Megan is an artist and animator for DreamWorks Animation SKG. Megan lives in Altadena, California, with her husband, Michael, and children, James and Emily.Review:
When a well thought out book crosses my desk, my approval becomes increasingly audible with as I encounter each new feature. By the end of this book, I was shouting and clapping my hands.
Okay, the projects in this book are beyond adorable. DreamWorks artist and animator Kreiner has designed bath toys which are soft and safe, appealing and useful.
Bathtime Buddies is a wonder-filled book. I highly recommend it!

My immediate impression of Bathtime Buddies is that Megan Kreiner has excellent skills when it comes to crochet and designing. Upon closer look, I found that she is an artist and animator for Dreamworks Animation SKG, so it is no surprise that the "buddies" within are so artfully crafted! The playful title of the book belies the fact that there are some excellent projects that duplicate life in the sea with great accuracy! Kids love bath time and parents will love having any of Megan's 20 animals which will inspire imaginative play. Just a little playtime before saying "night-night" relaxes even the most fidgety of kids and allows them to go right to sleep. Made with kid-friendly materials and baby-safe options, instruction to make the same toys for land use only is also included. The Tools & Materials section is excellent and makes it quite easy for the crocheter to find the appropriate hassle-free materials for successful completion of each toy. I, for one, will be making Octopus and Lobster for my 3-year-old grandson!
As we have come to expect from Martingale, the stitch illustrations are clear and very helpful and the projects follow skill-building progression so beginners can learn lots on their way to creating some impressive creatures! Some bonus skills are included also to enhance the look of each project such as crocheting on the surface, sewing, embroidery plus finish techniques. From guppies to jellyfish and also an angler fish, the sea creatures Megan has created are not necessarily "adorable", but they are definitely amazingly lifelike! To complete the ensemble [of] the child's real-life play, there is even a diver and a mermaid to make! --Gwen Blakley Kinsler, Crochet Queen: Royal Ramblings, August 2014
The front of this book starts you on the imaginative journey of these bathtime buddies. I am loving making the different designs from the book. The patterns are so easy to follow and full of so much imagination. There isn't a single pattern I don't want to make... It's such a complete set. There are so many fantastic techniques used. It's amazing the amount of detail in each pattern but they aren't daunting and are really easy to follow. There are some of the patterns that are slightly more difficult but nothing that most crocheters wouldn't be [able to] manage.
Children will just have so much fun with this set... I love Megan's use of terry cloth to get an even better look on some of the animals. The bottom of the whales and sharks are terry cloth and it works really well. All of the animals and characters are the perfect size to interact with each other. The mermaid and diver look fantastic...
I would highly recommend this book! It is jammed packed full of brilliant patterns! --Susan Dougill, Crochet Addict UK, September 2014
