I made this little guy Friday night/Saturday morning for a 4-year-old's birthday. Luckily, I prepared myself for the tantrum that resulted from the gift--"What is it? I don't want it!" *throws toy on ground*--so I didn't mind. I had a good time making it and the kid's mom appreciated it. She said she thought it was so cute that she was going to keep it for herself!

Pattern is from "Mr. Funky's Super Crochet Wonderful" by Narumi Ogawa, a really great crochet book.

Aww thanks guys, the kid was four so I can't blame him for his reaction! In a few years he'll probably love it....

Bday's are so very hard for little one's.  The hype never quite lives up to the day. Knowing my kids when they were young the next time you go he'll think it's great.

That's cute, I have that book checked out from the library and so far I've made the birds out of there but I don't what else to make b/c it's all so awesome.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

He's really cute! I love his fat head, and little round rump.
Punk is right.  Four is old enough to know how to say thank you.

Is the book in English? I'm heading to Amazon right now.
