On May 25 will be Sophie la girafe’s birthday! 

The most famous toy in the world for babies, over 50 million Sophie la girafe all-natural baby teethers have been sold since 1961, A classic shower gift, Sophie had long been a fixture in nurseries for 55 years.

As per Sophie la girafe official website: 

That is why one day in France a certain Monsieur Rampeau, who was an expert in transforming the sap from the hevea tree using the rotational moulding of rubber as a toy-making concept, came up with the idea of designing a giraffe. Such an exotic wildlife figure would be a first on the market, and its size and shape would be ideal for a baby’s small hands to grasp.

Sophie la girafe®, who looked exactly the same then as she does today, went into production on Thursday 25th May, 1961, hence her name.

Made from 100% natural rubber derived from the sap of the Hevea tree, Sophie’s flexible, renewable, natural materials and non-toxic paint mean she is a safe and natural teething toy for your little one.

To this day, Sophie la girafe is still “traditionally” produced, a process that involves more than 14 manual operations.
