Best Answer

Amigurumi are knit or crochet animals/plushies. They are cute, handmade, stuffed toys that are Japanese in origin. Amigurumi toys are almost always animals with round bodies, somewhat large heads and small limbs. The goal is to create something that is very 'Kawaii' or cute. They are usually done by repeating a single crochet stitch in the round.

With the popularity of manga and anime, amigurumi is becoming trendy as well. There are many patterns available in book form or free online. See the related link for an example.
