    Aisling is teething and none of the teethers I've got work, she just won't put them in her mouth. I've heard a bit about Sophie the Giraffe but to me it just looks like a very expensive dog toy! :blush:

    Does anyone know if this is worth getting, especially at the price?

    Absolutely fantastic! LO loves his Sophie, it is the only toy his chews on. I had a nibble too, it does seem nicer than his other chews. It is the perfect shape and size for holding. I wouldn't have bought it, but Mum thought it sounded good, and I'm very impressed. For us, definitely worth it, I'll hold on to it for any more LO's I might have.

    I do not own one but my brother has one for his daughter and my cousin has one for her son and both babies seem to love it. When Marley visits it's the first thing she wants to play with. A lot of people say it's worth the money.

    About £12 in most shops (13ish Euros). How much are they there? Do most babies really have one?

    :rofl: I've been afraid my dogs would play with it too! I know the price isn't extortionate, it just seems so expensive for a squeaky toy! But if it works...

    Dogs?! Squeaky dog toys tend to drive me nuts so I've never let mine have any - hopefully they won't think it's for them! :lol:

    lol... seriously, sophie is like an over priced dog toy. Same material, same squeeker.. Jasmine did love it when we had it, but as soon as my back was turned our dog had it. So I havent bought another, too much money just for him to chew up.

    Nevere heard of it but I don't think £12 is that much tbh. You have to remember with kids toys it's quality not quantity. By that I mean you should spend money on toys which are worth while and not just gonna be chucked in the toy box mand forgotten. So if it works then it's gotta be £12 worth spending xxx

    We have one, we call it out "Meltdown adverter".

    It's what we give her when she's about to LOSE it. It is very much like a Dog Toy, but we make sure that our dog doesn't get to it. Mainly we use it when we are out and about. It is good, the shape of it is easy for LOs to grasp.

    If my dog chewed it, I'm unsure if I'd get another. Hard to say! :shrug: They are expensive to be constantly replacing.

    We've been really lucky, our dog went mad for sophie as soon as we got it, now he doesnt flicker.
    I think it helps as he doesnt have any squeeky toys as its pointless with a staffy they only last 2 mins!

    I have to say sophie does seem rather like a dog toy, but she keeps LO happy! :D
