Some Frequently asked questions:
Paint on Sophie the Giraffe
The food-grade paint on Sophie the Giraffe is mineral based and safe for baby to chew and suck on. It is normal for the paint to gradually wear off. For this reason we do not replace Sophies with worn and faded paint.
How to look after Sophie?
Clean with a damp cloth and soapy water. Do not immerse Sophie in water as this will damage the squeaker. Don’t sterilise it by boiling or microwaving it (it could damage the natural rubber and the squeaker).
Why do Sophies differ in appearance?
Some customers comment that their Sophie looks different from their friend’s one. Sophie is handmade and hand painted so that’s why they all look a bit different. We’d recommend you have a look at the movie on how Sophie is made below.
We have just discovered the video about how Sophie the Giraffe is made by hand in France, it's worth watching! Very interesting to get an insider's view of the production process.
