This amigurumi octopus was inspired by my son because I thought he needed a baby toy. My baby boy is growing so fast and grabbing onto EVERYTHING! Like pulling the top of my shirt down more than I would prefer (soooo awkward). So I was thinking it was about time to introduce him to some toys. That is when I came up with the idea for an amigurumi octopus! All those tentacles would be fun for little fingers. Then I added a rattle to make it fun to wave around. And with the eyes and smile, I think it is adorable so that is fun for me! My three year old actually has played with it more than my 3 month old... he seems to think it is a type of throwing star.
Of course you don't need to add the rattle. It can be a fun softy for any age! I just like that added noise for my baby boy!
