Sophie the Giraffe Natural Teether

Rated #2 in Teething


Cons: Natural rubber=latex

I received Sophie as a gift at my baby shower. I am highly allergic to latex, an allergy that was developed as an adult from repeated exposure to latex (wearing latex gloves at work). I noticed my arms were itching after handling Sophie. I went online and discovered the natural rubber this toy is made from is LATEX! The last thing I want is for my infant to develop a latex allergy from repeat exposure. Yikes!


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: 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

I ordered the Sophie the GIraffe teether for my five month old daughter who was teething hard and chewing on *everything*. The initial odor of the natural rubber was a bit strong, but it didn't seem to bother DD. It dissipated after a day or two and hasn't been an issue since. It's been about six weeks since we got Sophie, and she's been a favorite toy of DD's. I pulled a handful of toys out of her basket today, and she immediately went for Sophie. She can grab almost anywhere on the teether and get a good grip, plus plenty of space to chew on. The "give" of the rubber seems to be just right as a teething surface. The squeaker initially bugged me, mostly as my older boys tried to show her how to squeak it, but now, as she plays with it and it squeaks gently, I don't mind at all.

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

Cons: expensive

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!
