The little giraffe was born on 25th May in the year 1961… Saint Sophie’s day!
In those days, the only animal toys available were farm animals and pet figures …
That is why one day in France, a certain Monsieur Rampeau, who was an expert in transforming sap from the Hevea tree using the rotational moulding of rubber as a toy-making concept, came up with the idea of designing a giraffe. Such an exotic wildlife figure would be a first on the market, and its size and shape would be ideal for a baby’s small hand to grasp.
Sophie la giraffe, who looked exactly the same then as she does today, went into production on a Thursday 25th May, hence her name.
She was an immediate success. Young mothers immediately saw that she was a must for their children…
By simple word of mouth, the little giraffe’s fame spread Worldwide
Vulli a company based in Rumilly, France which is located in the Haute-Savoie region,
has continued to keep the highly guarded secret of how this wonder toy is made.
Sophie la giraffe is still “traditionally” produced to this day. This process involves more than 14 manual operations.
Sophie la giraffe is made from 100% natural rubber derived from the sap of the Hevea tree.
