The Iconic Baby Toy

 

Sophie la girafe® is the most beloved teether for more than 50 years! Born on 25th May in the year 1961 (Saint Sophie's day!). In those days, the only animal toys available were farm animal or pet figures… This is why one day in France, a certain Monsieur Rampeau, who was an expert in transforming latex from the Hevea tree, came up with the idea of designing a giraffe. Such an exotic wildlife figure would be a first on the market, and its size and shape would be ideal for a baby’s small hands to grasp. She was an immediate success! Young mothers straightaway saw that she was a must for their children... When the first signs of teething appears, Sophie la girafe helps baby stop crying! Sophie la girafe ®, 100% made from natural rubber, is still “traditionally” produced to this day, a process that involves more than 14 manual opearations. The manufacturer, Vulli, is based in Rumilly in the Haute-Savoie region of France and continue to keep jealously guarded secret of how this wonder toy is made.
