Vulli, a company based in Rumilly in the Haute-Savoie region of France has continued to keep the jealously-guarded secret of how this wonder toy is made.

I purchased this for my 1 yr old daughter as a toy to keep her happy for nappy changes. I am blown away by how much she loves her Sophie and we now take Sophie with us EVERYWHERE!! Perfect size for little hands to grasp onto, nice and strong.... we have 4 teeth with 2 more on the way and the constant chewing hasn't damaged or bothered Sophie in the slightest, nice and easy for my little one to give her a good squeeze and hear Sophie squeak. I also love how easy it is to give Sophie a good wipe when she gets unceremoniously tossed onto the dr surgery floor. Highly recommend this cute giraffe, I'm sure your little one will love her as much as we do
The Bub loved Sophie, will buy again!(4/06/2014)
Sophie is a gem to have. Every single Sophie I have purchased brings joy to any bub. I love the service I receive at Urban Baby. I would buy this product over and over again!
