The world of baby toys can be a pretty scary place. Tongue-twisting chemicals — say “phthalates” and “bisphenol-A” three times fast — sound foreboding. Then along comes sweet Francophile Sophie, the all-natural rubber teether found in A-list baby bags all over Hollywood. Sophie’s rubber makeup derives from the sap of the Hevea tree and her spots are splotched on with food-grade paint, so when your baby puts her in his mouth, there’s no need to summon Poison Control. At close to $20, the spotted giraffe with the sweet smile costs double, if not triple, what a generic teether might set you back. But with Sophie, you’re getting status. Nicole Richie’s daughter and Kate Hudson’s son both drooled on their Sophies, and your kid can too.
