What's So Great About Sophie?

Sophie the Giraffe is THE most popular baby toy.  EVER.

I have no proof of this (none whatsoever), but I'm making a very educated guess that she's in the top 10.  I spot this damn giraffe everywhere.  She's in the hands of nearly every baby I see, drool covered and dopey looking.  I swear I see her every day.  Sometimes more than once a day (I live in a highly baby populated neighborhood).  If Sophie the Giraffe were to rob me, I would have no problem describing her in perfect detail to the assigned detective and if she were in a line up with several other like sized rubber giraffes, I would have no problem pointing her out.  I could identify those rosy cheeks and that showy pose anywhere.

Have you seen her?  Do you know who I'm talking about?  

She's been around the block
in a stroller or two...

Little known facts about Sophie the Giraffe:
  • She's French (Sophie La Girafe)
  • She's 50 (Born in 1961)
  • She competes with Freddie the Firefly for top teether, but there really is no competition

Sophie Sighting!

Although I am a bit embarrassed to admit it, I recent watched the movie "Three Men and a Baby" (yes it was still amazing!) and noticed that Tom Selleck buys a Sophie for the baby at a newspaper stand! I'm sure he didn't spend 15$!
