If the toys are for children, it is highly recommended that measures are taken to ensure that the toy is safe - for the eyes, use safety eyes or secure embroidery; and ensure that all limbs / wings / other additions - including manes and tails where appropriate - are secured firmly.
The toys can be scaled up by knitting them in a heavier weight yarn (using the appropriate needles for that yarn weight). Please note that yardage / meterage requirements will change when altering size.
