Sophie the Giraffe!

For months I have read so many great reviews about a certain teething toy called "Sophie the Giraffe." Mom's on message boards RAVED about how much their baby loved this toy. I decided to look into it-at first glance this toy looks completely ancient, but the cuteness of the giraffe kinda grew on me the more I looked at it online.

Here are the benefits of Sophie:
Sight: The dark and contrasting spots all over Sophie's body provide visual stimulation and make her easily recognizable to baby. She soon becomes a familiar and reassuring object.
Hearing: Her squeaker keeps baby amused, stimulates his hearing, and helps him to understand the link between cause & effect.
Taste: Sophie is very flexible and has lots of parts for baby to chew (ears, horns, legs). She is perfect for soothing baby's sore gums when teething and is completely safe. Made of 100% natural rubber and food paint.
Touch: Sophie is perfect for baby's small hands. She is very light and her long legs and neck are easy for baby to grip. She is very sofy to the touch, just like mommy, stimulating soothing physiological and emotional responses.
Smell: The singular scent of natural rubber (from the Hevea tree) makes Sophie the Giraffe very special and easy for you child to identify amid all his other toys.

So once Dominic started gnawing & gumming on everything, and his current teething toys are too heavy & awkward for him to hold for long periods--we decided to give Sophie a shot! Yesterday Sophie moved into our house! We quickly opened the box and handed her over to Dominic. He immediately grabbed her by the neck and started sucking on her ears! This morning I took some pictures of Dominic playing with his new toy!! Success!!

I didn't want to crack under the pressure, but I may have to purchase one of these as well. Amelia is chewing on everything she can get her hands on. :)
