The So Pure Sophie the Giraffe by Vulli and 2012 Sophie The Giraffe Recall

Sophie the Giraffe Recall?

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

sophie the giraffe recall 2010

There has been a lot of mis-information about a Sophie The Giraffe teether recall and in particular to Toys R Us in Canada pulling Sophie the Giraffe Teether from its shelves.  As far as we know, Health Canada has never issued a recall on Sophie the Giraffe Teether, and as of January 8th 2011, Sophie the Giraffe Teether is available at Continue reading

Chomp Chomp

Chomp Chomp
By: R. Hogue (Green Bay, WI)

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.

Her *favorite* toy!!

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

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.

This Sophie teether is completely different. Continue reading

Don’t let the price deter you!

Don’t let the price deter you!, October 11, 2008

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.
