A brand new, limited edition Sophie la Girafe has been launched to mark the nursery icon’s 60th Anniversary.

The brand new ‘Sophie By Me’ special edition was voted for by thousands of fans around the world and the new print features the words je t’❤️ Sophie, in pale pink on the front, with a heart design and number 60 on the back. 

Suitable for ages 0 months + just 125,000 of the exclusive Sophie By Me toys have been produced, with only 5,000 available in the UK, making this truly unique edition of the charming girafe rather special indeed. 

During her 60 year reign, Sophie la girafe (the Queen of teething!),  has been trusted by millions of parents to soothe gums and bring joy to little ones. Made from 100% natural rubber derived from the sap of the Hevea tree, Sophie’s flexible, natural materials and food grade non-toxic paint mean she is one of the safest and most natural teethers. It’s no wonder the iconic toy has garnered a global following and become adored by many.

Staying true to her heritage, Sophie By Me has been produced traditionally in France, just like the original. Using the same method that was developed 60 years ago, she is created following a closely guarded process involving 14 manual operations. 

Commenting on the limited edition design, Lorraine from 1 two KIDS, Sophie’s UK distributor said: 

“Sophie is the world’s bestselling teething toy for very good reason. Honouring  this milestone by creating a celebratory  design, with the help of her fans around the globe, has been the most wonderful way to celebrate 60 years of the nursery hero! With just 5,000 Sophie By Me’s on sale here in the UK, one thing’s for certain – they won’t be around long!”
