5.0 out of 5 stars Fun fairy tale dolls! 18 Sep 2012
By CuteEverything - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I recently read a quote from C.S. Lewis where he said, "Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again." I think there is lot of truths and insights in fairy tales and in Fairy Tale Knits, six familiar fairy tales are brought to life via knitted dolls that allow children the opportunity to act out these classic stories. My daughter has really enjoyed looking through the bright colorful stories with the cute knitted cast acting out the scenes.

There are full instructions for the characters, plus their removable clothes and accessories, which makes them extra fun to play with. There's twenty pieces to knit in Fairy Tale Knits and no advanced skills are needed, as long as you know how to knit, purl, cast on, bind off, increase and decrease then you shouldn't have any problems making them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dolls That Illustrate Six Favorite Fairy Tales 15 Feb 2013
By Lynne E. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Generally I love Fiona Goble's books with designs for knitted toys, but I definitely do not care for FAIRY TALE KNITS. It's a collection of little knitted dolls that recreate the characters from "Little Red Riding Hood", "Rapunzel", "Hansel and Gretel", "Goldilocks and the Three Bears", "The Three Little Pigs", and "Beauty and the Beast". The figures are pleasant enough, but I can't imagine what I would do with them after putting in the effort it would take to knit and stuff them. A gift for a child? A "Rapunzel" diorama? A teaching tool in an elementary classroom?

Some of the Goble books that I really like are these: Knit Your Own Zombie, The Twelve Knits of Christmas, and Knit Your Own Royal Wedding. All of these have characters that I think would be fun to knit and would make interesting displays. Because I can't see the need for dolls that illustrate these six well-loved fairy tales, I rate FAIRY TALE KNITS at 3 stars ("It's OK" on the official Amazon scale).

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun knitting 11 Dec 2012
By Joanne M. Alegre - Published on Amazon.com

These are characters that we all grew up with. I have just started to knit some and think it will be so much fun to share with my grandchildren. I wouldn't mind having a few around my house to remind me of their whimsical presence. These are figures that one knits for fun; no pressure to make them fit.
