I have to admit on Saturday, April 15 I was one of the 1.2 million people watching life as April the Giraffe gave birth. I thought it was genius that Toys r Us sponsored the feed and had it’s giraffe in the bottom left corner because I would have naturally thought of that giraffe I think. But I honestly also thought about Sophie the Giraffe.
There’s something special about Sophie the Giraffe, it’s no surprise she is one of the first toys babies become attached to.
Handmade exclusively in France, Sophie has been capturing the imagination and tiny hands and mouths of babies since 1961.
All these years later, she hasn’t aged or changed a bit. She is still lovingly crafted using the same series of 14 manual operations and all safe materials.
Why is it parents and babies can’t seem to help falling in love with this little giraffe?
Sophie is safe! — Every Sophie is painstakingly made from 100% natural rubber and painted with food grade dyes so babies can chew and squish to their hearts’ delight.
Sophie is smart! — Her special design entices all five of the senses: touch, sound, sight, smell, and taste.
Sophie is easy to clean! — Simply wipe the surface with a clean, damp cloth and enjoy.
Sophie is exotic! — Have no fear! Sophie hails from Rumilly, France–not China–to put parents’ minds at ease.
**When cleaning, it’s important to remember that giraffes can’t swim! Never submerge, sterilize, throw in the dishwasher, or boil, and be sure to keep her out of the bath.
