SOPHIE THE GIRAFFE
The original Sophie The Giraffe makes a beautiful gift for any newborn. For the last 59 years, Sophie The Giraffe has been a best selling toy in France and is now available at Loft. Made from 100% natural rubber, it is derived from the sap of the Hevea tree making it soft, safe and non-toxic for babies to teethe, chew and love.
Painted in non-toxic food-grade paints, Sophie has been designed with your tiny family member in mind and is 100% safe for little ones to chew. Her renewable, rubber material makes Sophie The Giraffe a great all-natural toy for your baby.
You won't find a more perfect first sensory development toy - lightweight and easy to grasp for little hands, she is stimulating for all of your baby's senses. Every part of Sophie has been designed with your child in mind. Sophie's natural rubber has a natural taste and is tactile for little fingers, her neck is slender - the perfect size for a tiny grip.
Sophie has a gentle squeak, she 'laughs' when her body is squeezed - keeping baby amused and stimulating hearing. Her giraffe spots provide visual stimulation and make Sophie easy to recognise for eyes still learning to focus. When your little one is teething, Sophie's head soothes the front teeth, her feet are long enough to stretch to the back teeth whilst her horns, or giraffe ossicones, provide bumpy parts for sore, teething gums.

More than 59 years later, she looks no different and is still traditionally produced - a process that involves more than 14 manual operations. Derived from 100% natural rubber from the latex of the Hevea tree, the company who produces Sophie The Giraffe has always placed the quality of its products at the heart of its business. Since July 2011, each Sophie The Giraffe produced has her lot number printed on the back of a leg, enabling full product traceability, thus ensuring you can trust that any product purchased meets the highest safety and legislative standards.
