Happy Birthday to Sophie la girafe! How old is Sophie you ask? She is 55 years old believe it or not!
"First created in France in 1961, Sophie la girafe®, a high-end, all-natural rubber baby teether, is a fixture in nurseries all over the world. A favorite among moms, Sophie is a popular shower gift, and has garnered praise from parents everywhere.".... Now the French character is the star of story time. Babies everywhere will love the multisensory board books, such as Peekaboo Sophie!” - Parents Magazine"
My daughter had one of the Sophie teething toys. How fun that there are now books dedicated to this beloved icon. I'm excited to be sharing them with my grandson. I also have a copy to share with you too - scroll to the bottom to enter to win a Sophie book)
DK Canada is the publisher of the Sophie books - full list can be seen here.
I've added two Sophie titles to little guy's library. The first one is Sophie's Big Noisy Day Book!
The other new addition to little guy's bookshelf is Sophie Pop-up Peekaboo. As I mentioned, he loves peekaboo, so this was an easy choice. Where is Sophie? We meet the other characters as they search for her. This book also has flaps to lift and the most wonderful pop-ups - a toy box, laundry basket, bathtub, apple tree and one last hiding place. Again, many, many flaps were lifted - the pop ups absolutely fascinated him.
The colours are lovely in both books, they're sturdy and honestly - quite timeless! Two thumbs up from little guy and Gramma. Keep up with Sophie's birthday fun on Twitter. #sophielagirafebirthday
