Magic octopuses

300 octopuses were handed over to Ukrainian preemies thanks to the efforts of polish volunteers, namely the organization Ośmiorniczki dla wcześniaków and Olga Stetsiuk!

We are sincerely grateful for the support. The octopuses will be sent out to 5 different cities of Ukraine for the World Prematurity Day.

These crochet toys help keep preemies from grabbing the tubes and wires while nursed in the NICU and being connected to the numerous monitors. These cute mascot toys have crocheted or knitted tentacles which resemble mommy`s umbilical cord and the baby, when holding it, feels safe and calm.
