Susan Anderson is so talented. Her explanations are well thought out, and easy to follow. I have knitted several of her toys and my granddaughter loves them.

I wanted some idea to make toy for a newborn baby yet to be born :P I would say there are for all sort of age, they are like plushies. A baby cant switch to the other toy, but parent can while they grow up to be able to. The patterns are easy to follow, well written and very cute! Great price for what it include.

Adorable designs, fantastic photography, great photo tutorials April 4 2013
By B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
I preordered this book and was thrilled when it was finally released. It arrived today, and I can't wait to knit something from this. The problem is that I love all the designs so much that I really have no idea which to knit first. Susan comes through once again with clever, adorable designs with instructions that are easy to follow. Acknowledging that most knitters dread the finishing work that toys require, Susan has thought through each design to alleviate as much finishing as possible. Clear step-by-step photos show tutorials for many techniques that are useful beyond the scope of the toys in this book, or beyond toys in general. Some of the tutorials include casting on a small number of stitches for working in the round, picking up stitches on a stuffed toy, working duplicate stitch and stem stitch, embroidering faces, stitching on an appliqué, attaching doll hair, and more.

The basics of the book are great, too. The hard cover protects the pattern pages, but the covered spiral binding allows the book to lie flat while you're knitting. The cover also features a "pull and smile" tab, a nod to children's books, that reveals the reversible nature of the toys inside. The table of contents features small photos of each project next to the respective chapters--a nice touch. The narrative of the introduction to the book and to each pattern reveals the down-to-earth nature of the designer and gives a more personal connection to the designs.

The photography by Liz Banfield is excellent. There is a great balance of close-up stitches-on-the-needle shots, pictures of the toys in transformation, detail shots of each toy, and kids actually playing with the toys. I love that the kids are oftentimes slightly out of focus but the toys are showcased in the forefront. Cute illustrations by Mariko Jesse fill in the white space and add to the whimsy of the book.

This isn't a learn-to-knit book, and Susan doesn't waste expensive pages teaching you to knit and purl. She assumes you know the basics, but even a beginner could handle a good number of these patterns.

Bottom line: If you are a toy knitter or a knitter who wants to learn to knit toys, buy this book. Just don't let your kids look at it. You might be hounded to knit every toy in the book for them!

A slightly different take on making knitted toys April 28 2013
By Rosiel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
I have made knitted toys before, and it's not fun. Small pieces, and you have to do a fair amount of sewing. And it's frequently in DK. This book uses worsted weight, mainly. One project has a bit of buiky, and two projects are sock weight. but most are worsted.
The author has you picking up stitches from the main piece for attachments, which really cuts down on sewing.
These toys are different, and very ingenious. Not just a soft toy, but something you can play with like action figures, making up your own story, using both characters. That is really cool.

A delight to own ..the toys are just adorable April 8 2013
By j - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
I own Ms. Anderson's 4 other books...and all of them are a treat for the young or the young at heart. They are imaginative and delightful...this is a wonderful addition to one's collection...I totally recommend this new one. I own a lot of knitting and crochet books...and it bothers me to buy books that are totally unimaginative...and just resell old , boring ideas...these are wonderfully fresh and imaginative..and totally worth buying...thank you ...and we want more!!!!

What a steal! Dec 11 2013
By Emma - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I absolutely love the way Susan thinks--her toys are so cute and practical. Everyone I've made them for has been amazed with how ingenious they are! I can't wait to start a few projects out of this book. I would like to get it in a hard copy as soon as I have the money for it, but for now I ordered the Kindle edition which is a STEAL. I honestly want to make a donation to Susan because I cannot believe that there are so many patterns and tutorials available for just 2.50. It's incredible and I couldn't be happier with the value of this purchase.

Susan B. Anderson does it again! April 27 2013
By rowndabout - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
Another outstanding book from Susan B. Anderson. As always, she has created the most adorable projects. Each toy more clever than the last makes it impossible to choose which one to make. I guess I'll have to make them all!
