Pretty Little Things 02 - Mr. Dino

By Nienke Jongstra

This 2nd edition of Pretty Little Things is all about creating the most delightful toys that will undoubtedly put a smile on any child's face. From energetic little ones to crafting grown ups, a handmade toy can bring out the inner child in all of us, filling us with excitement and joy! A fun and brightly-coloured toy can truly captivate the hearts of adults and children, and even teach us to share, collaborate, and work together.

Our first pattern is the adorable crocheted Mr. Dino designed by Nienke Jongstra. Made with Scheepjes Catona, this cute Brachiosaurus is particularly suitable for babies as the mercerised cotton yarn offers bold colours, strength and durability. This toy is also the perfect partner for toddler mini adventures, thanks to the handy hand holding opening in the body. Add a fun squeaker inside the toy to stimulate your child’s senses even more!
