Sophie the Giraffe

So, I got a Sophie the Giraffe for Jayson to chew on. I was all excited about it since everyone raves about them and it gets like nearly 5 stars on amazon. The only thing I wasn't excited about was the price.
Anyway, so it came in a few days ago and I have to say I was underwhelmed. My son likes the squeaky noise but he's not really into chewing on it. I really kind of think they are a rip off.
I was wondering what other mommies thought of her since she's such a popular toy for babies.

    Ah! Monroe has a Sophie ready and waiting to use.. and he also has a MINI Sophie (they make different ones with a handle for 0-3 months!) ready and waiting too! I can't wait for him to try it out.. all my friends babes LOVE it.. perhaps it will take some getting used to.. like all toys? Since I see Jayson is only 5 months anyways, might take awhile! I think she's pretty cute!

      Sophie has been hit or miss with my 3. Hayden doesn't care for her at all, but she LOVES her food shaped teething toys from Little Toader. They are also only $10 each, so I like the price of them a bit better than Sophie ;)

          I might have to as well because I agree with you.

          Dog toys are cheaper though. Lol
          Actually, some dog toys are rather cute, maybe I should get my son one?
          Just kidding.

          My son seems perfectly content with his cheaper toys. Heehee
          The most expensive one he has costs $14.98, and it plays lullabies and his tummy glows. And, it is a great investment because he can use it well past toddler years.

          I am not cheap; I am frugal.

            I always wondered why it was priced so high ... after seeing it and using it what is your opinion on why it is priced so high?
