Making Crochet Toys:
When making crochet toys you will be using the technique of amigurumi. This will require you to work in the round with tight stitches so that the stuffing does not come out of your toy. At the start of the book you will find a section with tips and tricks for getting a great finished piece.
SAFETY: Please note that the toys in this book are made for children 2-5 years. Always be sure to secure any addition embellishment to the toy so that it does not fall off to become a choking hazard.

Inside Crochet For Play you will find 8 different sections for your child to play. They range from careers that you can have to jobs around the house. No matter the child I am sure there is something in here they will love to use their imagination with.
