Sophie the Giraffe : a 100% natural rubber toy

Latex from the rubber tree (HEVEA) was first processed in 1928 using the vulcanization invented by Mr Charles Goodyear.

The rubber used by Vulli comes from the HEVEA trees (rubber trees) that grow in Malaysia. Every morning, before the daytime heat sets in, the milky liquid that oozes from the cells beneath the bark is collected from these millions of HEVEA trees. This liquid is known as "latex".

Latex is natural, elastic and water-resistant, acts as an insulator, is pleasant to the touch and smells nice.

Vulli takes this latex, heats it, and then applies a special process and rotational moulding technique. The result after 14 manual operations is the wonderful little "Sophie the Giraffe".

Sophie the Giraffe, full of discoveries and activities to awaken baby's senses!

Sight: The dark and contrasting spots all over Sophie the Giraffe'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 hearings, and helps him to understand the link between cause and effect.

Taste: Sophie the Giraffe 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 the Giraffe 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 soft to touch, just like baby's mummy, stimulating soothing physiological and emotional responses.

Smell: The singular scent of natural rubber (from Hevea tree) makes Sophie the Giraffe very special and easy for your child to identify amid all his other toys.
