So I need advice with an issue I've been having and am going to have on a plushie I'm making soon, and it's just like the title says - I make my plushies with adorably oversized heads which are, consequently, relatively heavy and have a habit of either tipping over depressingly or just ending up face first.
I'm making a plushie of this cutie (http://animalcrossing.wikia.com/wiki/Henry sorry about the link) in the near future and as you can see, he has a disproportionately enormous noggin and I know he will end up face down more than occasionally.
So how could I keep a plushie will a cranium of large proportions from tipping over all the time?
Thanks!

You could put poly pellets in his bottom to add weight to his lower half.

I read that one of the Poppet makers on here gives her dolls a popsicle stick spine. Maybe this would help your plush?

Yes, ram a stick from the body into the head.
