So far I have made the teddy bear. The instructions are fairly easy to follow (I'm quite new to crochet) and I am pleased with finished toy. The only criticism I would make is that the expressions on the faces are sad and a bit miserable but that can be overcome with the finishing stitches and eye placements. Just about to embark on the giraffe which I will finish with a happy face! Not such good value as Kerry Lord's books as there are only 8 designs which is why I'm only giving it four stars, but I would recommend this book.
