Shop All Vulli + Sophie la Giraffe
Sophie la giraffe, who looked exactly the same as she does today, went into production on a Thursday, May 25th, 1961 hence her name.
Vulli, a company based in Rumilly in the Haute-Savoie region of France has continued to keep the highly guarded secret of how this wonder toy is made.
To this day, Sophie la giraffe is still traditionally produced, a process that involves more than 14 manual operations.
She is made from 100% natural rubber derived from the latex of the Hevea tree.
