Sophie the Giraffe Review

History of Sophie

The little giraffe known to consumers as Sophie was born in 1961. At that time the only animal toys for babies and children were farm or pet animals. Monsieur Rampeau who was an expert in transforming latex from the HEVEA tree using the rotational molding of rubber as a toy-making concept, came up with the idea of designing a giraffe.

She went into production on May 25th, 1961 and she looks the same today as she did then.

She is made from 100% natural rubber derived from the latex of the Hevea tree

“Vulli, a company based in Rumilly in the Haute-Savoie Region of France, has continued to keep the jealously-guarded secret of how this wonder toy is made. Sophie is still “traditionally” produced to this day, a process that involves more than 14 manual operations.” – Sophie the Giraffe Website

Stimulating the Five Senses


Sophie the Giraffe – Chewing Bandana


Bandana’s are so in right now. They are the cute accessory we love to have our infants sport. Drooling and babies is like peanut butter and jelly…they just go together. If you are going to put a bib on your child because of drooling then you should know that all the drooling is most likely due to teething. When both of my children are teething their sinus cavities start going crazy. They become snotty little drool machines. The concept of putting a teether on the bandana is just so smart! The two just go together…like peanut butter and jelly!


This bandana come in a boy and a girl version (blue or pink). I really think either color looks great on either gender. They are stylish, functional and super fun.

They have 2 snaps to adjust the fit based on your child’s size.

These are now available for $17.18. Click here to see it on their website.

Sophie the Giraffe – So’pure Teether


These teethers are just like the original Sophie the Giraffe, only with additional material for a small child to hold on to and to chew on. The multi textured surface gives the child more stimulation then the original Sophie. These are great for early teethers.



These are now available for $17.74. Click here to see it on their website.

    I have been so wanting to get Sophie for my 9 month old. I love that she is made out of natural rubber and it will be so much healthier for my daughter to chew on.

    It IS so hard to believe that Sophie the Giraffe went into production on May 25th, 1961!! She is just about 5 years younger than me & I don’t remember seeing Sophie ever. I’m glad to make her acquaintance!
    I love that she is made from 100% natural rubber derived from the latex of the Hevea tree – CLEVER!!

    I love this toy for babies! I have been a nanny for many years, and have used this toy with many of the children I have watched. Now that I am expecting my own baby, I definitely plan to have a Sophie! 🙂 I love that it is 100 natural for my baby.

    I love how they thought of everything when it comes to teething!! The legs to reach the molars and the nubs of the ears for the front of the mouth and so on! And Sophie is just too cute in the first place, it’s just an awesome concept all together!!!

    My poor baby is constantly fussing and chewing on everything. The problem is, she’s too young to hold things in her mouth, so she just cries until we hold it for her. I cant afford a sophie though. The Christmas set made my heart melt.

    I love that Sophie is made from 100% natural rubber derived from the latex of the Hevea tree and painted with food grade paints. That makes me feel safe giving it to my precious little man. And I’ve never seen a teether on a bib before and think it’s just genius. The bandana design is really stinkin cute too.

    Wow, I thought Sophie was a fairly new item on the market! I love that Sophie is made with babies in mind – all the different parts are great for the stages of teething. Our little girl has a kind-of giraffe theme going on and this would be the perfect addition especially since she’s on the verge of teething!!

    I love how Sophie The Giraffe Teether is all natural, made with 100% rubber and painted with food based paints. This gives me a peace of mind knowing my daughter won’t be ingesting any weird chemicals. The design is super cute and appears to be easy to grab for teething babies. As for the bandana, I think it’s adorable! I love how it’s gender neutral, and unique!

    My daughter has the early teether, and she loves it! Not even teething yet, but the rings are the perfect size for her hands to hold, and she’ll put just about anything in her mouth (and this is made of safe materials and nothing too pointy).

    Sophie sure is a popular little girl! She is the perfect toy for babies to chew on and put in their mouths. You can’t say that about every toy. And now the bandanas. How neat are they. I am thinking they might even work for the geriatric population. And I can’t forget the teether.
