Sophie la Girafe is an unassuming legend; cute, durable and versatile – babies love her. She is easy to clean and is made from 100% natural rubber and food grade paints. Her soft, safe-to-chew limbs aim to soothe sore gums but Sophie is not only an effective teething toy; she squeaks (although water in the squeaker will stop it from working) and makes a great travel buddy.

Little ones enjoy taking her out and about, showing her the sites – in fact, a nifty Sophie-accessory would be an attachment that clips 'la girafe' onto a buggy, preventing her from being lost or dropped. Sophie might seem over-priced for what is essentially a ‘squeaky toy’ but she inspires loyalty, comfort and joy in equal measures, making her good value for money.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I would recommend this to a fellow mum because Sophie La Girafe is a very baby friendly and soft teething toy. Sophie is hand crafted making each Sophie unique. Sophie is make of a soft rubber making her very durable when the baby is chewing on her. She has lots of different angles and areas for the baby to chew on in the hope that each area will give some relief to a teething baby. Sophie is easy washed down to keep her fresh and clean. She also squeaks when squeezed. As a teething toy, Sophie is fashionable and an attractive toy to have. The packaging is lively and I think this would make a lovely gift to a new baby.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

Sophie has been providing my young baby with the satisfaction of chewing as he is beginning to teethe. He particularly likes to chew on her head as this area is designed to help the front top and bottom teeth. He laughs when Sophie squeaks. Sophie is small enough to be popped into the changing bag so Sophie is at our disposal as and when we should need her.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I cannot suggest any improvements to Sophie as she is perfect in my eyes.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I really liked this product - its so cute, my baby loved it. I also think he liked the giraffe's face as he kept staring at his eyes! I think this toy is great because it is small enough to stick into the changing bag to take out with you, it is cute and it has a squeak. Also you can easily wash the toy so it is quite hygienic for when baby is teething.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

I think this toy is really good value and a really good classic toy which is small enough to take out with you to keep the baby entertained when we are out and about. It is also a really good toy for when baby is teething as they love to suck it.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

This product is good for baby to look at he loves te colours, and it is easy for him to hold. It is easy to pack and does not take up to much room, easy to clean which is always a good thing.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

It does not make my life easier but it has helped my little one while he has started teething, he likes the look of it and seems to be drawn to it as it is the one he always goes to chew on. It is better for baby to soothe his teeth

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

The thing I would change is the sound of the teether, to me it reminds me of a dogs chew toy and that is what puts me off the product. I also find that my baby started teething early and his mouth is quite little he did find it hard to chew on parts as they were too big for his mouth.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

We LOVE sophie! I would recommend her to other mums as shes been a god send. My son enjoyed chewing on the feet! The rubber on different parts of her doesn't seem as hard as other parts. My sons only 5 months old but can hold her really well. Cleaning her is really easy I just use a hygiene wipe on her.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

Shes not a big toy so can take her along with us when we're out. She fits nicely into my changing bag. MY son seems to like her more then the other teething toys we have for him he's grown quite attached to her. Glad we've got her.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

She does kind of remind me of a dog toy - so I'm not sure if there's anyway she could be made to look less dog-toy like. Other then this there's nothing else I can really think of that id change her.
