Why is Sophie the Giraffe so Special? {Updated}

Giraffe TeetherOkay, over the last three days at least three moms have recommended the Sophie the Giraffe teether for my 5 month old son. Currently, he is a drool monster with swollen gums! As soon as fellow moms eye his drool soaked bib they recommend this giraffe. One mom was behind me in a clothing store and had her son who was a tad older than mine and he was chewing away on his giraffe. I think I saw my little guy eye that little guy’s giraffe and then give me a, “Where’s mine, Mom?” look, but I can’t be sure. Then I stopped at our Smoothie Shop and again someone brought up the giraffe!

So I came home and Googled Sophie the giraffe. I would be lying if I said the price didn’t catch me off guard, but I figure it wouldn’t be so popular if there wasn’t something to this thing, right? Or is it just trendy to have your drooling, cranky, teething child toting around a giraffe? Well…. I caved. Yes, I ordered my little fella’ his own giraffe.

Update: I still haven’t cracked the Sophie code, I can tell you that my son LOVES his Sophie the giraffe. As soon as he got it, the giraffe when straight to his mouth and he started biting on it. He will play with it for the longest time and it does seem to be helping him teeth. It’s unique shape makes it easy for him to hold. The only issue we have is that our dachshund is under the impression that any toy that contains a squeaker belongs to her so when the little one is squeaking his giraffe the dog thinks she has a new toy. Just the other day, the son was biting  on and making Sophie the giraffe squeak while the dog was squeaking one of her toys. It was truly a You Tube moment.

    If you want to be near family and friends, then find a place
    closer or more accessible to them. In the longer term, as already mentioned, property situated in
    the most happening zones of a city or town will appreciate at a faster rate than those in other areas
    and it therefore makes sense to invest in such property.

  9. I reckon there is just something perfect about Sophie! My son is 15 months and he was still having fun making her squeak yesterday!

    Also what’s cool is that they are all slightly different. You still have to write the name on because everyone has them but look closely and you’ll see that each Sophie is actually unique :)

    Hope it helps the little one’s gums. Teething is the worst!
