Sophie the Giraffe is a teething toy that has gained a lot of popularity over the years. With a track record of fifty years, Sophie has continually been bought and loved by mothers.
It is a bit pricey compared to other teethers and has been described as some as a “glorified dog toy”. However, this is simply not true; it is made with rubber and squeaks like a lot of dog toys, sure, but that is where the similarities end. There are numerous features of this product that make it an attractive choice.
It is safe product (Phthalates and BPA free) made specifically for teething that provides just the right stimulation for your little one. Most parents will agree that it worth it to buy a safe, engaging, quality teether for a few extra dollars than something cheap.
This teething toy is made of 100% natural rubber and food paint, so it is completely safe to chew. The soft texture and various chewable parts (ears, legs, etc.) make this a wonderful item for soothing a baby’s sore gums during teething.
It also has a unique scent from the natural rubber it is made from (Hevea trees) that make it very easy for your child to identify among all their other toys.
It is very light, at 1.6 ounces and the shape of the giraffe with the long legs and neck make it easy for a little baby to grip. The contrasting color spots on the giraffe provide visual stimulation (at the age of 3 months, a baby’s eyesight is still limited and they can only make out high contrasts.)
Overall, this is an excellent baby teether toy that will last for many years.
Here’s what one customer said about this product…
“My four month old baby loves this giraffe! I tried other teethers that were more standard, and he couldn’t stand them. Ring teethers were too huge in all areas to get into his mouth at all, and the plastic was too hard and brittle and seemed to cause him pain.”
