Sophie the Giraffe is 50!

By Kate |

Happy Birthday, Sophie! The iconic teething toy beloved by babies around the world is celebrating 50 years of cuteness. Sophie the Giraffe is one of my favorite new baby gifts to give. I know how much my daughter enjoyed her Sophie and love knowing other babies will enjoy her, too.

Sophie delights all your child’s senses.

  • Sight: The dark and contrasting spots all over Sophie the Giraffe’s body provide visual stimulation and make her easily recognizable to baby. She soon becomes a familiar and reassuring object.
  • Hearing: Her squeaker keeps baby amused and stimulates his hearings.
  • Taste: Sophie the Giraffe is very flexible and has lots of parts for baby to chew like ears, horns, legs. She is perfect for soothing baby’s sore gum when teething and is completely safe. Made of 100% natural rubber and food paint.
  • Touch: Sophie the Giraffe is perfect for baby’s small hands. She is very light and her long legs and neck are easy for baby to grip. She is very soft to touch, stimulating soothing physiological and emotional responses.
  • Smell: The singular scent of natural rubber makes Sophie the Giraffe very special and easy for your child to identify.

Turns out Sophie is also quite generous, her handles managed to round up 25 Sophie teethers to be included in our Pampers Miracle Mission care packages. We are so grateful!
