It’s Sophie’s 50th Birthday! As a baby’s first toy, stimulating each of their senses, she was an immediate success. Sight: her contrasting and attention catching spots provide visual stimulation Touch: as soft as baby’s mother’s skin Taste: perfect for soothing baby’s sore gums Hearing: her squeaker keeps baby amused and stimulates their hearing Easy to grip: her size is perfect for baby’s small hands A few years later, Sophie the giraffe left Paris for Rumilly in Haute-Savoie where she is still produced traditionally with a process that involves 14 manual operations. For decades babies all over the world have been raving about Sophie the Giraffe and in 2011 she will be 50 years old and so the story goes on! Sophie is one of our most popular products and we are always receiving comments on how much babies love Sophie. The gift box set would make a wonderful gift for a mother with a newborn, not only as Sophie is safe for newborn babies but also as it contains a gift card to write the baby’s name, when they were born, what time they were born, how much they weighed, how much they measured, what colour eyes and hair they have and who gave them Sophie. It even has a space for a newborn photo, this gift set could become a memento that is kept and treasured forever.
