Going Loopy's Sophie Saver Review

Any parent with an infant is certain to be familiar with Sophie the Giraffe.  Sophie was first introduced 40 years ago in France and is now loved by babies and parents around the world.  Sophie is made from 100% natural rubber and non-toxic paint.

I too could not wait to get a Sophie when I found out I was expecting a third baby (I didn't know about her when the twins were born).  I was shocked to see that Sophie, a rubber chew toy, sells for roughly $21.99 in stores; and yet, I had to have one.

What I didn't love, was the risk of losing Sophie.  Unfortunately, Pickle LOVES her giraffe and it goes everywhere with us.  Luckily, I came across Going Loopy and their Sophie Saver!

This wonderful invention has saved me countless times when Pickle has tried to toss Sophie out of the carseat and/or stroller.  The Sophie Saver is a simple, yet genius concept; made from a 17" long grosgrain ribbon that is 5/8" wide.  There is a metal clip on one end that is lead-free and has plastic "teeth" to protect clothing and fabrics.  On the other end you'll find a loop to fit around Sophie and you can adjust the size of the loop with a plastic toggle.  I can attach Sophie to just about anything from the lining of Pickle's carseat, to a strap or article of clothing.  I've even attached it to a shopping cart by simply wrapping the ribbon around the handle and attaching the clip to the ribbon on the other side.  I'm no longer afraid that I'm going to lose Sophie or that she's going to fall on the floor.  Oh, and did I mention, the Sophie Saver is multi-functional?  Not only will it keep Sophie attached, but I can later use it to attach sippy cups and anything else that I can fit into it's loop!

A Sophie Saver is a MUST for any parent with a Sophie toting child.

The Sophie Saver is designed and made by a Deb, a stay-at-home-mom (SAHM) of two.  She puts passion and love into every item she makes and is absolutely wonderful to deal with.  Going Loopy also makes other items for baby; including: Sippy Savers, Loopy Lovies and Soother Savers.

I did not receive monetary compensation for this review. I purchased the above product mentioned for my own use and loved it so much I then contacted the manufacturer about writing a review based on my experience with the product. All opinions expressed are 100% mine and completely honest.
