I can't explain the Sophie the giraffe phenomena but its real. The website claims this is the "most popular teething toy available," is made 100% natural, by hand and the design or manufacturing hasn't changed in 50 years. There is something to be said about a tried and true toy. Sophie also stimulates touch, taste, sight, smell and hearing. WOW! I would describe the toy as a little plastic giraffe that has a squeak feature, makes Brooklyn drool a lot and keeps her entertained for a really, really long time. She will sit and just chew, chew, chew or roll around on the ground chewing the toy at every angle.
These are some older picture of Brooklyn but she looked so cute chewing on her sophie I had to put them up.
