Look down about two threads and you'll see someone just posted a link. There is also a search feature linked at the top of the page that will help find all sorts of things you may be looking for.
This is also a great resource.

Here is Sheldon (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/PATTsheldon.html), a little stuffed turtle with a removable shell.There is also Norberta (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/PATTnorberta.html), a stuffed dragon. There is Kate (http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter05/PATTkate.html), a cat in "britches". Here are some Tiny Pocket Creatures (http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter05/PATTpocketcreatures.html), and also Puppers (http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer03/PATTpuppers.html) that little kids might like. Even these wouldn't be considered toys, there are nosewarmers (http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter02/PATTnosewarmer.html). A frontier hat (http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter03/PATTfrontier.html), though that's not really a toy. Pasha (http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter04/PATTpasha.html) is a stuffed penguin. Here are clothes for the Blythe dolls (http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring05/PATTblythe.html). Bubby (http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall05/PATTbubby.html) is a cute little stuffed bear. And last but not least, Naughtie (http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/PATTnautie.html) are fishy toys.
Hope that helps!

There's a book called World of Knitted toys that I love :) I've made a few critters out of there.

I don't know about you, but I'm knitting the Sheldon turtle toy as soon as I finish my mittens! xxx I have never seen anything so cute in my life!
Here are some more suggestions:

I knit up Bitsy Bear (http://knittingpatterncentral.com/patterns/bitsy_bear.php) for my neice, for Christmas.
ADORABLE bear, and she loves it! (I am very glad she is pleased, it isn't the fastest knit, with size 3 needles, but totally worth is!)
