This was an impulse buy, we have all been there, what got me was the reviews and the fact that my baby girl was teething and I just wanted something that she could really chomp on. Sophie is the winner. She has a cute face, she is french, and she squeaks, what more could you want. Oh and I read some reviews about the legs being choking hazards and think this is a bit ridiculous; first, use your own judgement as to whether your baby is old enough and strong enough to pull a toy out of their mouths if they gag; second, don’t confuse gagging and choking. The gag reflex is a good thing and my baby girl gags on her own fingers and hands much more than Sophie. I like Sophie’s spots and I like that she is made out of natural rubber that has a great familiar smell and is soft to touch. Great teether. Chomp, Chomp, Squeak, Squeak.
My four month old is obsessed with Sophie. She can’t get enough of it. It is easy for her to hold and bring to her mouth. She just started to teeth and Sophie appears to give her some relief. She also loves the “squeak” sound it makes and is able to make it squeak all by herself. I love that it is easy to wash, small, and not cutesy or fussy. Although it is more expensive than other toys, it is worth it. I highly recommend this item.
Since May, 1961, babies around the world have loved being in the company of a smooth rubbery friend named Sophie. She’s brought joy, and relief, to them for almost 50 years. Teething babies love the smooth, silky feeling of Sophie, and parents know that Sophie’s safe and easy for their baby to hold. The nubs along Sophie the Giraffe’s head and neck feel great for teething babies mouths which is part of the reason they love Sophie the Giraffe so much!

I bought this for my baby boy and he still loves it at 11 months. Now it is not so much for “teething” but for playing. It has the best sound when squeezed and not at all annoying. Sophie feels so soft. For the longest time, he preferred to hold her upside down and “play” and finger the legs and hooves. I could just see in his eyes how he studied the shapes and “dots” on her body and the features of her face. I NEVER had any problem with the concern that some reviews had for choking on the legs. Even though it starts out as a teether, Sophie grows to be a part of the family!
