About Sophie La Girafe
The simple story of a girafe born on May 25th in the year 1961, Saint Sophie’s day. In those days, the only animal toys available were farm animals and pet figures …
That is why one day in France, a certain Monsieur RAMPEAU, who was an expert in transforming the latex from the HEVEA tree using the rotational moulding of rubber as a toy-making concept, came up with the idea of designing a giraffe. Such an exotic wildlife figure would be a first on the market, and its size and shape would be ideal for a baby’s small hand to grasp.
Sophie la girafe, who looked exactly the same than she does today, went into production on a Thursday, May 25th, hence her name.
She was an immediate success. Young parents immediately recognized that she was a must for their baby… When the first signs of teething appear, Sophie la girafe helps babies stop crying!
By simple word of mouth, the little giraffe’s fame spread. From then on around the world, generations upon generations of children were to love hearing Sophie squeak whenever they pressed her tummy or head!
VULLI, a company based in Rumilly in the Haute-Savoie region of France has continued to keep the highly guarded secret of how this wonder toy is made.
To this day, Sophie la girafe is still “traditionally” produced, a process that involves more than 14 manual operations.
She is made from 100% natural rubber derived from the latex of the Hevea tree.
Why We Love It
The smaller version of Sophie! We love that the handles make it very easy for those tiny hands to hold it, and once they get used it, it won’t leave your little bubba’s side. We love that it is made from pure rubber, making it safe to chew on, and of course, we love how cute Sophie looks.
