Product Details

André is an anteater with a hidden surprise - he has a really long moveable tongue that can slide in and out of the mouth with the help of a retractable keychain hidden inside the body! You can see it in action on my instagram feed. The instructions are written in US crochet terms, with step by step photos detailing how to make the pieces and finish the toy. The tongue can be made with a retractable keychain or with a bit of elastic. There are also directions how to make it without any moveable parts.  André wears a removable bib and has a few little ant friends to keep him company.  When made in 4-ply or DK-weight cotton the finished anteater will measure about 42cm/17 inch tall from nose to tail tip, not counting the tongue.
