    anyone else's sophie's paint come off? Leo's only got today and has only been sucking the ear for about 10 min's but i think the paint is coming off so i.ve taken it off him. If i scratch it with my nail it comes off? Is this normal?

    I would imagine it is safe with it being a baby toy but I still wouldnt be impressed. Ive just ordered one for my LO, should be here tomorrow.

    I'm sure I read somewhere that it's edible paint? I might be wrong though!

    it's a bit rubbish that it comes off, he,s only had it 10 minutes! Literally! But he loves it. Alot of money for the paint to come straight off.

    Yes that is pretty silly that it comes right off like that. Although I suppose the extra chemicals they would have to use to make it stay on better would make it unsafe to chew on :shrug:

    There was a post on here not long ago about somewhere selling fake Sophies- their spots were a darker colour than the real ones (a brown colour instead of lighter fawn colour) and the paint flaked/rubbed off. Where did you buy it from? X
