This little giraffe was born on 25th May 1961…Saint Sophie’s day. According to Wikipedia in France 9 out of 10 newborns are given a Sophie La Girafe, and we can’t be far off it in the UK as almost every baby I know has a Sophie!
Sophie is the perfect shape for little hands to grasp, and is made from natural rubber which is just perfect for little mouths to gnaw at, making it a great soother for the hell that is teething! It is light to hold and has a little squeaker which always brings a smile to Baby Squirrel’s face.
Who would have thought a little rubber giraffe could be so great?!
We actually received two Sophies as gifts when Baby Squirrel was born. Naively we exchanged one as we thought, who needs two? Turns out we were wrong… Sophie The First went missing recently (I suspect she jumped out of the pram on Byres Road). Sophie The Second was swiftly purchased!
