One day in France, Monsieur Rampeau, who was an expert in transforming the natural latex, came up with the idea of designing a giraffe... such an exotic wildlife figure would be a first on the market in Europe, and its size and shape would be ideal for a baby's small hand to grasp!

Sophie's name refers to the product's launch on 25 May 1961, the feast day of Saint Madeline Sophie Barat. It has achieved national icon status in France, with more sold each year (816,000 in 2010) than babies are born (796,000!) Shop the original Sophie the Giraffe Teething Toy in Gift Box here!

To this day, Sophie is still 'traditionally' produced, a process that involves more than 14 'manual operations,' which means that each Sophie touches real hands in the creation of the toys and each one is of course, super special! She is made from 100% natural rubber derived from the latex of the Hevea tree and is completely safe for your little angel, helping them out with growing, hearing and strengthening their senses.

Today, Sophie the Giraffe is available in a whole collection of teething toys, teething rings, baby gifts and there's even a new friend: Fanfan the Fawn Teething Toy! Fanfan also has the internal squeaker to help the baby understand the link between cause and auditory effect and natural elasticity and flexibility, to help the baby to chew, especially when teething!

A perfect gift for a newborn or baby shower, The So Pure My Birth Outfit is a gorgeous, packaged set complete with a Sophie la Girafe stimulating toy, a soft quilted blanket, 100% organic cotton birth cap and socks and a waterproof bib, all packaged in a beautiful gift box ready to gift! Although Sophie is safe to use from birth, most parents find that as their infant begins to discover their own hands and starts putting them in their mouth (at around 3 months of age), they will begin enjoying Sophie! Don't wait until it's a baby teether emergency, make sure the little cutie is prepped and ready for the perfect teething toy experience!

Another amazing transformation of Sophie is the super popular Teething Colo'rings featuring several soft parts to nibble with a variety of textures: rounded dots, ribbed surfaces, Sophie's ears and horns, offering different ways for your baby to soothe their gums! The perfect teething ring for your teething baby, a new baby gift, baby shower or birth!

The Sophie Teething Ring is made of 100% natural rubber, the same natural rubber and food grade paints as the original Sophie la Girafe. Great for little hands to hold and chomp on instead of their fingers. This incredible baby gift idea is ideal for soothing painful gums and features a variety of textures to relieve your baby at different stages of teething. 

The rubber comes exclusively from the Hevea trees growing in Malaysia. Each morning before the heat of the day settles in, the milky liquid that oozes from the cells beneath the bark is collected from these millions of Hevea trees. This liquid is known as latex: natural, soft, elastic, waterproof, insulating and pleasant to smell and touch!

The perfect addition to any baby or Sophie la Girafe gift: your baby will love discovering Sophie with The Sophie Soft Maracas! With added textured tags for more grabbing fun, your baby will love the multi coloured balls rattling to different effects, as well as the soft fabric in the bottom section that crinkles when touched. When it comes to baby teether age, these gifts are sure to be a hit!
