Sophie the Giraffe is safe for babies to chew on because it's made of natural rubber, and that's the company's claim to fame. THIS TOY IS NOT RUBBER!
I could tell immediately out of the box. A quick internet search turned up disturbing evidence that it might be made of PVC. Hello?!? Considering they're marketing it as age-appropriate for 6 months and older, and that it looks so much like the safe giraffe, I would assume any baby would naturally chew on it. Bad news for baby-- and shame on the company.
We're returning it and not buying from Vulli again.
I got no stink from the box when I took her out and per the Vulli website it looks like she like the original is phlatalate free, [...]
comparison to the regular Sophie teether.
The bath toy:
-Half the size
-The legs are all one piece instead of 4 individual pieces
-The ring does not come off
-The material is not as soft or flexible
-Does not make any noise when you squeeze it
-Even when not used as a squirt toy, water will get in and have to get squeezed out regularly
My 5 month old son does like this toy though he gets a little frustrated after a while cause it isn't really a teether and he's used to being able to get one of Sophies legs into his mouth. I'm sure he'll like it even more once he's able to use it as a squirter which is what it actually is. All in all, it is still a good quality toy that I trust and would recommend it to others.
UPDATE MARCH 2011:
So, in trying to get the water out after a bath the other night, I squeezed Sophie's head and caused a slight tear around her mouth. Didn't think it was possible based on what I thought was great quality. I wont completely blame Sophie since It was actually me doing the squeezing but still. Oh well, we'll continue to use as is.
I understand that babies (especially teething babies) tend to put EVERYTHING in their mouths, and I understand wanting to be sure that the toys they will be chewing on are made of safe materials. However, given that my son is exposed to this toy only at bath time, and only under adult supervision, I was not overly concerned about it, especially since I could find no evidence that the toy was made out of anything harmful. In fact that ended up being a moot point because although my son is 7 months, and chews on everything, he somehow doesn't find this toy pleasant to teethe on (yes, I let him try when he was playing with it).
I will admit that this toy does have some flaws: If you are looking for it to float around in the tub neatly, it doesn't do that (unless partially filled with water). It's not for teething on, and it's not easy for very small babies to squirt by themselves.
That being said, I still think this is a fantastic toy!
So why do I think this toy merits a 5-star review, given all its flaws? Because it is by far the toy we play with the most at bathtime. I love filling it with water and squirting my son with it, and he always shrieks with giggles and tries to grab it and dunk it under water (it has the best squirting range of any of the bath toys we have). If it's on the other side of the tub, it's the toy he reaches for, and it's the one I play with myself when he's distracted.Read more ›
