Featured Item: A Fishie Tribute to Dr. Seuss
One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish
Dr. Seuss was a big favorite in scarywhitegirl's house as she and her siblings were growing up. Scarywhitegirl's favorite was always "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish," and now she's created a school of fish to match that book.
There are 5 fish included in this school - 1 light yellow, 2 green (similar, but not identical), 1 red, and 1 blue. These represent the 5 fish on the cover of the Dr. Seuss book. Each fish measures about 6" long and about 3.5" wide (15 x 9 cm), and is probably about 2" (5 cm) thick at the middle.
Each of the fish is crocheted from 100% acrylic yarn, with black cotton yarn used to mark the eyes on each side of the fish and are stuffed with polyfil. These fish are safe for young children (no small parts), but adult supervision is still recommended while children play with these fish.
The fish can be machine washed and dried; just put them in a knotted pillowcase or lingerie bag to prevent them from taking too much of a beating while being cleaned.
