The Only Distributor of Sophie the Giraffe in Australia


Sophie the Giraffe is a staple toy for babies in France… you’ll find one in almost every home!

But when best friends Isabelle Gardy and Cecille Boston moved to Australia, they found that Sophie hadn’t made her way down under yet.

So in 2006, Les Folies was launched down under … and the company is now the exclusive Australian distributor of Sophie the Giraffe.

Sophie the Giraffe is one of the most recognisable baby toys in the world. Since 1961, Sophie has been lovingly handmade using 100% natural rubber derived from the latex of the Hevea tree.

The original Sophie is made with soft and knobbly bits to help soothe your baby’s sore gums. It is also the perfect shape for little hands and completely safe to chew.

What Makes Sophie the Giraffe Different?


We all know that babies put everything in their mouth. Sophie is truly safe to chew, thanks to it being 100% natural rubber and decorated with edible paint.

Sophie is one of the only toys available that stimulates each of the five senses in your baby:

  • Sight – the dark and contrasting spots
  • Hearing – the squeak stimulates hearing
  • Smell – natural rubber from the Hevea tree has a unique smell
  • Taste – perfect for chewing and soothing sore gums
  • Touch – thanks to its easy to hold shape

Fantastic site! I am a huge fan and supporter of Babynest! A friend of mine first recommended me to the site when I was looking to buy some items to put together a baby shower pack. Now, as an expecting first time mum I have decided to purchase what I can from BabyNest because of how happy I was with the price and delivery last time. I have a huge list of items I’ve compiled in order to take part in the free shipping over $100 option – I’m just about ready to place my order! I would and definitely do recommend this site to everyone looking for well priced, great quality items!
