It’s a Soft, Soft Playroom

I’ve been a big old fan of Bla Bla since I worked at a Land of Nod store and spent my days with their very cool dolls. They managed to find their way all over the store quite a bit and needed to be returned to their beds or baskets to wait for the next little hands to grab them.



These Blablas come in extremely appealing colors and patterns, and they’re just SQUISHY and SOFT.

You don’t have to worry about poking your eye out or ingesting lead paint with knitted toys. Plus, they’re homey and you can tell they love you. I went a-searching for more knitted toys to see what else is out there. Let’s see:

Hey! It’s Beach Bob Babay by Lucky Boy Sunday (on Little fashion Gallery). I fell immediately in love with him and decided to check out the Lucky Boy Sunday site, which included an awesome mix of stuff like these and very hip art direction. More:

Moving away from dolls for a moment, take a look at this knit Beetle by Beebee Knitting. Toy cars don’t have to be made up of tiny chokable pieces and lead paint!




I was instantly smitten with these knit chickens from Yarn Miracle. Why, I don’t know. Maybe it’s their long, useless legs. Or the fact that I envisioned them with tiny knit eggs. In any event, the other knitted toys at this Etsy store are worth checking out.

This horse would provide hours of pretend riding play and then work pretty well as a nap time pillow. From Colette Bream.




Knit food is fun, and knit donut rattles are spectacular! This adorable group is from Yellow Label Kids, made with bamboo yarn.



Cozy Knits for You offers up a big bunch of veggies (and chicken) for grocery role playing, and probably collecting loads of drool.




I’d be remiss if I didn’t include a sock monkey here. This is the one we have and it’s well-made with no button eyes.
