I have yet to meet a baby who doesn’t love Sophie the Giraffe; It’s kind of crazy really. Clementine was gifted with one at Christmas and it’s her absolute favorite thing. She won’t take a pacifier, she only wants this crazy little giraffe.

Sophie has been around for almost 50 years! She was created in France by Monsieur Rampeau, who was an expert in transforming sap from the Hevea tree using the rotational molding of rubber as a toy-making concept, and came up with the idea of designing a giraffe. Sophie is made of 100% natural rubber and food paint, and is completely safe to chew and is Phthalates and BPA free. Her soft texture and chewable parts (ears, horns, legs), make her perfect for soothing baby’s sore gums during teething. The scent of natural rubber from the Hevea tree makes Sophie the Giraffe very special and easy for your child to identify amid all his other toys.

This is such a great teether. I’ve always hated the circular teethers that you stick in the fridge, they have that hard and sharp seam on the edge. Like I said, Clementine *loves* Sophie and I can tell that it really soothes her as she enters into the world of teething. She is kind of pricey for a teether, yes, but so far she’s been worth the investment (even though we got it for Christmas, score!). I also like the peace of mind knowing that my kiddo is chewing on something natural & safe.
