Know you can knit one for them for a special surprise gift. Finished size is 8½ inches tall. We used Lion Brand Fun Fur, or any fur yarns that knit up to worsted weight gauge will work. Knitting needles, US # 7. You will also need pillow or toys stuffing. This knits up faster than you can imagine, and makes a nice winter item to place in windows of your home! You'll have as much fun making it as the kids will have playing with it.
