This is a perfectly kid friendly toy with no buttons to get in a little mouth. Depending on the color of yarn you choose this would be perfect for a boy or girl and can be made in a few different sizes. I could see making several of each sizes and making a mobile for the baby room. The curly tentacles makes for easy holding which is perfect for little hands.
