Sophie the Giraffe- a Little History About Everyone's Favourite Baby Toy

Sophie the Giraffe, a popular teething toy among children around the world. It is not often these days that toys have history. Sophie, however, is almost 50, and we are celebrating in store with a new window display and new products from the Sophie the Giraffe range.

A little bit of history…

France, May 1961: Sophie was born, and she hasn't changed a bit since then. Made from 100% natural rubber derived from the sap of the Hevea tree, Sophie's flexible, renewable, natural materials and non-toxic paint mean she is a safe and natural teething toy for your little one.

Sophie was an immediate success. Young mothers recognised that she was a must for their children… When the first signs of teething appear, Sophie the Giraffe helps babies soothe their gums.

To this day, Sophie the Giraffe is still "traditionally" produced, a process that involves more than 14 manual operations. Why a giraffe? In 1961 most toys were made to resemble farm animals, but Monsieur Rampeau had high hopes and wanted to create a more exotic figure. With over 50 million units sold, Sophie is the undisputed star for the very young. Sophie the Giraffe has become timeless and cross-generational.
