With a soft, plush head and crochet tentacles, our 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, but all babies – premature, newborn and even older babies – love holding onto the tentacles as they are easy to grip and soft on their delicate hands.
We proudly support Miracle Babies Foundation and $2 from every Octoprem sale will be donated to their efforts in supporting premature babies and their families across Australia.
Product details: 100% cotton exterior, 100% polyester stuffing.
Independently safety tested to comply with the requirements of AS/NZS ISO 8124, ASTM F963-17 and EN 71.
Suitable for all ages with supervision. Can be washed at up to 60˚C.
Octoprem by three little dees is a newly developed range of octopus themed soft toys for premature and newborn babies. All our toys have been independently lab tested to comply with Australian, New Zealand, US and European product safety standards, making them safe and cuddly companions for your baby in hospital and at home.
Numerous media articles and mothers’ own experiences suggest that long crochet curls – such as crochet octopus or jellyfish tentacles – feel like an umbilical cord to a new baby and can provide them with comfort, from their first few days in hospital and beyond. They are known to be especially comforting for premature babies who enter the world a little too soon.
