This is Pablo Peanut. His friend below is Presley Q. Peanut. They were knit with organic cotton yarn, are about 3" wide and 8" tall. Amigurumi creations (the Japanese art of knitting small items in the shape of a character or animal) are always fascinating, and these are just too intriguing! With baby-safe stitched features they make cute toys for the kids, but work for grown-up kids too: they'd look good sitting on your bookshelf, desk, or chair. Get yours at Chet and Dot, $22.
