Born in France in 1961, Sophie quickly became a must have baby toy. Since her creation, Sophie the Giraffe has wowed over 20 million babies (and parents!) with her natural beauty and charm. The toy is designed to stimulate the senses with her soft colours and gentle squeak and soothe teething gums.
The product is made from renewable, natural rubber from the sap of the Hevea tree. Natural rubber is soft for baby to teethe and non-toxic paint means she is a safe and all-natural teething toy. Sophie is super flexible, lightweight and easy to grasp for tiny hands. She also includes a gentle internal squeaker.
The manufacturer, Vulli, was founded in 1946 and enjoys an excellent reputation as a specialist in the field of nursery items and toys. The company has continued to keep details of how this toy is made a jealously guarded secret. Sophie is still produced by hand using traditional methods and requires more than 14 manual manufacturing steps. Alongside Sophie, Vulli produces around 250 products, with 60% of their production taking place at their Rumilly site in the Haute Savoie region of France.
