    Born in France in 1961. Still the same even after more than 50 years!

    Designed to stimulate the senses and soothe teething pains, Sophie the Giraffe is a true icon, loved by millions of children (and parents!) around the world! Sophie the Giraffe is Baby’s first toy that stimulates each of the five senses.

    Made from 100 per cent natural rubber (Phthalate-free) derived from the sap of the Hevea tree, Sophie’s flexible, renewable, natural materials and non-toxic food grade paint mean she is a safe and natural teething toy for your little one.

    Sophie is still produced traditionally in France using a closely guarded process involving 14 manual operations.

    Since her birth in 1961, Sophie the Giraffe has wowed over 50 million babies (and parents) worldwide with her natural beauty and charm, and her retro style has ensured that she has remained a “must have” baby toy.

    This version contains an Original Sophie la girafe® supplied in a modern looking ‘Fresh Touch’ gift box. Contained within is also a card for you to personalise.

    Did you know in France 9/10 newborn babies are given a Sophie La Giraffe?

    Here's why:

    SIGHT: At the age of 3 months a baby's eyesight is still limited and they can only make out stark contrasts. The dark and contrasting attention-catching spots all over Sophie the Giraffe's body provide visual stimulation.

    HEARING: Her squeaker keeps baby amused, stimulates hearing and then later, helps baby to understand the link between cause and effect.

    TASTE: Sophie the Giraffe is made of 100% natural rubber and food paint, and is completely safe and natural to chew. Her soft texture and numerous chewable parts (ears, horns, legs) make her perfect for soothing baby's sore gums when teething.

    TOUCH: Touch is the first means baby has of communicating with the outside world. Sophie the Giraffe's soft feel which warms to the touch is just like mummy's skin, stimulating soothing physiological and emotional responses that soothe baby.

    SMELL: The singular scent of natural rubber (from the Hevea tree) makes Sophie the Giraffe very special and easy for your child to identify amongst all his other toys.

    EASY TO GRIP: Sophie the Giraffe's shape and 18cm size are perfect for baby's small hands. She is very light and her long legs and neck are easy for baby to grip, even from his earliest days.

    Once upon a time

    ... the simple story of a girafe borned on May 25th in the year 1961, Saint Sophie's day. In those days, the only animal toys available were farm animals and pet figures ... That is why one day in France, a certain Monsieur RAMPEAU, who was an expert in transforming the sap from the HEVEA tree using the rotational moulding of rubber as a toy-making concept, came up with the idea of designing a giraffe. Such an exotic wildlife figure would be a first on the market, and its size and shape would be ideal for a baby's small hand to grasp. Sophie la girafe, who looked exactly the same than she does today, went into production on a Thursday, May 25th, hence her name. She was an immediate success. Young mothers immediately recognized that she was a must for their children... When the first signs of teething appear, Sophie la girafe helps babies stop crying! By simple word of mouth, the little giraffe's fame spread. From then on in Europe, generations upon generations of children were to love hearing Sophie squeak whenever they pressed her tummy or head! VULLI, a company based in Rumilly in the Haute-Savoie region of France has continued to keep the highly guarded secret of how this wonder toy is made. To this day, Sophie la girafe is still "traditionally" produced, a process that involves more than 14 manual operations. She is made from 100% natural rubber derived from the latex of the Hevea tree
