This Ty Beanie Baby Crab, Digger, Is Not A Crab Craft

Kids love crabs. And why not, these little crustaceans are fun to watch. They walk sideways and scurry about so quickly. Did you know that crabs have 10 legs? There are crabs that live on land and crabs that live in the water.

I don't remember how this silly tradition began, but when my daughter was younger I would bring her a crab souvenir whenever I went away. Trust me, it wasn't always easy to find little gifts with a crab theme, but I was on a mission! Her favorite is the little red crab Beanie Baby...it's a red stuffed crab toy and it's adorable.
