This is a cute little spoon doll that your child can bring as a companionship toy on a walk, on car rides, to the park/restaurant/friend, or family's house. This is small, lightweight, and will be entertainment for your child.

My daughter is currently in a mermaid phase, so I thought this would be cute/fun project to make. Sure enough, it's her current favorite toy!
