I learned about Sophie the Giraffe when I was checking out gift ideas for baby showers. My cousin is having a baby shower party (in FLORIDA, so I will not be able to join but I did send her gifts for her Kassie). Sophie the Giraffe is among the TOP TEN gift ideas for baby shower, and having a baby of my own, I decided to buy one. So I looked for online shop who are based in the Philippines in order to buy Sophie the Giraffe for my Chicay.
When I saw the online shop, I didn’t hesitate, the price for Sophie the Giraffe in the US and here is almost the same so it’s alright for me. The Fawnshoppe is the online shop that I am talking about. They sell Sophie the Giraffe for only 1080php and I got mine for 999php because of their online promo. Of course, this blog post will not be complete without Sophie’s photo so let us all welcome Sophie La Girafe:
Let me also share with you what I have read from The Fawnshoppe’s description about Sophie and how it can help your child develop her or his 5 senses:
Sophie the Giraffe is BABY’S FIRST TOY, stimulating EACH OF HIS SENSES from the age of months:
At the age of 3 months, a baby’s eyesight is still limited and he can only make out high contrasts. The dark and contrasting attention-catching spots all over Sophie the Giraffe’s body provide visual stimulation and she soon becomes a familiar and reassuring object for baby.
Sophie the Giraffe’s squeaker keeps baby amused and stimulates his hearing. To begin with, the funny sound Sophie makes when she is squeezed helps to stimulate baby’s hearing, and then later, helps him to understand the link between cause and effect..
Sophie the Giraffe is made of 100% natural rubber and food paint, and is completely safe to chew, just like a feeding bottle teat. Her soft texture and numerous chewable parts (ears, horns, legs), make her perfect for soothing baby’s sore gums during teething.
Touch is the first means a baby has of communicating with the outside world. Sophie the Giraffe’s soft feel, like baby’s mother’s skin, stimulates physiological and emotional responses that soothe baby and promote healthy growth and well-being.
The singular scent of natural rubber from the Hevea tree makes Sophie the Giraffe very special and easy for your child to identify amid all his other toys.
Easy to grip:
Sophie the Giraffe’s shape and 18cm size are perfect for baby’s small hands. She is very light, and her long legs and neck are easy for baby to grip, even from his earliest days.

Just simply wipe with a damp cloth. Do not immerse in water for a long time. Do not sterilize. You may notice that the colors of the giraffe fades over time especially when constantly chewed by your baby.
