Sophie The Giraffe
Sophie the Giraffe is famous with little teethers all around the world! Sophie is made from 100% natural rubber derived from the latex of the Hevea tree, manually produced in France since 1961. Her long neck and legs are perfect for baby's to hold onto and chew - she lets out a delightful squeak when she is squeezed and she smells lightly of vanilla. Sophie is perfect for babies starting at 3 months when they can grasp and hold her while learning to pull her into their mouths to chew on. Her spots are hand-painted with food grade paint made from natural rubber and natural pigments.

Under normal use of Sophie la girafe and in accordance with packaging instructions, cleaning the toy’s surface using a cloth moistened with soapy water is all that is needed. Please note that the toy’s whistle leaves a hole on the surface. Users must therefore ensure that water does not enter inside the product during cleaning.
For this same reason, it is important to refrain from rinsing or submerging Sophie la girafe and from placing the toy in the dishwasher.
If required, it is possible to spend more time scrubbing with your cloth moistened with soapy water. In fact, the longer the time spent scrubbing the product with soap, the more effective the cleaning.
Remember to check Sophie frequently for wear and tear as she is made from a natural substance. Sophie shouldn't be shared and should be replaced over time.
