Growing up, getting to see Calvin and Hobbes in the newspaper before heading off to school was a daily treat. I was so infatuated with the strip that naturally I wanted my own plushies. Sadly, I never got them because there were no officially-sanctioned Calvin and Hobbes dolls.
Until last year, when I decided to make my own!
The bodies are stuffed with garden wire to make them poseable. Unfortunately,
I don't really flex them too much since it is a bit fragile. Is there any other
type of wire suitable for this purpose?
Calvin is about six inches tall while Hobbes is a foot tall.
It may have taken years of waiting, but it was worth it in the end!
