Who (or what) is Sophie the Giraffe?

This page may contain compensated links. For more information read our disclaimer here.

Sophie the Giraffe is the most popular baby toy that was the first of her kind. She was first manufactured in 1961 by a French expert, Monsieur Rampeau that started the toy-making concept of moulding rubber. 

Sophie the Giraffe was an instant success, and the fact that she is still the leading baby toy in today’s market speaks so much of that achievement. Until now, generations upon generations of parents continue to admire the awesome qualities of Sophie the Giraffe, and so did we.

We didn’t learn about Sophie the Giraffe until our daughter was 4 months old. We first bought the original Sophie the Giraffe and she loved it! So, not long after we ordered more Sophie goodies for her to play with.

Get to know more about this popular baby toy, Sophie, and her friends through this list.

1 – Sophie the Giraffe

First of its kind, Sophie the Giraffe is a must-have for parents and babies alike. She is the number one toy that caters to all of your baby’s senses. Sophie the Giraffe’s body has spots with varying colours to help engage and improve your baby’s developing vision. Her long, thin neck and legs also make her a lot easier for your baby’s tiny hand to grasp.

Other than that, this toy also creates a squeaky sound every time you press her tummy, catching the attention and interest of your little peanut and providing a link to cause and effect. Her body has different textures to address your baby’s sense of touch, and lots of her body parts are designed for your baby to chew and provide comfort for his sore gums. We even read that the specific scent of Sophie makes her easy to identify amid your baby’s other toys, for example when playing on an activity mat.

2 – So’Pure Bath Toy

Sensory play is integral in your baby’s growth. Our little one loves bathing time. The bathroom is her happy room. So, when better to entertain your baby than when she’s happy? This So’Pure bath toy is made from 100% natural rubber, just like Sophie the Giraffe. It is absolutely safe and durable to play with. Its body is designed with a multitude of textures making it so much fun for your baby to use. As it’s shaped in the form of a buoy, it’s super easy for your little one to grab. Our little monkey likes chewing on the textures, ears, and horns, especially while teething.

3 – Multi-textured Rattle

This toy contains soft and hard textures with small protruding round surfaces to prompt the progress of your baby’s sensory touch. Not only is it multi-textured, but it is also multi-functional. This multi-textured rattle from Sophie the Giraffe has four shapes that your little one can slide around. Its brilliant colours also make it attractive to look at and easily distinguishable. It includes small coloured balls as well that create an interesting sound when shaken. And, of course, the smiling face of Sophie the Giraffe can’t be missed.

4 – Teething Ring

Toys do not only facilitate sensory growth but they can also soothe natural pain that babies undergo as they rapidly grow. The Sophie the Giraffe teething ring is the first teether made of 100% natural rubber. The two rings have a different finish from each other, so your baby can choose which one he prefers. This surely gives immediate relief to an aching gum, and as a result, if you’re lucky you can get your well-deserved break from your baby’s screams of ache.

5 – Sophie the Giraffe Gift Set

If you wish to get something with an all-in-one feature, this Sophie the Giraffe gift set is the perfect deal for you. This set comprises Sophie the Giraffe and Sophie the Giraffe Teething Ring. Remember when we said that their main product (Sophie the Giraffe) already addresses all of your baby’s five senses? Add a teething ring to that and you are all set to definitely having a more peaceful time with your little one as he fully engages himself with this set of fun toys. 

Quality Playtime With Your Baby

We all know that children discover a lot by playing on their own. They get to solve simple problems, link a cause to its effect, and strengthen hand-eye coordination among others. Providing educational and fun toys to your baby may be an additional expense, but to us, the benefits that our baby got definitely outweighs the cost. The time that you spend playing with him through these toys also results in a positive relationship and bond that both of you will have. We only want what’s best for our babies, don’t we?
