love giraffe's. Whether live at the zoo, stuffed animals or even cakes
(obviously). Well maybe I don't love them as much as my friend Kristi's
mom who has lots of giraffe statues and such, but I do think they are
I recently joined this group on a website titled
Moms4mom. I'd say I'm slightly
addicted with potential for mass addiction. Luke turned me on to it
today and I'd like to say thank you. :)
On this website mom's sign up to ask questions, answer question, vote on
answers and the like. It's also a little bit on the nerdy side because
it gives out achievement awards like on X-Box. Hence the addiction part.
ANYWAY - A recent question from a mom was "What are some good baby
shower gifts" She goes on to elaborate
"As a new mom I often have friends that ask me what would be a good
baby shower gift? I would like to use establish a good list. As a mom
what are things that you found to be the most useful? Please list one
thing per answer so that they can easily be voted up or down. Feel
free to post as many answers as you would like."
Well I was reading through the list of responses and I found this:
"Sophie the giraffe is great. Especially when babies are teething or
just learning to grasp things."
Website Price: \$21.99
Seriously?! 20 bucks for a chew toy?! The Saturday Night Live skit of
"Really?!? with Seth & Amy is running through my head right now.
Really!?! This is a toy targeted solely for the purposes of teething.
Here is the website description:
Born in 1961, her success is legendary in France. Made in the French
Alps with natural rubber and non-toxic paint, Sophie has been safely
cuddled and chewed for over 40 years! She is soft, light, and easy to
grasp and fits perfectly into little hands. Sophie is loveable and
amusing. She even makes a happy sound when squeezed. Babies especially
love her bumpy head to soothe their teething gums.
I do have to admit she is very cute and that I am quite curious as to
what her "happy sound" is like. And wow, 40 years?! Really!?!
Well now despite that I have totally made fun of her I do wish to ask
one thing of you. If you have had any experience with Sophie I want to
hear about it!
