    Wiggles is definitely a winning Beanie - although suspiciously octopus-like (shape, number of legs) to be billed as a squid.
    Regardless of identity crises though, I have one on the dash in my car and one in NZ. :)

    I renamed my Wiggles Beanie "Archi". I also renamed my Inky Beanie "Orbi" (long story). They seem to be pretty happy about it! But what I'm really looking for is a Hagen-Renaker Octopus to keep my feisty little Hagen-Renaker Mermaid company. I had the chance to grab one up months ago on eBay, but by the time I was able to afford it, it wasn't posted anymore :cry:

    If anyone here happens to spot a Hagen-Renaker Octo for sale online, pleeeeze let me know. My Mermaid will be eternally grateful and will put in a good word for you to Poseidon!
