I made my first toy after buying the Pizza Man toy for my nephews. (on the right in the picture) When you squeeze his hand he sings a pretty good rendition of Oh Solo Mio. My brother immediatly confiscated him as "his Pizza Man." I crocheted the little guy in the middle so the kids could have one too. Following the pattern was a real test but the end product was well worth the time and effort, at least for me...and the kids seemed to enjoy him too. I came across the pattern for the duck and he was so cute I couldn't resist making him also. He seemed to fit right in with the group. I made the pig later for my niece along with some purses and dolls. The Ladybud afghan was for one of my nephews.
