Giant Panda Bear in Crochet
|Plush Panda Bear in Crochet|
This little roly-poly panda is just 5 x 6 inches and weighs about 8 ounces, a much better size to be a child's playmate as compared to the real Giant Panda who lives in the mountains of Central China and can grow to 4-6 feet tall and weigh over 250 pounds.
The Red Panda
The Red Panda also lives in China and the Himalayas. Much smaller than the Giant Panda, the red panda is only a bit larger than a domestic cat and looks more like a raccoon than a bear. You can see what a red panda actually looks like in this beautiful photo by Sylvestermouse. She put this darling red panda photo on a lovely greeting card, which is available in her Zazzle store. It is also featured on other items.
Red Panda Plush Toy
|Plush Toy Panda Bear in Red|
This crocheted Red Panda is about the same size (measuring about 5 x 6.5 inches and 14 inches around his plump belly) as his friend, the Giant Panda toy. They are both very happy to be round and roly-poly toy plush bears in my Etsy toy box.
Both the Giant Panda Bear and the Red Panda Bear are available in my shop called Coastal Crochet Crafts and they hope you will enjoy visiting them.
National Panda Day

Please, Mr. Panda is a delightful storybook about 'manners' showing a panda bear offering donuts to his black & white animal friends (a penguin, a skunk, and a whale) who forget to say "please" and "thank you". The book is geared toward 3-5 year olds in the pre-school to kindergarten range.
