    Born in France in 1961. Still the same even after more than 50 years!

    Designed to stimulate the senses and soothe teething pains, Sophie the Giraffe is a true icon, loved by millions of children (and parents!) around the world!

    Sophie the Giraffe is Baby’s first toy that stimulates each of the five senses.

    Made from 100 per cent natural rubber (Phthalate-free) derived from the sap of the Hevea tree, Sophie’s flexible, renewable, natural materials and non-toxic food grade paint mean she is a safe and natural teething toy for your little one.

    Sophie is still produced traditionally in France using a closely guarded process involving 14 manual operations.

    Since her birth in 1961, Sophie the Giraffe has wowed over 50 million babies (and parents) worldwide with her natural beauty and charm, and her retro style has ensured that she has remained a “must have” baby toy.

    This version contains an Original Sophie la girafe® in classic ‘il était une fois’ gift box packaging.

    Community Questions

    A: Sophie la girafe is made using 100% natural rubber. To “decorate” her, we use a paint composed of 100% natural rubber that is mixed with natural pigments. Discover the secrets behind how she is made here.
    A: 100% natural rubber, a pure, living material, is the very essence of a commitment to quality.

    Just like coffee, several varieties of natural rubber exist, each having different properties. In the interest of quality and safety, the rubber variety we have selected meets very strict mechanical and chemical requirements. It makes it possible to create sturdy, soft and pleasant to the touch products while ensuring suppleness and safety for Baby. The same type of rubber is most notably used in the fabrication of surgical gloves and condoms. Like any natural material, it changes over time.
    A: Sourced from hevea trees, natural rubber is endowed with exceptional properties, specifically flexible resistance to strong stresses. This is the reason why it is used in the fabrication of products that must meet high quality requirements.

    It is also waterproof, soft and pleasant to the touch.
    A: Natural rubber comes from the hevea trees. Each morning, at dawn, traditional growers extract the rubber from the tree by tapping its bark.

    The rubber tree plantations that we use to produce Sophie la girafe have been established in Malaysia for decades. True to our vision and values, we place great importance on the way it is cultivated.
    A: Natural rubber is a material of botanical origin, while plastic is a material of primarily synthetic petrochemical origin.

    For its part, Sophie la girafe is made from 100% natural rubber sourced from rubber trees (Hevea).
    A: The paints used on Sophie la girafe are composed of 100% natural rubber (the same as the one used for the fabrication of Sophie la girafe) and natural pigments. Once these two materials are mixed by the operator, they form the food-grade "paint" that is used to decorate Sophie la girafe.

    The same brown pigment is applied to make the spots, ears, horns and hoofs; the pink pigment to make the mouth and cheeks; and finally, the black pigment for the eyes.
    A: All our giraffes are hand-painted. Their colour differs according to the quantity of material, the shade of the natural pigment and the actions of our operators in our workshops. Each Sophie la girafe is therefore unique.
