31 Amigurumi in October - October 15

The Zashiki-warashi, or Tatami Room Child, is a household spirit resembling a child between the ages of three to twelve. The name Zashiki-warashi is from the Iwata Prefecture, but similar legends are found throughout Japan. It's said when this beneficial spirit inhabits a home, the owners will prosper, despite the Zashi-warashi mischief, such as moving the pillows of those sleeping or pulling on the bedding. However if mistreated, the Zashiki-warashi will leave and the house will fall into ruin.
