sophie the giraffe scare - update with info on being pulled from shelves

so i finally broke down and bought mia a sophie because she was teething. naturally, she loved it, which made me feel better about spending $20 on it Chat Icon

but just about 15 mins ago, i heard her spitting up and noticed sophie's leg was caught in her throat. mia was choking, all the color gone from her already pale white face. i pulled sophie out and mia threw up everywhere. she is fine now, i have been making her laugh and everything but i'm nervous to give it back to her :(

needless to say, i am off to sign up for an infant cpr class to refresh my memory (i've been certified before).

ETA: i can't stop thinking about what would have happened if i wasn't in the room. if i had been making dinner in the other room, like i was 10mins before. i wrote Vulli an email last night, and i am waiting for a response. it is now my mission to let everyone know about this hazard.

ETA: click to learn more, it was recalled

i did a quick search and learned that sophie was pulled from the shelves of TOYS R US in canada for the exact reason. now i'm FUMING wondering why it wasn't a COMPANY recall.

Re: sophie the giraffe scare

If you read some reviews on Sophie this HAS HAPPENED TO PARENTS IN THE PAST...the first time I gave her to Lara I was petrified now that she is a little older I am less anxious about her chewing on her.

you know what's sad shana? is that you're 100% correct. i was so scared, as was she. i keep checking on her to make sure there isn't anything that causes any problems while she sleeps.
