At first glance, this may seem like a meaningless tongue-twister word such as supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, instead it has a specific meaning.
It originated in Japan from a combination of the words ami
, meaning crocheted or knitted, and nuigurumi
, meaning stuffed doll.* Source: Wikipedia
Amigurumi are dolls, animals or imaginary creatures of various sizes, soft as a plush, but completely handmade with yarn and a crochet hook.
