Sophie the Giraffe Authorized Dealer-- Sophie the Giraffe products sold by Amazon.co.uk are genuine and come from Vulli in France where the manufacturer is based. Sophie the Giraffe is traditionally produced and hand painted in small batches--therefore no two Sophie’s are the same. This means that Sophie’s details, size, colour and spots may vary. It is normal for Sophie’s colour to fade over time due to chewing and cleaning as the colouring is food grade paint--for the safety of your child.

Product Description

Product Description

Once upon a time, a simple story... The little giraffe was born on 25th May in year 1961...Saint Sophie's day. 

In those days, the only animal toys available were farm animals or pet figures... 

That is why one day in France a certain Monsieur Rampeau, who was an expert in transforming 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 hands to grasp. 

Sophie the Giraffe, who looked exactly the same then as she does today, went into production on Thursday 25th May. 

She was an immediate success. Sophie quickly became a “must have” in baby’s essentials. Designed to stimulate the senses and soothe teething gums, parents recognised right away the benefits of this little giraffe for their child. 

By simple word of mouth, the little giraffe's fame spread. 

From then on in Europe, generation upon generation 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 jealously guarded secret of how this wonder toy is made. Sophie the Giraffe is still "traditionally" produced to this day, a process that involves more than 14 manual operations. 

Made from 100% natural rubber derived from the sap of the Hevea tree, Sophie’s flexible, renewable, natural materials and non-toxic paint mean she is a safe and natural teething toy for your little one. 

Since her creation 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 fashionable for over 50 years. 

In France 9 out of 10 newborn babies are given their own Sophie la girafe. 

Still the same, even after more than 50 years…she hasn’t dated in the slightest...

I bought this for my baby daughter as my son was given one as a gift when he was born and even though he is a toddler now it is still one of his favourite and well used toys and anytime the baby would go to play with it he would get very possessive and snatch it back from her so now she has her own and there are no 'arguments'. I don't know what it is about this toy but babies love it and it is a firm favourite with both of my children. This one was gift boxed and I have kept the box in her memories box so that when she grows too old for Sophie I can pack it away for her as I will be doing with my son's Sophie too. When my son was little we literally couldn't go out of the house anywhere unless we had Sophie with us and there was quite a few occasions where we would be out shopping or somewhere and have to manically back track to search for a dropped Sophie! A brilliant toy that has been around for many years and I think will probably be around for many many more.

I dont normally leave feedback but felt the need too with this product.
Having a large tribe (4 children aged 11-14weeks) ive tried many teething products. This one I head about through a friend and thought nothing much of it until my daughter started to teeth last week. My partner had a fit when I told him how much Sophie was but after reading reviews we tried her anyway.
She only arrived this morning but is an instant hit with my 14week old.. Shes easy to hold and my daughter loves to gum her ears to death! Sophie is everything the description says she is and is well worth the money for babies with poorly gums. I have also ordered a harness for her from Ebay so she doesnt go missing ;)

I must point out that I was about to buy the Sophie whom comes in the blister pack but she is apparently a fake so please steer clear of that one and pay abit extra for the real thing :)

I knew these existed but refused o buy on principle of being so expensive.
I bought various chew toys for my son, including gel filled tethers from boots, crinkle blankets, fake gel keys that you cool. Even Kelsie the Seahorse which i heard was very soft but my baby could seem to keep hold of any of these/wanted none to chew. he loved the crinkle blanket but couldn't get the rubber bits in his mouth. he always chose our fingers or his own.
he started to get sore knuckles on one hand where he obviously chewed them.

I came across a sophie at a friends hour and out of curiosity passed it to him. he immediately went for on of the legs and seemed to be able to old this one just fine. So I gave in and bought one.

delighted he seems to have taken to this one/ i think because the legs are so like adult fingers in size and shape. It is light but has some substance to it.

Sophie the giraffe is my grandaughters favourite friend,even though she's always chomping on her head or legs as she tests out her teeth! So when a friend's daughter had her baby I wanted the same for her-but Mothercare had sold out! Not wanting to wait I sourced my gift from Amazon instead.

At first I was a little hesitant about buying this teether for my 6 month old daughter,due to the price. But also every other teether I have purchased has really been a complete waste of time due to them being hard to handle but mainly that the plastic is just too hard&rough for sore gums.

Look No Further!!!

Sophie Giraffe really IS the answer.I ordered this product yesterday afteroon&it was already here first thing this morning!Even though my daughter has only had this teether a few hours i'm already prepared to say its one of the best baby products going!Its made from natural rubber so its super soft for baby delicate skin&sore gums.Its the perfect size&shape for little hands and its entertaining with its sqeaker! There really is no wonder this traditional toy has stood the test of time because its simple yet totally effective!My daughter Loves Sophie already!!
I brought the Gift Box version and on arrival i'm so glad i did!It came in at the same price as the toy on its own so i thought it seemed worth while. Sophie comes in a cute designed box,with a toy certificate(perfect for childerns scrap book!). Which i thought was a lovely idea. I WILL definately be recommending this to all my 'mummy' friends as The Sophie Giraffe Teether is worth every single Penny!

Having seen all the plastic rubbish that gets sold for teething and as passifiers i was after something different, enter Sophie!. Yes it looks, feels and sounds like a dogs play toy, but my daughter absolutley loves it and wont be seperated form it! Its soft and kind on her gums, made with non toxic rubber and paints. Everyone asks where we got it from and always comments on it when where out. Sometimes you come across something classic in design, a product which is simple and original but brilliant, this is it. A must have, along with tippitoes doorway bouncer! it cost a few quid, but its worth every penny.
