The design:
Spotty Kind of Day is an easy level pattern that requires a little counting but is overall a relaxing repeating design
It is inspired by the children’s rhyme
‘Put a spot over here and a spot over there, put a spot in your ear and a spot in your hair, put a lot of little spots in the air, everywhere, it’s a spotty kind of day’
The texture created by the spots is a fantastic source of tactile stimulation for babies.

Includes secure “sandwich” centre for teething ring attachment and multiple “spot” options including bobble, popcorn and puff st
