My first challenge - this is fun!

I wanted to do a robot, but I wasn't sure what shape to make him, so I asked my 6 year-old son to draw me a robot. He did a very simple picture, which then turned into this:



I don't know how he ended up looking like an elephant, but there you are. His 'ears' are in fact two extra heads with eyes on them, so he can look all around.



See, he can even look behind himself!



He has a 'trunk' which is a sensor and can also pick things up.



He has wheels on his feet, which are actually marbles. He is bright and colourful so that he is not mistaken for an elephant, which would be embarrassing.

I hope you all like him!

OH wow!
I'm loving the very colorful robot and the fact that you had your 6 year old draw him for you.  The fact that you could bring him to life like that is just amazing!  Well done!

Thank you for all the nice comments everyone.

I've never sold any of my crochet before, but I am considering doing so, so my robot may be looking for a new home in the future.

Thank you! My son was pleased to see his picture come to life. I had intend the 'trunk' to go the other way round so it would be able to suck things up, but he insisted that it should go with the smaller end downwards.
