There's Something About Sophie.

When mom's on the message boards said their babies loooooved Sophie the Giraffe, I thought I couldn't deprive Charlie of this wonder toy. I gave it to Charlie and he was so not interested in it. At all. I kept trying to make him like it because I paid $15 for it and its basically a dog toy. A plastic toy with a squeaker in it. Buddy goes NUTS over Sophie. Do not squeak her in his presence or we will all be sorry. I decided all the moms were lying because they felt silly buying such an extravagent piece of cr*p, I mean, piece of rubber. My friend Sarah has one and I asked her what the big deal was and she said "it's French." I said "no really, what is the big deal about Sophie?" Again she replied, "it's French." Hmm....

Well, I kind of gave up on little miss Sophie from Paris until I saw Charlie finally came around. Maybe there is something to this Sophie business after all.

mmmm i'm with your early thoughts on sophie. i'm still hoping she'll come around to makeing lovie's day but for now, i still think it was a waste of $15.

If you got Sophie for $15 then you actually got a bargain. We got one from Brian's cousin while in San Diego and he left the price tag on it and he paid $24.95 for the darn rubber toy. Then the friends that we stayed with decided that they too needed one b/c of all the hype around it and I think that they paid $22.95 for it. Personally I too think it's a rip off and don't understand the thrill about having it.

You're right, Katie. I forgot I got it on sale at Amazon. I guess if he enbds up loooving it then its worth it but next time
I might just give him a dog toy!

I am actually thinking the same thing about Sophie...but I keep trying...She LOVES the sound but has really gotten into holding onto her or chewing on her...we'll get there I guess.

Um...so if you're from France, that's a good thing? :)

Maybe she doesn't lose her "whistle" so easily like a dog's toy might...ok, I am rationlizing...

Ah, yes. The Sophie. G NEVER took to it.
Here he is slamming the giraffe around http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bp5xKjB5qc0 . It was about the most action the two of them ever got together.
