Kids who like arts and crafts will love these cute knitting dolls! They are a classic and still very satisfying -- some might say addictive. You can make knitted cord by looping yarn around the pegs on the doll's head. Set comes in a small cloth bag and includes a painted wood knitting doll, several colors of yarn to get you started, a wooden tool for picking yarn over the pegs, and very quaint instructions: "I am sure your grown-up friends will be delighted if you make them a present of a teapot holder, or a pincushion, or an egg cosy or any other of the useful little things you will make." A hat or braided rug for your woodland animal, perhaps?
We recommend this for ages 6 and up. Maybe a precocious five who really loves quiet craft projects. Imported.
