Crochet Cuddly Jellyfish Amigurumi

Jellyfish Pinnable

My 6 Month old baby girl absolutely adores her new jellyfish toy! It has no eyes for her to chew on and the tentacles are all made in a round and then attached as one piece to the jellyfish hood so she can’t break them off and choke on them. She likes it when I tickle her nose with the tentacles and loves it when I press him against her chest and make a buzzing sound like she is being stung. It is always a surefire way to get her to belly laugh. 🙂
