It’s October 2012 and we’re getting close to Christmas and the holiday season. I still can’t believe how many emails and comments we receive about the Sophie the giraffe recall from back in 2010. Sophie is manufactured by Vulli, a French company who’s main product is Continue reading →
Her *favorite* toy!! By: Joanne Pasternack (Mountain View, CA)
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.

Sophie the endearing rubber friend
By Lemur Nimbley (Miami, FL)
My four month old baby loves this giraffe! I tried other teethers that were more standard, and he couldn’t stand them. Ring teethers were too huge in all areas to get into his mouth at all, and the plastic was too hard and brittle and seemed to cause him pain.
My 5 month old daughter LOVES her Sophie the Giraffe toy! This toy is absolutely wonderful in every way. Sophie is made of soft rubber and makes a pleasant-sounding squeak whenever any part of her body is squeezed, so even a young baby can elicit a reaction from the toy with minimal effort.
I don’t know what it is about Sophie, but whenever my daughter plays with her, she gets very vocal and talkative.
I saw another review which referred to this toy as “a glorified dog toy”. That reviewer is mistaken, and simply doesn’t realize the value of this toy.
- Sophie’s body, while soft, has several areas of thicker rubber (the nubs on her head, her ears, and her feet) which are perfect for teething babies to gnaw on for relief.
- Sophie’s contrasting colors (spots) are visually stimulating to a baby.
- She is easy to grip given her long, thin neck.
- This toy is made of 100% natural rubber and uses food-grade paint (SAFE!).
- This is a quality baby toy which will last for many years.
I would much rather pay $20 for a safe, engaging toy for my baby, than pay $5 for some piece of junk with lead paint.

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!
