Tuck the iconic Sophie the Giraffe into your baby’s Easter basket! There is just something magical about Sophie, isn’t there? From the way she looks, to the way she smells (faintly of vanilla), to how easy she is to grab and wave, it’s no surprise Sophie is one of the first toys babies adore! Handmade exclusively in France, Sophie the Giraffe is a timeless design that has been capturing the imagination and tiny hands and mouths of babies since 1961. Every Sophie is painstakingly made from 100% natural rubber and painted with food grade dyes so babies can chew and squish to their hearts’ delight. Easy to clean – simply wipe the surface with a clean, damp cloth after baby has drooled on and played with Sophie. https://www.sophiethegiraffe-usa.com/
