Doris is a rather shy sweet Dodo chick. Like all toddlers she is a little clumsy, funny and very cuddly. She may not be able to fly with her little wings but she definitely gives the best hugs!

This amigurumi is a nice cuddly toy size. When made with Dk yarn and 4.00mm hook she will measure around 32cm/12” tall and 23cm/9” wide across the body.
