We love, love, love Sophie. She is the sweetest giraffe in the whole wide world! – FREDERICK & SOPHIE
Bonjour Sophie! Since her birth in 1961, Sophie la girafe has been a first and favorite teething toy for babies around the word. Stimulating each of a baby’s five senses, Sophie is hand-made in France from 100% natural rubber and is phthalates and BPA-free. Sophie’s dark and contrasting spots are hand-painted with food-grade dye and provide visual stimulation. Sophie’s squeaker stimulates hearing, and helps a baby understand the link between cause and effect. Sophie’s soft texture and numerous chewable parts (ears, horns, legs) are perfect for soothing sore gums during teething. Sophie’s long legs and neck are easy for little hands to grip. The pleasant scent of natural Hevea rubber makes Sophie easy to identify amid all other toys.
Recommended for kids ages 0 years old and up.
Dimensions: H: ca. 18cm
Material: 100% natural Hevea rubber. The rubber used by Vulli to create Sophie la girafe comes exclusively from the sap of Hevea trees growing in Malaysia. It is natural, soft, elastic, waterproof, insulating and pleasant to the smell and touch.
Each Sophie is hand painted with food-grade dye.
All Sophie la girafe products carry the European Union CE label and are made according to the strict European Toy Safety Directive.
Care Instructions: Under normal use of Sophie la girafe and in accordance with packaging instructions, cleaning the toy’s surface using a cloth moistened with soapy water is all that is needed. Please note that Sophie’s squeaker leaves a hole on the giraffe’s surface. Please ensure that water does not enter the product during cleaning. Please refrain from rinsing or submerging Sophie la girafe. We do not recommend sterilizing Sophie la girafe. Known sterilization methods require partial or full immersion of the product in a sterilizing solution (boiling water or water with a sterilization tablet). Please do not wash the toy in the dishwasher. It is important to remember that this Sophie la girafe teething toy is not a bath toy. Should water enter the product, there is a risk of damage to the squeaker and the product itself. Please see our Sophie la girafe bath gift set for bath toys.
Hand-made and hand-painted with Love in France.
Once upon a time in 1961…Monsieur Rampeau, an expert in transforming natural rubber made from the sap of the Hevea tree into toys, came up with the idea of designing a wildlife figure. On Saint Sophie’s day a little giraffe was born. Sophie la girafe was an immediate success with parents recognizing the fact that when their babies started teething, Sophie helped! Based in Rumilly, France, Vulli continues to cultivate Hevea rubber tree plantations in Malaysia and perform the 14 manual steps needed to create Sophie la girafe, conducting internal quality control tests during each single step. Each Sophie la girafe carries a batch number, enabling full product traceability (production date and relevant laboratory analysis). Each number corresponds to a batch tested in a recognized laboratory and certifies its compliance with the strictest current European and worldwide standards.
