Cons: Natural rubber=latex
Sophie the Giraffe Natural Teether
Pros: multiple teething surfaces, easy to hold, cute!
Just had to chime in and give Sophie some positive props on behalf of my daughter and all the other babes I know who love this great teething toy! Sophie has given my DD much relief while teething lately. And, she has been able to hold Sophie since she was pretty young, thanks to the size and shapes, even when she had a hard time hanging on to other teethers.
BTW, I am fairly sensitive to odors and tastes, and Sophie does not bother me at all.
Pros: soft and safe, can be put in fridge for a cold teether
We have Sophie and several other Vulli teethers. They are cute, well made and safe. My son never teethed on Sophie (or anything else unless it was something he SHOULDN'T be teething on :rolleyes) but big sister enjoyed playing with it and ds plays with it now that he's bigger. It's still in great shape so we'll see if the next babe likes it.
Pros: Easy to hold
Cons: Strong rubber odor
I bought this for my son after hearing everyone rave about it. He never took to it. Maybe he's like me and didn't like the rubber smell/taste of it (I could even smell it on my hands after handling it.)
Pros: Non-toxic, bendy, squeaky, lots of ways for babes to grab
We love Sophie around here! Our Sophie has been through two kids and is still going strong.
My six-month-old loves to grab and twist her and make her squeak. She's an especially big hit when we have to go somewhere in the car.
We love that she's non-toxic (food-based dyes are used, even) and stuffable in to most pockets.
Hooray for Sophie!
Pros: didn't find any
Cons: yucky smelly gets a really dirty look very quicky
kids never took to this and neither did we, it maybe french but there are many other nicer products that this - sorry we just stuck ours in the bin!!
Pros: Easy for little hands to hold, helps teethers, super cute
Cons: little pricey for a teething toy
Sophie is a great teething toy. Actually it's the only teething toy our daughter will use.
Pros: Easy to put in mouth, easy to grip, chewable
Cons: squeak can get annoying if done too much
I bought Sophie because of the good reviews on this site. I had never actually heard of her before then.
My daughter LOVES her, but so do her older brother and sister! The big two like to squeak her a lot which gets a little annoying, but when the baby is playing with Sophie, she will bang her on the ground (like she's walking) and it makes just a faint cute little squeak! Love it :)
Pros: Easy to grasp, very chewable, attractive
Cons: Initial odor
Overall, Sophie is a great addition to our teether/toy collection! I will gladly choose to give Sophie to expectant parents, as well.
Pros: natural rubber, very cute
My son loved this teether when he was little. Even now at 17 months, he still likes it even though has graduated to more hardcore teething aids like ice in a sock! The neck and legs are really easy for the little guys to hold, and I think they must like the bold pattern. This teether is really durable also. I even put it through the dishwasher a couple times (out of laziness!), and it held up just fine. Sophie is definitely a must have!
