Fun Animal Pillows

Fun Animal Pillows


Reviewed by Christine Weiher, Editor,

Everyone knows that kids need something squishy and loveable to snuggle and carry around with them. Many kids even have little animals they sleep with at night to make them feel safe and secure, so when I saw all the cute designs in Fun Animal Pillows by Kristi Simpson I got really excited.

There are 9 huggable animal pillows in this book that kids of all ages will simply love. Each animal shape is easy to work up using easy crochet stitches. The sweet faces of these animals really encourage imaginative play and even have a special accent piece to make the pillow come to life. Whether there's a cute braided tail, a crazy mane or a fun pom cotton tail, the kids will truly enjoy snuggling their favorite pal.

Animals include a bear, a bunny, an elephant, a fish, a fox, a giraffe, a lion, an owl, and a penguin. Not only are they all super cute, but some of them have a little front pocket for storing smaller items like crayons, special trinkets or even smaller little friends. 

Toward the back of the book are stitch guides to help you come up with the perfect critter. Kristi Simpson really enjoys designing baby crochet patterns, so you know these will be perfect to give as baby shower gifts or birthday presents. Handmade gifts like this will be forever cherished.

What a different idea to give for the little ones for the upcoming holidays. We can all make blankets and scarves. But not many of us are keen to crochet up a fun animal pillow! They look large enough to hug yet compact enough in size to easily transport on the plane or in the car for the kids. Fun idea!
