One of the true nursery icons, Sophie la girafe is celebrating turning 60.

With a heritage spanning 6 decades, Sophie la girafe has become a truly global hero - trusted by millions of parents to sooth gums and bring joy to little ones from day one!

Staying true to her history, Sophie la girafe is still produced traditionally in France, from 100% natural rubber derived from the sap of the Hevea tree. Using the same method since day one, Sophie is made following a closely guarded process involving 14 manual operations.

The Sophie la girafe original teether is perfect for soothing baby during teething. Soft and supple, with a delicious scent, this teether has many parts to chew on and features a variety of differing textures. Thanks to its compact form, this teether makes it easy for the littlest of hands to grab and manipulate.

A classic, cross-generational toy, Sophie la girafe remains the world’s bestselling teething toy and for very good reason! Made from 100% natural rubber derived from the sap of the Hevea tree, Sophie’s flexible, renewable, natural materials and food grade non-toxic paint mean she is the safest and most natural teething toy.

With a long line of celebrity fans and hints of Royal connections, Sophie has earned her place in the hall of fame and undoubtedly become the must have fashion accessory for every new parent and bouncing bubba!

Commenting on the milestone birthday, Lorraine from 1 two KIDS, Sophie’s UK distributor said: “The super cute, some might say legendary, teething toy is truly adored by her fans. 100% natural and safe, it’s understandable how the iconic toy has garnered a global following during the last 60 years. To mark the birthday, there will be celebrations around the world and this September we’ll be unveiling a limited-edition Sophie By Me design, as voted for by thousands of fans young and old.”
