Sophie the Giraffe – Baby Teether


Sophie the Giraffe – world’s favourite baby toy! Sophie is now more than 58 years old and she is still made of 100% natural rubber and non-toxic food-grade paint. Being very flexible, Sophie is perfect for both front and back teeth and given her shape and size, Sophie is perfect for tiny hands – her long legs & slim neck are easy to grasp. Thanks to her lightness, she is also very easy to hold on to.

Both the natural rubber & the shape and look of Sophie help stimulate all five senses  – taste, sight, touch, smell, and sound.

The dark and contrasting spots all over Sophie the Giraffe’s body provide visual stimulation and make her easily recognisable to your little one. Sophie is also very soft to touch, stimulating both physiological and emotional soothing responses.

Sophie the Giraffe’s squeaker keeps your baby amused and helps your little one understand the link between cause and effect.

Because of the scent of the natural rubber from the Hevea tree, Sophie the Giraffe quickly becomes easily identifiable amid all the other toys.

Thanks to all of this Sophie quickly becomes a familiar and reassuring object and it is no wonder she has been such a popular teething toy for all these years.

Sophie the Giraffe went into production on Thursday May the 25th, 1961, on Saint Sophie’s Day. That makes her nearly 60 years old. Her creator, Monsieur Rampeu was an expert in transforming the latex from the HEVEA tree using the rotational moulding of rubber as a toy-making concept. He came up with the idea of designing a giraffe – such an exotic wildlife figure was a first of her kind on the market. Amazingly Sophie the Giraffe looks still exactly the same as she did all those years ago.

To this day, Sophie the Giraffe is still “traditionally” produced – the process involves more than 14 manual operations! She is made from 100% natural rubber derived from the latex of the Hevea tree. Due to her shape and size, Sophie the Giraffe is ideal for a baby’s small hand to grasp.
