Sophie la girafe© - Baby's first and favourite toy since 1961

Welcome to the official Sophie la girafe® South Africa website - a safe teether stimulating each of Baby's senses.

The famous Sophie la girafe® (Sophie's French name) has been part of babies’ lives for over 50 years. First created in France in 1961, she has become so popular that 99% of French babies have a Sophie! Worldwide, millions of Sophies have been sold and she has become a favourite toy amongst celebrities.

  • Sophie is handmade in France using 100% natural rubber and food quality paint.
  • She is BPA- and phthalates free and is the safest toy for your child.
  • Sophie is sweet, funny and stimulates all five of a baby’s senses.

Slender, flexible and soft, your baby can squeeze and chew her in complete safety. Lovable and amusing, she makes a happy sound when squeezed which stimulates hearing and helps your baby to understand the link between cause and effect.

She is perfect for soothing sore gums when teething. Sophie is made of natural rubber from the Hevea tree and her distinctive smell makes her very special and easy for your child to identify amongst all his other toys. Your child will love Sophie!
