Not only is this little buddy super cute, but these toys provide a great comfort to preemies! Studies have shown that babies who cuddle a toy octopus in their incubtor are less likely to pull at their monitors and tubes! Crocheted in the round and lightly stuffed, cuddly tentacles are created with simple double crochet. One ball of Red Heart Bunches of Hugs makes 5 huggable octopuses, making this the perfect item to donate to your local NICU.
