There would be very few parents who’ve never spied a cute, retro Sophie the Giraffe clenched in the chubby little hands of a sweet baby: it’s the must-have teether the world over. It’s even said that 9 out of 10 French newborns get their very own Sophie at birth!
Made from flexible, renewable, natural materials and non-toxic paint, Sophie the Giraffe is a safe and natural teething toy for your little one – and clearly also a very popular choice for conscientious parents.
Sophie! What is she good for?
Sophie the Giraffe is not only a teething ring with a makeover, she is actually created to stimulate all five of baby’s senses while offering a non-toxic option to chew on.
Sophie is lightweight, flexible, soft, and easy to hold so baby can grab and chomp her with ease. She is softly coloured and squeaks gently when chewed. Her contrasting coloured spots are a feast for baby’s eyes, and the smell of the natural Hevea rubber creates a soothing connection for small children.
Primarily a teether, Sophie has soft, smooth parts and nubbly, bumpy parts to soothe baby’s gums as they gnaw to relieve the pain of teeth coming through. Over the past 50 years, her popularity has grown so much that the Sophie range has expanded into other chew toys like the Sophie the Giraffe So'Pure Natural Teether (which also comes in a set with Sophie), Sophie cousin Fanfan the Fawn, and also a range of bath items: the Sophie the Giraffe So'Pure Bath Toy, the multi-coloured So'Pure Balls, Sophie Bath Cubes, and mini version Sophie the Giraffe Bath Toy.
Caring for Sophie
Sophie the Giraffe is easy to clean, requiring only a wipe down with a damp cloth and soapy water. She is made from 100% natural rubber derived from the sap of the Hevea tree, so she is phthalate-free and contains no vinyl (or PVC!). She is painted with non-toxic, food-grade paints that are safe for babies to put in their mouths and won’t come off with a wash.
For over 50 years, Sophie the Giraffe has been beloved by over 50 million babies and today, her popularity shows no signs of slowing down. More than ever, Sophie’s safe and eco-friendly features make her an essential part of raising your sweet baby!
