Sophie La GiraffeSophie the Giraffe is designed and made in rural France where it is traditional to give new babies a Sophie the Giraffe teething toy as a first gift. This tradition has rapidly caught on over here and now this superb brand is growing in popularity in the UK.
Although Sophie the Giraffe is a fairly recent arrival to the UK she actually started life in France in 1961! Back then, the only animal toys available were pets and farm animals so this cute giraffe was something really different and the French people took her to their hearts. Her size and shape are perfect for a baby to grab and chew and made exclusively from sap from the hevea tree with all natural materials, she remains exactly the same today as she did back then.
It takes more than 14 manual operations to produce the toy the world has come to know and love and many of the processes used originally are still employed during production. Of course the company has been able to expand and include other products in the range but each item is afforded the same care and attention of the original.
Made from the rubber of the hevea tree, the original Sophie the Giraffe continues to be a best-selling item worldwide. Winner of multiple awards, she is made from totally natural products including food grade dyes for her colouring and is unsurpassed when used for comforting a teething child…she also has an adorable little squeak that children love.
The Sophie the Giraffe Gift Set includes the same original Sophie with the addition of a colourful rattle with a super spinning ball in the middle containing a miniature giraffe and a Sophie vanilla teether which is soft and chewy and has different textured surfaces for really heavy teething days and smells heavenly. All of this is contained in a cloth backed carry bag with a clear front panel.
Created by Trousselier, the Sophie la Girafe Spinning Music Box makes a beautiful and soothing addition to any child’s nursery. Beautifully decorated in a delicate floral pattern, the box is wound up using the key on the underside, the box starts to play the song ‘Feelings’ and when the 2 little Sophie characters are placed on top they dance and pirouette together until the music stops.
Every thought is put into products under the Sophie the Giraffe banner, they are designed to stimulate the senses and provide play enjoyment. It’s no accident that 9 out of 10 new-born babies in France are given their own Sophie la girafe.
