I did it   Grin  Grin Thankyou all for your suggestions!

I paper mached over a balloon, used veneer for the collar, glass beads for eyes and layered tissue paper for fins and tail. There's a little LED torch inside.

wow, they've gotten expensive!  Use to be, you could buy them cheaply.
I would go with white glue and fine, thin paper over a balloon.  making the spines would be fun; maybe form a little papier mache over toothpicks.

I found some great pix at http://www.swankpad.org/puffer/
