Amigurumi Crochet pattern Jumping Jack Bear and Pig

Jumping Jack Animals


A Jumping Jack doll is a flat toy doll with hinged limbs that start to move when pulled by a string that hangs at the bottom of the body. Playing with these dolls was particularly popular with children in the nineteenth century. The doll could be made of wood or fabric, but the versions of paper are more familiar.

After the cutting and gluing, the possible colouring of the body parts, the clothing and the assembling, the entertainment could begin. 


Now there's the crocheted version! The bear and the pig love to dance! This crochet pattern is super fun to combine crafts and crocheting!
