The site claims the toy is very safe and that celebs and their babes cant get enough of it. I have one, well, L does. She got it from my longtime BFF. Her daughter  also has a Sophie the Giraffe. Well, HAD is more like it. If You have this toy in your house, PLEASE BEHEAD IT NOW. My friends daughter choked on the  things head. Yes, it’s soft and babies love to bite it. Babies can also fit the whole head of the giraffe in their mouth, when they have bitten down on it and the head goes flat. Then, the head can INFLATE in the babies mouth obstructing the child’s airway. This toy is dangerous and these toys may be in a baby’s crib or in the backseat with the baby in the carseat, anywhere where the baby is unsupervised, even for a few moments if this toy is around.
