Maybe it's the texture of her “skin,” or the feel of her nubby horns on sore gums. Perhaps she's extra-alluring because she comes from the French Alps. Whatever the reason, babies loooove Sophie. And, since this giraffe teether is made of natural rubber, food paint, and no toxic gunk whatsoever, we moms are pretty much nuts about her too. Plus, there are chewable appendages sticking out every which way, a squeaker in the body to keep baby amused, and she's just the right size for a baby's grip. Now, you won't find Sophie in the $0.99 (or $10) bins, but trust me, the moment of silence is worth the twenty bucks.
