The little giraffe was born on 25th May in the year 1961... Saint Sophie's day! One day in France, a certain Monsieur RAMPEAU, who was an expert in transforming 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
She was an immediate success. Young mothers straightaway saw that she was a must for their children... When the first signs of teething appear, Sophie the Giraffe helps baby stop crying!
She hasn't dated in the slightest... More than 50 million Sophies have been sold... She is an undisputed star for the very young.
