My son is a huge fan of the Amazon Prime show Tumble leaf. Since written communication is easier for him, he really likes that they show the word for the thing Fig finds in the Finding Place at the beginning of each episode, and then there's an entertaining story about exploring that found thing. I decided to make him a Fig so that he could maybe play pretend with his favorite TV buddy. I actually wasn't sure how much he'd like it, but since he liked the show so much it was worth it to me to try.
I used old jeans for Fig's pants, brown fleece for his tshirt, and left over furry material from a previous Halloween costume for his ears and skin and feet. Fig accidentally ended up being nearly as big as my son!
Fig is well-loved!
