Sophie La Girafe the teether is completely safe

In response to comments on social media about Sophie La Girafe, the world-renown, five-decade old teether, local importers Paloma Cosmetics Ltd have issued a statement to ease the mind of parents and to remind us all of the toy’s international-standard safety features.

Sophie La Girafe has been manufactured and distributed by Vulli in France for well over 50 years with the highest safety standards for babies.

Sophie La Girafe is made from 100% pure natural rubber derived from the latex of the Hevea tree and is painted using organic food-grade paints. The teether meets the strictest safety criteria of all the countries in which it is sold, including Malta.

The teether has curved legs which are designed for entire gum chewing and hard-to-reach molars, and is easy to grip even for small baby hands. The soft parts like the ears are designed to sooth the baby’s sore gums. All the design on the giraffe is made from 100% organic natural food paint.

Sophie La Girafe has stood for safety and reliability for over five decades. The handmade teether was designed to relieve the symptoms of teething and stimulates the baby’s senses from as early as 3 months old.

Throughout its half a century existence, Sophie La Girafe has been awarded a number of prestigious awards, including the 2015 Best Baby Toy award in Mom’s Picks Awards (USA), the 2014 Reader’s Favourite award in the Baby and Children’s Product News (USA) and the 2014 Gold award in the Baby Toy under 12 months by Mother & Baby (UK).
