Sophie the Giraffe Teether
Sophie the Giraffe is babys first sensory development toy, stimulating each of his senses from the age of 3 months.
Sight: At the age of 3 months, a babys eyesight is still limited and he can only make out high contrasts. The dark and contrasting attention-catching spots all over Sophie the Giraffes body provide visual stimulation and she soon becomes a familiar and reassuring object for baby.
Hearing: Her squeaker keeps baby amused, stimulates his hearing and then later, helps him to understand the link between cause and effect.
Taste: Sophie the Giraffe is made of 100% natural rubber and food paint, and is completely safe to chew, just like a feeding bottle teat. Her soft texture and numerous chewable parts (ears, horns, and legs) make her perfect for soothing babys sore gums when teething.
Touch: Touch is the first means baby has of communicating with the outside world. Sophie the Giraffes soft feel is just like mummys skin stimulating soothing physiological and emotional responses that soothe baby.
Smell: The singular scent of natural rubber (from the Hevea tree) makes Sophie the Giraffe very special and easy for your child to identify amid all his other toys.
EASY TO GRIP: Sophie the Giraffes shape and 18cm size are perfect for babys small hands. She is very light and her long legs and neck are easy for baby to grip, even from his earliest days.
