Ever since I woke up at 3 am to watch the royal wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton live on TV, I’ve been following their family more closely than a patriotic American probably should. It’s hard to resist this picture-perfect royal family, especially since Will and Kate have welcomed a bouncing baby boy into the world. This jet-setting trio is currently on a tour of Australia, and they took little George to a zoo on Easter Sunday. This highly-publicized getaway got me thinking about all of the animal crafts on the Web. Whether they are knitted, crocheted, sewn, or sculpted, these cute zoo animals make perfect gifts for baby showers. Little George may be used to expensive toys, but I bet that even he would love to cuddle with one of these creatures.
