I made this set for a little boy about to go through chemotherapy for someone in my knitting group. She asked us all if we could make hats or toys for him, and since I figured he’d be getting lots of hats I decided to make some toys. Nintendo isn’t terribly original – once they create a character, they proceed to use that character over and over and over again. If this boy has a Gamecube or a Wii and has played ANY Mario game whatsoever, he’ll surely recognize these characters!
