Sophie the Giraffe
Sophie the Giraffe
Sophie the Giraffe’s story is a simple one. Born on the 25th May 1961, this is now known as Saint Sophie’s Day. Back in those days, the only animal toys that were available to children were farm animals and pet figures.
So one day Monsieur Rampeau, who was an expert in transforming the sap from a hevea tree as a toy-making concept, came up with the idea of designing a giraffe. This was seen as an exotic wildlife figure to first be on the market. But its size and shape would be ideal for baby’s small hands to grasp.
She was immediately a huge success. Young mothers instantly recognised that she was a must for their children. As soon as the first signs of teeth started coming through Sophie was there to stop babies from crying!
VULLI, a company based in Rumilly in the Haute-Savoie region of France has continued to the highly-guarded secret of how this wonderful toy is made. And to this day Sophie the Giraffe is still traditionally produced, a process that involves more than 14 manual operations.
