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.
Vulli, a company based in Rumilly in the Haute-Savoie region of France has created an extensive range of Sophie the Giraffe products to compliment the original toy and amuse and soothe babies from birth onwards.
The Double Ice Bite teething ring has 2 water filled rings which can be chilled in the fridge to help soothe sore gums. The soft and chewy rings also double as handles making it easy for baby to hold. Both rings also have a textured surface to gently massage baby’s gums, with the reassuring face of Sophie the Giraffe to comfort baby. Suitable from 3 months onwards.
