Review

Ana Paula Rimoli is synonymous with amigurumi. Amigurumi Toy Box is her third book of cute crocheted friends. She has also published Amigurumi World and Amigurumi Two! For those of you who don't know what amigurumi is; it is the Japanese art of crocheting small stuffed toys, animals and inanimate objects with facial features. In Japanese "ami" means crocheted and "nuigurumi" means a stuffed doll.

Ana Paula first started crocheting as a child. With two children of her own, she was inspired to create these toys. In this
book there are 25 adorable toys to crochet and fill up a child's toy box.

The book is filled with clear vignettes of toys posed in artful surroundings. Simple crochet skills are required to complete the projects. Illustrations are included to teach yourself the required crochet stitches. Finishing techniques of stuffing, adding extremities and weaving in the ends etc. are included.

Flan, hot cocoa, cake and a hot dog set are perfect for the child who likes to play house. I especially liked the Little Bunny in the Carrot home. Santiago (my little Boston Terrier) and Little Kitten are perfect for imagine play and they each have a bed. If you love Unicorns, Shy Little Unicorn is pretty with her rainbow mane. Mom koala has a detachable baby on her back and there is also a Mom and baby polar bear with a fishing rod and hat.

This may be just the book to start getting a child interested in learning to crochet. Amigurumi is popular and getting more so. Ravelry has several amigurumi groups you can join. Joining a group is always a fun way to show what you have created. --Paula Moliver, Hartford Knitting Examiner

This is the third crochet book by Ana Paula Rimoli that I have purchased and it is just as good as the others. I had never even heard of amigurumi until I spotted Ana's first book "Amigurumi World" a few years ago- it was from that book that I learned to crochet, and since then I have made many, many of the toys featured in her two previous books. Who could resist those sweet yarn toys with their smiling faces?!

This book (like the previous ones) has a helpful, easy-to-follow "Guidelines" section that shows how to complete the stitches required in the patterns. Most of them require little beyond chain and single crochet stitches as well as the ability to crochet in the round, and most are designed to be quick projects of a couple hours or less. Each one requires only small amounts of yarn and other supplies, so they can often be made with leftovers from previous crafting projects. In addition to yarn, you'll need crochet hooks (patterns use G/6, F/5 and E/4 hooks), scraps of felt, a yarn needle, and either plastic safety eyes or bits of felt to sew on for eyes. These little yarn characters make great (and inexpensive) little homemade gifts; they are so cute and they will be enthusiastically received by anybody you give one to!

The patterns are easy to follow and list all steps clearly. Each pattern is accompanied by lovely color photos (often several, showing the completed item from different vantage points) that are super helpful to look at as you make your toys. The patterns all have assembly instructions for joining together the individually crocheted pieces to make the finished project.

This book has patterns for the following-

Hot Dog Set (a hot dog, bun, ketchup & mustard bottles)
Mom & Baby Polar Bear (with hat and fishing pole!

I love this book. It is filled with patterns for such adorable animals and even some "inanimate" objects such as a wonderful tree. Each pattern has a wonderful description of the "history" of the animal or object. These descriptions gives the book a feeling that it was written just for me.

This book has easy-to-follow instructions on how to make cute amigurumi toys. The only thing that was missing was where to put the eyes, but I just estimated and the toys still looked great (or perhaps I didn't read carefully and missed the instruction for where to put the eyes).

This book is so much fun! I just finished my first ami from this book: the jellyfish and it turned out SO GOSH DARNED CUTE, I want to make a whole troop of them! The patterns are very easy to follow and I love that she shows pics of the fronts & backs and also the underneath if there is a particular thing that needs to be noted about the pattern, so you can check on your progress to see if you're doing it right. There are basic stitch how-to's/reminders in the back & a glossary of stitches used (in case you don't quite remember or know what the abbreviations stand for), and even an embroidery stitch how-to for things like noses and mouths. The only thing I would have liked to see is a rough estimate of how tall/long each of the finished items are, but it's not a life-threatening issue (and I know it depends on yarn weight/ hook gauge and all that) but a rough estimate would have been a nice little reference bonus. These animals are SO cute and I just can't wait to make more!! (next is the hot cocoa and the fox!!:D) I would recommend this book to EVERYONE, even beginners since the patterns are easy to understand and follow and the time to make them is relatively quick. HAVE FUN!! :)

Very cute! I love her patterns. They are great for the intermediate crocheter. I wouldn't start with one of her patterns, but if you know basic stitches and how to read a pattern I think you could make any one of these toys.

Great book! If you have trouble understanding how the patterns work, this book is very simple and a great way to start. I supplemented with youtube videos that explained the patterns, and now I have no trouble figuring it all out. Very cute projects.

If you love amigurumi; this is a great book for you! If you have loads of these types of books (like I do and can't have enough!) -- check out the patterns (or the cover) to see if you already have many of these cute animals! Some patterns are repeats of other books that I already have... I happen to adore this book -- I love working the patterns - cute cute cute and easy to follow directions. I highly recommend buying this: good for the beginner OR advanced crochet lover! Amigurumi rocks!

I really loved the little bunny in this book and that was the reason I purchased it. Now that I have it and I've flipped through it a few times I have to say I love most of the critters. I've made two so far and plan to make more. I made the carrot home for the bunny and it didn't turn out quite right but that's probably on my end. The directions are clear and easy to follow in this book and it's great as long as you have basic knowledge of crochet and plush toy making. There's a tip in here that I never would have thought of and overall I'm really impressed with this book. I plan to get Amigurumi World: Seriously Cute Crochet next and likely her two other books as well.
