Favorite Product! Sophie the Giraffe

You can't argue with a toy that has sold over 30 million pieces. Sophie the Giraffe has been around since 1961 when Monsieur Rampeau in France came up with the idea to make a soft rubber teething toy in the shape of an easy to grasp giraffe.

SOPHIE is still “traditionally” produced to this day, a process that involves more than 14 manual operations. She is made from 100% natural rubber derived from the sap of the Hevea Tree.

Sophie the Giraffe is made of 100% natural rubber and food paint, and is completely safe to chew, just like a feeding bottle teat. Her soft texture and numerous chewable parts (ears, horns, legs), make her perfect for soothing baby’s sore gums during teething.

She ain't cheap at about $20 a pop and you know you are going to lose her more than once but the kids seem to love her! She would make a great shower gift.
