Made using 100% natural rubber and edible paint, Fanfan the fawn is the first toy for babies younger than 3 months that stimulates all their senses.
The dark, contrasting and eye-catching spots all over his body provide visual stimulation and make him easily recognisable to baby. He soon becomes a familiar and reassuring objet. His squeaker keeps baby amused, develops his hearing and helps him to understand the link between cause and effect.
He is very flexible and has lots of parts for baby to chew (ears, legs, and so on). He is perfect for soothing baby’s sore gums when teething.
He is perfect for baby’s small hands. He is very light and his long legs and neck are easy for baby to grip. The reassuring, soothing softness of 100% rubber reminds baby of his mum’s skin.
The delicious, singular scent of natural rubber (from the Hevea tree) makes him very special and easy for your child to identify amid all his other toys. Fanfan the fawn is the perfect toy for developing your baby’s senses.
One day in France, a certain Monsieur RAMPEAU, who was an expert in transforming the latex from the HEVEA tree using the rotational moulding of rubber as a toy-making concept, came up with the idea of designing a giraffe. Such an exotic wildlife figure would be a first on the market, and its size and shape would be ideal for a baby's small hand to grasp.
Sophie la Girafe®, who looked exactly the same as she does today, went into production on Thursday May the 25th.
To this day, Sophie la Girafe® is still traditionally produced, a process that involves more than 14 manual operations.
She is made from 100% natural rubber derived from the latex of the Hevea tree.
