About Sophie The Giraffe

Sophie The Giraffe Teether Is A Unique Teething Toy

Sophie the Giraffe is made from 100% natural rubber and still "traditionally" produced for more than 50 years. Sophie the Giraffe® is regarded as the perfect baby's first toy as it stimulates each of babies senses and is a natural teether and a safe comforter/friend to little ones throughout their early years. 

Once upon a time...Sophie Giraffe was born... the simple story of Sophie Giraffe born on May 25th in the year 1961, Saint Sophie's day.

That is why one day in France, a certain Monsieur RAMPEAU, who was an expert in transforming the latex from the HEVEA tree using the rotational moulding of rubber as a toy-making concept, 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 hand to grasp.

Sophie la giraffe, who looked exactly the same than she does today, went into production on a Thursday, May 25th, hence her name.

Sophie Giraffe was an immediate success. Young parents immediately recognized that she was a must for their baby... When the first signs of teething appear, Sophie the giraffe helps babies stop crying!

By simple word of mouth, the little giraffe's fame spread. From then on around the world, generations upon generations of children were to love hearing Sophie squeak whenever they pressed her tummy or head!

VULLI, a company based in Rumilly in the Haute-Savoie region of France has continued to keep the highly guarded secret of how this wonder toy is made.

To this day, Sophie the Giraffe is still "traditionally" produced, a process that involves more than 14 manual operations. She is made from 100% natural rubber derived from the latex of the Hevea tree.
