Life With Sophie & Fanfan

Yesterday I posted about the 9 Must Haves for Long Distance Grandparents. I didn’t include these two in the list, but I’ll tell you my Grandboys don’t go anywhere without them.

Who knew this unsuspecting giraffe and inconspicuous fawn would play such a big role in our lives. They’re part of the family now!

They don’t look like much, they’re a bit expensive, but I tell you my Grandboys love them! Just look at Manny…

I love the caption my son put on this instagram photo: “My boy is on this giraffe’s feet like he’s cleaning a rib!” His wife corrected him “It’s a fawn!” Haha! Manny’s cousin has the giraffe.

So, if you’re wondering what might be a good gift for a teething age kid, get Fanfan the Fawn or Sophie the Giraffe! (And I’m not getting paid for this plug! That’s how great they are!)

*Since posting this, a fellow blogging friend told me about an article about the possibility of mold growing inside these precious creatures. Here’s a link to an article http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2017/01/17/worried-mold-childs-sophie-giraffe-teething-toy-mold-clean-products-bleach/96662480/

While it is gross to think about, a pediatrician was quoted in the article as saying, “The good news is while the mold looks yucky and is distressful, for most healthy kids the mold itself doesn’t pose a bad health effect,” Moorjani said.

I will tell my girls about it and if they feel they need to give the toy up, there will be weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth (literally)!

Peace,

Jill

  1. I’m not sure if you saw the article but some mums have found mold inside sofie even after following the washing directions and not submerging in water. I promptly checked mine and decided it was time to part with her.

      1. I know. My little girl LOVED her Sophie! It helped so so much when she started teething but after I saw the article I just couldn’t give it to her anymore.

  2. I have seen the mold warnings; I just assumed to treat it like those nose suckers. Replace them after a few months!

    Also, Fan Fan and Sophie are $24. I recently found that Target has a brand called Infantino that makes a monkey and an elephant version that’s only $12. We now have coco the monkey too 😜
