I was inspired randomly to make this for my cousin, who just welcomed his first baby into the world!
This simple thought occurred to me: What little girl wouldn't love chewing on Trogdor?
(...If I'm wrong, then I don't want to be right.)










I threw together the pattern, in case anyone wants to take this concept and run with it! Hopefully it isn't too confusing.



When I made this, I had more ideas than resources. Thus, here are some ideas that didn't make it into mine!
  • Add something that crinkles to the wings
  • Add something that squeaks to the body
  • Add something that rattles to the arm

If you make one of these, let me know as I'd love to see the result!

Burninating all the [babies] in the thatch roofed cottages! Sweet. I knew who it was from the thumbnail. Very well made. And no, you are not wrong. Every baby should chew on Trogdor!

What a great baby toy!  Do you have any suggestions for what could be put in that crinkles?

Thank yous! From what  gather, there is special crinkly material safe for baby and pet toys. What springs to mind for me, however, is that shiny plastic gift wrap stuff what has a name I can not recall.  I considered  ripping apart a toy from the dollar store for a crinkle effect, which might also be an inexpensive way to obtain a squeeker!
