I don't know what the appeal of this toy is, but my child has loved it. Now she is 1.5 years and loves chewing on her legs as she gets her molars. So I guess it was well worth it!user review

This appears to be an overpriced squeaky dog toy. However, my son does enjoy chewing on it more than some of the other teethers we have. We got this as a gift, but I'm not sure I would have bought it.user review

My daughter LOVED Sophie when she was teething. I had bought my daughter like 5 other teethers and she could care less about I finally broke down and bought her Sophie. So glad I did! I highly recommend this toy! Only reason I gave 4 out of 5 is because of cost...I do wish she was less expensive. user review

Every single baby I've ever met is drawn to Sophie like a magnet! My daughter smiles when she sees Sophie, and at every play group Sophie attends, she is the must-have, fought-over toy. The toy is easy to hold with the long neck, and both ends- the nose on top, the hooves on the bottom- are very chewing friendly. It's a great first toy because it's so easy to grasp and easy to chew Love that it's completely non-toxic. How cool is it that the spots are made out of vanilla? I didn't understand it until I had my own daughter, but now this is on my "must-have" list.user review

For some reason, this is the toy that baby cannot live without. Maybe it's the teething. I think that babies must intuitively know how amazing Paris is and that this French toy reminds them of the city they hope to visit one day. Okay, obviously not but great toy seriously!!!!user review

Sofie is the gift to give. My baby loved her so much for many reasons. First she is easy to "spot" amongst all the toys. She squeaks when you hold her and the neck and legs are perfect for chomping on throughout all the teething stages. I like it because it is all natural and the original design. They made things to last then:)user review

We love Sophie! She is a great travel companion. I serves as a teether and the noise maker is entertaining to my little one. Several moms in our support group have them and their kids love it too:)user review

We bought this for my daughter when she was three months old. She played with it a little, but was not fascinated enough to recommend spending $20 for the toy. user review

My son loves Sophie! At first her face was all he could really get his mouth around, but now that he's older, he loves chewing on her legs and her body. I love that the paint is all made from food and that the toy is not plastic. This is his favorite teething toy, by far. In fact, we have TWO Sophies, I have to for the car, and one for the house. user review

Since then Sophie has become beloved chew toy around the world. Slender, flexible, and soft, baby can squeeze and chew her in complete safety. Made of 100% Natural Rubber (phthalates Free) and food paint. Lovable and amusing, she makes a happy sound when her body is squeezed.
