Sophie la girafe®: stimulating the five senses

By Isabelle Gardy, Sophie the Giraffe

Sophie la girafe® is baby’s first toy, stimulating each of their 5 senses from the age of 3 months.

Hearing: Sophie la girafe's squeaker keeps baby amused and stimulates hearing.

Touch: Sophie la girafe's soft feel, like mother's skin, stimulates physiological and emotional responses that soothe baby and promote healthy growth and well-being.

Sight: At the age of 3 months, a baby's eyesight is still limited and he can only make out high contrasts. The dark and contrasting attention-catching spots all over Sophie la girafe's body provide visual stimulation and she soon becomes a familiar and reassuring object for baby.

Taste: Made of 100% natural rubber and food grade paints, she is completely safe to chew. Sophie la girafe is akin to the nipple of a feeding-bottle.

Smell: The singular scent of natural rubber from the Hevea tree makes Sophie la girafe very special and easy for baby to identify amid all their other toys.

Easy to grip: Thanks to her shape and 18cm size, Sophie la girafe is perfect for baby's small hands. She is very light, and her long legs and neck make it easy for baby to grip, even from their earliest days.
