Multi-toy.

vikerkaareline G-R-E-G-O-R

This is something I made for my little cousin for his 2nd birthday. I used the yarn I had in stock that were colourful and hapy enough – Red Heart Super Soft (red and yellow) and Novita Miami (everything else). In the balls I put some craft-balls, some kind of compressed paper I think.

The idea is from Seriously Daisies. The only thing I added were the letters on the bottom as there happend to be the exact amount of cups as the letters in his name. The other thing I considered was some pictorical embellshments.

The hook was a 2.75mm. If I should make something similar again I’d use more of the Red Heart yarn as it was more firm and kept shape better.

You can learn letters and to read a name with these, you can stack, put right colours of balls in right cups. And you can build them into a tower or fit them in each other. Also you can practice throwing them from some little distance to the right cup (for the advanced ones).

As I gave the gift the mother’s first reaction was that it will bring her lots of “interesting moods”. The second I took it out of the package the balls were all over the room. I guess that’s what she had in mind.

Sellise kingituse tegin väikesele sugulasele tema teiseks sünnipäevaks. Kasutasin olemasolevatest lõngadest kõige värvilisemaid – Red Heart Super Soft (kollane ja punane) ja Novita Miami (kõik ülejäänud). Pallide sisse panin miskid käsitööpallid, vist kokku pressitud paberist tehtud.

Idee sain blogist nimega Seriously Daisies. Omalt poolt lisasin nimetähed, kuna topsikuid juhtus olema täpselt sama palju kui nimethtigi. Teine variant oleks olnud erinevate kujudega aplikatsioonid.

Kasutasin 2.75mm konksu ja kui ma peaksin midagi sarnast kunagi veel tegema, kasutasksin rohkem seda Red Heart lõnga, kuna tulemus tuli nii tugevam.

Selle mänguasja abil saab õppida tähti, saad neid torniks laduda või üksteise sisse panna. Saad Õiget värvi pallid õiget värvi topsidesse panna või edasijõudnutele – veidi kaugemalt pallikesed õigesse topsi sihtida (visata).

Saaja ema esimene küsimus ol, kas see on selleks, et temal ikka “huvitavad tujud” oleks? Kui paki laua peale tühjaks tegin, olid esimese asjana kõik need 18 pisikest ümmargust mööda tuba laiali. Õhtuks oli neid järel võib-olla vaid pooled.  Seda ta vist meeles pidaski.

PPS! I forgot to mention it was part of a rainbow work-along in a local craft community. The last ones from me:

PPS! Unustasin mainida, et see on osa kohaliku käsitööfoorumi Isetegija.net vikerkaare koostegemisest.  Minu viimased siin veel, mis kestavad.
