I had received a Vulli Sophie the Giraffe teether for my son off my gift registry. He was about 5 and a half months old and was lying on his stomach, chewing on the toy. I heard a gurgling noise and looked down and saw that he had shoved the front leg of the giraffe so far back in his throat that it caused him to vomit. I immediately pulled the giraffe out of his mouth and took it away. Further research showed many similar reports on the internet, as well as reports of the leg actually blocking babies' airways.
