The Chan Pie Gnon line features mushroom-shaped toys that play on “champignon,” the French word for “mushroom.” Chan, Pie and Gnon styles are available, and are free of BPA and phthalates, created as a safe chew toy for baby. These natural rubber toys squeak when squeezed. — VULLI, the classic French nursery and toy company, has found great success with Sophie the Giraffe. The rubber toy won a spot on ASTRA’s Best Toys for Kids List and is flying off shelves. Customers familiar with Sophie will find that the three varieties of Chan Pie Gnon are made with the same natural rubber. The varied tops of the toys provide soothing relief for teething babies, and parents need not worry since the plastic and paints are non-toxic. Reviewers on Amazon.com rated Chan Pie Gnon an average of more than four stars out of five, though they warn against submerging the toy in water or getting it too close to a dog accustomed to playing with chew toys.
