"This sweet seahorse teether is a cuddly new friend for your baby, with a teething ring wrapped up in its tail. You can also make it as a stuffed toy, without the teething ring. It’s made in Red Heart Baby Hugs yarn, which is certified as having been tested to be free from harmful levels of over 300 substances! It works up really quickly. The body is worked all in one piece, and the fin is worked separately and sewn on."
