My friend wrote about this french giraffe here. I have other friends who have raved about this seemingly innocuous teething toy, so when I got a Babies R Us gift card I decided to try Sophie out. I was hoping when the time came that it would help Evie through teething. What I didn’t expect was Oz’s reaction. I hadn’t even opened the outside envelope before Oz was frantic at my feet. I took the toy out and he started dancing on his hind legs and whining, desperate to have this giraffe for himself. I hid it in the closet when he wasn’t looking and two seconds later he was sitting outside the closet door looking expectant. When I opened the door he rushed in and started hopping around, nose in the air, sniffing out Sophie. He’s found it every time we hide it. I have no idea what magical crack like substance could be making this giraffe so appealing, but I have a feeling this thing will end up in Oz’s clutches one way or another. He’s been pretty good about not messing with the baby stuff so far, but apparently Sophie is his weakness….Sophie and pacifiers, but that’s another story.
