Sophie by me

One of the true nursery icons, Sophie la girafe is celebrating 60 years this May and to celebrate, she's lost her spots and has her sights on a brand-new birthday print!

To mark the milestone anniversary, families around the world are being invited to get involved in designing a limited-edition version, Sophie By Me.

Commenting on the vote and upcoming milestone, Lorraine from 1 two KIDS, Sophie’s UK distributor says: 'The super cute, safe and natural teething toy is truly adored by her fans and has quite the global following. It certainly seems fitting to get the Sophie lovers of the world involved in marking such a significant milestone. We hope Sophie fans young and old get involved in the fun and are excited to see which design is the winner.' 

Design the next Sophie la girafe:

  1. Create your Sophie By Me. The Top 5 Sophie created the most in the world will be finalists.
  2. On May 25, the Jury will unveil the chosen one from these 5 candidates.
  3. In September, this design – which could be yours – will be sold in a 60th anniversary collector’s edition.
  4. Try your luck to win one of The first 60 numbered Sophie By Me collector and limited edition toys!

Choosing between 12 patterns and five colours per pattern, there are 60 fun and striking options. Make sure you have your say!

Sophie remains the world’s bestselling teething toy and for very good reason! True to her heritage, Sophie la girafe is made in exactly the same way she was at the very beginning. Made from 100% natural rubber derived from the sap of the Hevea tree, Sophie’s flexible, renewable, natural materials and food-grade non-toxic paint mean she is the safest and most natural teething toy.
