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... The Sophie the Giraffe Soft Toy is perfect for keeping baby company all day and night. The soft fabric is great to cuddle and a tinkling bell sounds when baby shakes Sophie.

The rubber giraffe is excellent, very easy for a baby to hold and the legs bend to get in at the back teeth, My daughter loves it. The soft giraffe (Bophie in our house) is a nice size for a baby and stands up unaided. A lovely gift. the vendor ships to Ireland too.

I bought this Sophie giraffe to replace the rubber one as my grandaughter loved it so much it was beginning to split. Unfortunatly she does not seem interested in it! I like it though.
