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.
