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

When you purchase from Amazon.co.uk directly you can be sure the item is genuine. We are a certified seller of 100 per cent genuine Sophie products. Sourced directly from Vulli.

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.

This includes individually hand painting each giraffe meaning that no two Sophies are exactly the same.

If purchased in a gift box there is a blue card inside which may sometimes rub off onto sophies head, you can remove this by simply wiping the head of Sophie

Made from 100 per cent natural rubber 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. Over time the paint may wear off Sophie as baby plays - especially if she is chewed lots or harsh chemical wipes are used on her.

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 nine out of 10 new-born babies are given their own Sophie la giraffe.

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

For the last 2+ years Sophie has been manufactured with a batch number on the leg. Prior to this it was possible to buy a Sophie with no batch number, so if she is missing one this does not mean it is a fake.

The batch numbering method has changed across time as manufacturing methods improve - originally batch numbers were part of the mold so would feel raised on the leg of the toy. Currently they are laser etched and so are very easy to miss - it's very, very faint but is there if you have a close look. This is done, so it does not spoil the aesthetics of the toy, but is there for identification.

1 x Sophie the Giraffe Teether

Colour Name: Blister Pack (2012 Version)
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! Sophie is made of 100% natural rubber and so is completely safe for your baby to chew and put in their mouths although please note that she can't be sterilised and so we use sterilising wipes on her. Both of my little ones love how easy she is to hold and squeak. A brilliant toy that has been around for many years and I think will probably be around for many many more.

EDIT 30/01/2016:-
After the massive success of Sophie with my two little ones (my daughter's Sophie is still out and about although my son's was packed away recently when he turned 3), I have just bought another one for my new baby niece in the new updated packaging and I have been told by Mum that she is already following it with her eyes when Sophie is squeezed and squeaked and I am sure she will love her as much as my two little ones loved their Sophie's.

After seeing this rated as the best teether in a baby magazine I thought I'd give it a try. It is more expensive than other teethers (my husband was horrified when I confessed to the cost) but my son will not use any others and loved Sophie from day one. She comes everywhere with us. I did make the mistake of putting it in the sterisliser (wanted it to be clean before he put is in his mouth) and it hasn't squeaked since!

When I was pregnant, I promised myself "I won't buy into this whole Sophie La Girafe thing". Well, I broke that promise.

My baby is just hitting his for month old mark, and is going through some serious teething sessions. You know how it goes, drool everywhere, constant whining, everything needs to go in the mouth - hands, hair, toys, dummies - you name it. And nothing does the job. I have teething rings, baby keys, toys with teething accessories, silicone teething baby dummy clips. All of it. But because he doesn't quite have the motor skills yet, I have noticed he prefers items with a long, straight grabbing option. Like his wooden toy rattle (which, unfortunately isn't a great teething toy, as it doesn't fit in his mouth; along with him quite comically bonking himself on the head with it).

So I searched high, and I searched low. I searched the distant areas of internet shops to try and find a teething rattle like toy. That was soft, entertaining, and with a long handle for my son's easy grip.

And let me tell you, I couldn't find anything. So I bit myself, and found myself looking at Sophie The Giraffe. What is so magical about this toy? It's just a bloody rubber giraffe, for thirteen quid! But, hearing my baby struggle in the background with his fist in his mouth, I swallowed my pride and bought Sophie.

Sophie arrived to us the next day. Nicely wrapped up in her little gift box. I took her out of her little travel case and introduced her to my baby. His eyes instantly went to her. And after a short while, he figured out that he can rather easily get a good grip on her, and that yes - she fits in his mouth. I now had one happy baby gnawing on Sophie's face while she worked her magic.

What is it about this toy that children love?

Purchased this product for my little girl as was recommended. However item arrived and did not look right! I read the 1* reviews and could not believe what I saw! People were saying that these are fakes and can be dangerous!

I ordered another one from a well know childrens store and the difference is unbelievable!!!

Please do not risk this product. just pay a little extra for the proper item

I am currently in contact with Amazon as I can not believe that they would sell these death traps and asking for a full refund.

Of all the teething toys/aids we've tried with either child, Sophie wins hands down every time. I think we're on about Sophie number six or seven following loss or just plain wear. Not quite sure what it is about this particular product, but kids just seem to love gnawing on it. When our first child began teething, we were recommended it unreservedly and I'm quite happy to do the same for other parents. Seems quite expensive compared to other products, but believe me, it's well worth the money.

This tiny little giraffe has stopped many a screaming fit with my 5 month old. H e started teething at 4 months and this was recommended by a French friend who says all French baby's get one. I was sceptical but within minutes of giving it to him he was happily chewing away for hours at a time.

We tried all the usual remedies and gels but this is a drug free way to help him teethe and he loves to play with Sophie even when his teeth are not hurting him. Overall this is a must buy for any parent. Yes its more expensive than a teethin ring but the quality is a lot better and it will last forever.
