Baby Gym Fruits from LanaCrocheting

These colorful, hand-crocheted fruits will grab baby's attention, and the rattle inside provides extra entertainment. Each set comes with a plum, pear, peach, apple and watermelon slice, and all feature long crochet strings to attach to a play gym or a car seat. When the child is older, cut off the strings and the fruits can be played with as pretend food.
