Ana Paula Rimoli is synonymous with amigurumi. Amigurumi Toy Box is her third book of cute crocheted friends. She has also published Amigurumi World and Amigurumi Two! For those of you who don't know what amigurumi is, it is the Japanese art of crocheting small stuffed toys, animals and inanimate objects with facial features. In Japanese "ami" means crocheted and "nuigurumi" means a stuffed doll.
Ana Paula first started crocheting as a child. With two children of her own, she was inspired to create these toys. In this book there are 25 adorable toys to crochet and fill up a child's toy box.
The book is filled with clear vignettes of toys posed in artful surroundings. Simple crochet skills are required to complete the projects. Illustrations are included to teach yourself the required crochet stitches. Finishing techniques of stuffing, adding extremities and weaving in the ends etc. are included.
Flan, hot cocoa, cake and a hot dog set are perfect for the child who likes to play house. I especially liked the Little Bunny in the Carrot home. Santiago (my little Boston Terrier) and Little Kitten are perfect for imagine play and they each have a bed. If you love Unicorns, Shy Little Unicorn is pretty with her rainbow mane. Mom koala has a detachable baby on her back and there is also a Mom and baby polar bear with a fishing rod and hat.
This may be just the book to start getting a child interested in learning to crochet. Amigurumi is popular and getting more so. Ravelry has several amigurumi groups you can join. Joining a group is always a fun way to show what you have created.
