! It is more than worth the cost - just make sure your doggie doesn't steal it! It does squeak and so my Mom's dog was eying it. :P (Posted on 1/3/11)

    My little guy started to teeth at 2.5 months and cut his first tooth at 3 months - Sophie was a lifesaver! her legs were small enough to fit into his mouth easily at his age. I always buy her as a baby shower gift. :) (Posted on 1/4/11)
