These handmade amigurumi animals may look colorful and cute, but make no mistake: they are very well suited as decorations or companions for adults. Their small size and often endearing expression make them a welcome everyday sight. Think about it: regardless if you choose to place them on your desk, on one of your shelves or, why not, in your bag, these animals will surely brighten up the dullest of days.
Before your proceed, note that they are generally not intended for small kids or for pets, due to chocking hazard concerns. Therefore, consider these amigurumi cuties to be collectibles or decorations rather then toys per se. With all this said, proceed to picking your favorites!

2. Stuffed Narwhal Plush by mohustore
To quote its creator, “A mini narwhal is a funny thing.” And indeed, it is! It may have something to do with its adorable size and proportions, yes, but also with its color scheme and all the endearing details. Its little horn is made out of polymer clay, while the narwhal itself is crocheted using 100% wool and filled with recycled polyester stuffing. The animal is available in two color options: purple (pictured) and a dark, sea green hue (see it in its listing). You can order the narwhal as is, or you can opt for a hanging loop. That way, you could hang it as an ornament wherever your heart desires. Cool, right? The link to it can be found above.
