Sophie la girafe® has been a must-have toy for the past 60 years. She was born on May 25th 1961 on Saint Sophie’s Day! This year, she is turning 60!

Sophie la girafe® is still handmade in France from a 100% natural rubber derived from the latex of the Hevea tree and high-quality food grade paint.

Sophie la girafe® is a UNIQUE teething toy that can be chewed on throughout (from head to toe). She is SOFT and chewy all over and babies love to explore gnashing on Sophie la girafe’s® horns and ears and long legs. Babies love to put Sophie’s legs in their mouth so they can chew the entire length of their gum bed. Therefore, Sophie la girafe® helps with early and late stage teething.

Tested and controlled at all manufacturing stages, every Sophie la girafe® is also given a tracking number to ensure optimal quality control.

Since her creation, 70 million units of the legendary giraffe have been sold throughout the world and she is now exported to 85 countries.

She has been adopted by loads of stars and their babies: Naomi Watts, Uma Thurman, Miranda Kerr, Madonna, Nicole Richie, Jessica Alba, Elton John and Kim Kardashian to name just a few.

Happy birthday Sophie!
