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 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!Read more ›
