With a soft, plush head and crochet tentacles, Octoprem Softies provide a cute and cuddly companion for your little one. The crochet tentacles are thought to feel like an umbilical cord to a new baby, providing them with comfort and a sense of security.
They have been known to be especially beneficial for premature babies who often spend their first few days or weeks in an incubator, with numerous wires and tubes attached to them, which they sometimes pull out.
Holding onto crocheted curls may prevent these babies from pulling on their wires and tubes, saving them from the unnecessary discomfort of having them reinserted.
Small babies are often looking for something to wrap their little fingers around, and our Octoprem Softies provide the perfect solution, especially when a human touch is not possible. The tentacles are easy to grip and soft on delicate little hands, making them a perfect first toy for premature and newborn babies.
