We were thrilled to receive an honorable mention last year, thanks to your gracious support. While we spend our days working hard to bring unknown and unique items to the Kalamazoo area for you (not for an award), it's the award recognition that helps increase our name recognition in the area, giving us even more ability to bring new and never before seen items to the shop for you to peruse.

and is now a part of our product offering at Initial Attraction.
Slender, flexible, and soft,
baby can squeeze and chew her in complete safety.
Sophie stimulates and appeals to babies' five senses:
Sight: The dark and contrasting spots all over Sophie the Giraffe's body provide visual stimulation and make her easily recognizable to baby. She soon becomes a familiar and reassuring object.
Hearing: Her squeaker keeps baby smused, stimulates hearing, and helps him to understand the link between cause and effect.
Taste: Sophie the Giraffe is very flexible and has lots of parts for baby to chew (ears, horns, legs). She is perfect for soothing baby's sore gums when teething and is completely safe. Made of 100% Natural Rubber (BPA, phthalates free) and food paint.
Touch: Sophie the Giraffe is perfect for baby's small hands. She is very light and her long legs and neck are easy for baby to grip. She is very soft to the touch, just like mom, stimulating soothing physiological and emotional responses.
Smell: The singular scent of natural rubber (from the Hevea tree) makes Sophie the Giraffe very special and easy for your child to dentify amid all his other toys.
