Those of you that know me (Faith) know that I’ve ♥ loved Sophie for a VERY long time. She celebrated her 50th Birthday this year and we celebrated it with her. She is definitely world renowned star. Sophie not me. Check out the press on this beautiful giraffe teething toy.
There are so many other great products but Sophie will always have my ♥ heart and now she has a house. You’ll have to check out Sophie’s House which is amazing. They didn’t have these back in the 80′s and that meant that when you were too old to be teething on a chew toy your dad would tell you that Casper the Friendly Ghost took him. Then you would wonder how come you couldn’t see your beloved Sophie and ask well Casper is a Ghost but Sophie isn’t. Then your dad would respond with, “Well, she certainly is the same color as a ghost now she has no more spots.” Even at 4, no child is that gullible. So, now children don’t have to fear their security blankets being taken away. They can grow up with Sophie and carry her in her very own little house complete with a sun and a moon. Let’s not forget that it also has daisies which is another favorite thing of mine.
While you’re there don’t forget about the Chan Pie Gnons to your left which are probably one of the top selling products for Calisson, Inc.
The Chan Pie Gnon rattle keys are not only a rattle but a teething toy as well. The bright colors keep a child’s attention as well. They are popping up all over the place.
The main reason I love Sophie the Giraffe USA is because of Helene & Steve Montgomery of Calisson, Inc. They generously have donated to our organization and graciously sponsored the Inaugural SFC Jared C. Monti Memorial Baby Shower earlier this year. Celebrate the Military Child was in the works but had not officially began. Frances and I worked really hard to get it up and running before next year so that the next celebration for expecting moms and newborns up will be a smashing success.
When I spoke with Helene and Steve regarding a donation I was a little nervous. I mean after all, they are POSH LITTLE URBANITES favorite toy. When I spoke to them about our organization and who it was in memory of they shared this with me. Helene and Steve said, “Our family has experienced loss first hand when a cousin serving in Iraq was killed in action. We cannot express how grateful we are to the expectant moms and children for the sacrifices they make during one of the most exciting but stressful times of their lives. The birth of a child is overwhelming and being separated from family and friends with a newborn makes that sacrifice even more humbling. SFC Jared C. Monti died a hero and paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom and all of the United States citizens. No words can express our gratitude but hopefully our contribution in memory of your son will offer some solace. “Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends” John 15:13”
We will always be grateful to Sophie the Giraffe USA for graciously donating to our events but even more so for them recognizing and honoring the sacrifice that is made by our service men and women in uniform. Thank you wouldn’t be enough but we certainly want to thank you for your service and Helene’s family’s service in the French Army as well. I’m so blessed to know the both of you. On behalf of Celebrate the Military Child, the Monti and Ross Families, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
