The armadillo is a gender neutral, eco friendly toy, sewn and designed by me in my home studio.
He is meant to be a quiet companion and playfellow.
The picture is representative of my armadillo design. Please expect something virtually identical, but with very slight handmade variations. I am very good at reproducing my designs, I have had more practice than even I can keep track of.
How I designed him:
I looked at a lot of images and thought about what the main characteristics of an armadillo were. Then I looked in my files for an animal pattern to start from. I started with my pig pattern and added a head that reminded me of my sea horse. Then I added a long tail that reminded me of my spiral shells. Two big moose ears and some uniquely armadillo armour finished it up.
Armadillo is over 8" long from his tail tip to his nose tip. He stands 3" tall. He is made from an all wool repurposed sweater and stuffed with wool fleece in the waldorf tradition. He is sturdy and strong, meant to withstand a lot of imaginative play.
Please buy him if you have a child that loves to play imaginatively or you need a gift for a discerning adult.
Thank you for reading the whole description :)
Wash in cold water and air dry. He should last for years.
