i saw a vintage sophie over the thanksgiving holiday. she belonged to a boy who is now about 14. her spots were a bit darker and her squeaker was much louder, but all in all she was the same lil' sophie that lucy knows and loves.
our personal sophie got chewed on by lucy's 4 year-old cousin over the holiday, too. since emma is 4 and all, i thought i'd ask her just what was so great about this specific toy. the conversation went something like this:
me: "emma, do you like chewing on lucy's sophie?"
emma: (with sophie leg in her mouth). "uh-huh." (squeak).
me: "why do you like it so much?"
emma: "it swkeek in my teef!"
cuteness. if you're looking for a wonderful gift for a little chomper this holiday, sophie can be purchased for $20 through the hunger site, and they will fund 50 cups of food to people in need as part of the purchase.
