Sophie the Giraffe

I have acquired a Sophie! I’m not having a baby or anything, this is just something I’ve always wanted. First created in 1961, this Earth-friendly rubber teething toy has risen to heights of popularity that I cannot substantiate with a single statistic so you’ll have to just trust me that she’s big.

She was made by a Parisian toymaker from the natural rubber extracted from the sap of the HAVEA tree. Barnes has recently started selling them and I picked one up the other day. You can read more about her at her website here.

Here's Giuseppi hanging out with Sophie. I think he has a little celebrity crush on her.



  1. OMG. I want one of those, too… How cute!

      Our green house actually sells them 🙂 although… neither of us has an infant who needs a teething toy…

    So sweet… and so funny that our Havalah just picked up a catalog and picked that very toy and one other that she really wants a week ago “for her own”… and that is saying something because she can cover the toy aisles of Target and not find something she loves and if she doesn’t love it… she doesn’t like it 🙂 I think it is wonderful that you two had the exact same tastes!
