My most popular toy for young children and babies at the market, comes to Etsy!

This is just a wonderful, simple, brilliantly colored and engaging toy that's durable enough for serious child's play.

The Octopus is a fascinating creature. Highly intelligent and physiologically gifted, it can outsmart traps and confinement, change color, open jars! All those tentacles...just amazing.

I consider the octopus a good friend and like to celebrate its many virtues with this rainbow-hued, equally versatile toy. It's knit with ecologically produced wool yarn and wet-felted to a smooth, dense, durable finish. The head is hollow, so you can use it as a finger puppet. It floats and makes a great, NATURAL tub toy (and that is a real rarity). You can take a needle and yarn or string and slip it through the top for hanging over stroller or carrier. Due to the meshed nature of felt, the hole made from the needle will disappear as soon as the yarn comes back out, so you don't have to worry about puncturing it permanently. And, AND, it's machine washable, so you can relax about letting your child go nuts with it.


In keeping with the changeable color of octopi, I like to make the heads in different colors and use a rainbow palette for the legs. You get to choose the head color here. I have lots of different yarn colors so please don't be shy about stating your preference. I have more color selections than I can share in a listing--please ask me for the complete set of pics.

Please allow 2-3 days for production. I will notify you here when it is ready to ship.


Measures about 3-4 inches tall and about 7 inches in diameter when tentacles are laid out.
