In those days, only pets or farm animals were represented in the world of toys. Then, one day in France, a certain Mr. Rampeau, specialist in transforming the latex from the hevea tree using a rotational moulding of rubber as a toy-making concept, had the idea to design a giraffe. This exotic representation was the first of its kind on the market! Its size and shape were ideally suited for baby to grasp. The first Sophie la girafe went in the production on Thursday, May 25th hence the original of her name. She was an immediate success. Right from the beginning, young parents recognised something in her that was essential for their Baby. When the first signs of teething appear, Baby stops crying thanks to Sophie la girafe! By simple word of mouth, the little giraffe’s fame spread. Throughout the world, generations of children will love hearing Sophie la girafe squeak whenever they press her tummy or head. The Vulli company located in Rumilly in Haute-Savoie (France) jealously guards the secret of how this iconic toy is made. Calisson Toys is the Official US Distributor of Sophie la girafe. contact@calissonincwholesale.com sophielagirafe-usa.com
