Today’s competition prize is French design classic and baby essential Sophie the Giraffe teether, the ideal Christmas present for a new baby.

Sophie the Giraffe was invented by Monsieur Rampeau in France in the 1960s, who was an expert in transforming sap from thSophie the Giraffee hevea tree using the rotationalmoulding of rubber as a toy-making concept. He came up with the idea of designing a giraffe as the exotic wildlife figure would be a first on the market, and her size and shape is perfect for a baby’s small hands to grasp.

Sophie the Giraffe looked exactly the same then as she does today, and went into production on Thursday 25th May 1961. The toy quickly became an essential new baby gift in France, but wouldn’t become widely used around the rest of the world until recent years.

What makes this particular teething toy so special is a combination of appealing looks and squeaky noise, safe and healthy natural rubber and dyes, and the shape, colour and

 texture that helps baby grip and relieve the pain of their gums. All sensory simulation is covered with Sophie – hearing, taste, touch, smell and sight.

Give the gift that combines practicality and fun for babies this Christmas with Sophie 

the Giraffe!
