Sophie the Giraffe is always the winner in our house. The little lady uses her for gnawing on when she has sore gums, she can cleverly squeak her using one hand (by bending her neck back!) and for taking on trips out to friends or the park. Unfortunately, so many of her friends have them I had to write down the serial number in my phone as we've had a few mix-ups and it's very difficult to try and work out which one is yours (slightly pinker cheeks?? darker spots?? higher-pitched squeak??).
Last month Sophie turned 50 (this post is a bit late!) and to mark the occasion, Vulli asked designers, celebrities and actors to create their own interpretations, which were then sold at auction for charity. My favourites are the more textile/print ones above, but to see them all click here.
