Sophie the Giraffe, or 'Sophie la Girafe' to give her her original French name, is an iconic baby teething toy that is loved by babies all over the world. In France, an amazing 9 out of 10 babies own a Sophie!

Who is Sophie?

Sophie the Giraffe was born in France on 25th May 1961 on St Sophie's Day, hence her name. Back in those days, the only animal toys for babies were in the shape of domesticated or companion animals, and so that is why her inventor, Monsieur Rampeau, came up with the ingenious idea of designing a baby toy in the shape of a giraffe. An exotic wildlife figure would be the first on the market, and the shape of this animal would be perfect for a baby to grasp and chew on.

And he was right - babies loved her size, texture, shape, and the little squeak she makes when she is pressed. Sophie the Giraffe looks exactly the same today as when she first went into production on Thursday 25th May 1961. She was also an immediate success with parents, who soon recognised the benefits of this little giraffe. Not only did she stimulate the child's senses, but she also helped to soothe teething gums.

Her fame spread by simple word of mouth, and Sophie quickly became a 'must have' in baby's essentials.

Sophie the Giraffe is traditionally made in the French Alps by toy company Vulli, in a manufacturing process that involves more than 14 manual operations. She is made from 100% natural rubber, derived from the sap of the Hevea tree. Her flexible, renewable, natural materials and non-toxic paint mean that she is a safe and natural teething toy for your little one.

We love Sophie's retro style and special charm, and are delighted to be able to stock her for a new generation of babies to enjoy.
