New Pattern: Lion + Possum + Sock = Petite Liossum
Not the most conventional of combinations but somehow it just works.
4 months ago my family was lucky enough to grow by one. Our new little dude needed something to look and bat at so plans for a toy for my elder son were modified. Don’t worry, the bigger boy toy is coming soon.
The Petite Liossum is designed to hang from a baby gym, car seat or stroller. Looking up the baby will see a large face, one of the first things a baby learns to recognize, in high contrast black in white that babies find appealing. I recommend using a bright color for the mane because babies become attracted to bright colors within the first few months of life – I know my son goes nuts for the red maned one. All this boils down to kicking, swatting and squealing coming from your little one.
