Knitted Dissected Animals Prepare Kids for Bio 101

by Lambert Varias

Ah, Biology 101. We may be from different nations and cultures, but I’m sure those of us who have gone through that class share very similar experiences: The fear. The excitement. The jumping, twitching animals. The smell. Oh, the smell. The teacher who repeatedly hit the catfish in the head with a stone while the class watched, one half in horror, the other literally rofl’ing. Just another one of those insane things we went through as adolescents. Re-live those memories with The Crafty Hedgehog’s knitted dissected animals:

The frog up there is hand knit from a silk/wool blend, while its innards are needle-felted out of 100% pure wool. It even comes pinned to a dissection tray for that added morbidity!

knitted dissected lab rat

The poor lab rat above is made from an acrylic/mohair blend with wool innards. Both the frog and the rat can be taken out of their trays (they’re only pinned down, not glued to their trays) and… cuddled. Wednesday Addams approves. There’s also a dissected Easter Bunny, which has Easter eggs in place of innards.

All of the creations sell for $125 (USD) at The Crafty Hedgehog’s Etsy shop. Quite expensive eh? If you know how to knit, you can purchase the knitting patterns for the frog and the rat instead for only $4 each. Too bad there are no knitted dissected catfish. That would have done it for me.
