You just can’t knock a toy that’s been a favorite since 1961, can you? Sophie The Giraffe, made by the brilliant toy company Vulli (www.vulli-toys.com) is an absolute cult classic when it comes to babies. Made in the French Alps (ohh la la!) with natural rubber and non toxic paint, Sophie is the perfect safe toy to get your newborn. So what’s got every baby we know hooked on Sophie? They must love the soft rubber, subtle squeaks and easy grasp of this retro toy. It makes a fussy teething baby happy . Mommies love how entertained and soothed their baby is when Sophie is around…our advice? Get at least two, because if baby looses Sophie, you’ll loose your sanity when nothing else calms them quite the same. According to The Globe and Mail, celeb moms have a thing for Sophie as well. Kate Hudson, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Debra Messing all relied on this little French giraffe too. Don’t just take our word for it, see how addictive Sophie is at www.sophiegiraffeusa.com.
