My favorite toys to make are the one's my kids ask me to knit. That way I know it's what they want and it's special for them. I also like to make "socktopus" to give as gifts.

Stuffed rattles.

I made each of my grandkids a set of crocheted 'Juggling Blocks' several years ago for Christmas (my son, too, actually...). They were filled with craft bead filler (don't remember the right word for it...too early-brain has not engaged yet, beanbag stuffing only smaller...). Each set was a different color combination. As far as I know, they still have them. Other than that, they're too big now for toys...everything is computer games now...

I have made finger puppets. but I like the idea of a snugly blanket

I crochet animal purses fot little girls

I would like make some stuffed animals. Have patterns for a turtle and flamingo that I can't wait to start. But the sock monkey might move to the top of the list. So cute.

I love to crochet toys that are bright, soft, and a little goofy looking. The kids I make them for can take them anywhere and even to bed at night. I have also crocheted kittens and puppies for some of the elderly folks at the nursing home.
