We’ve named her Trudi. Judging by her head-to-body ratio, Trudi’s a baby turret.

Features:

  • Authentic game dialogue
  • Motion detector, so it knows when you’re there and when you’ve left
  • Pressure sensor, so it knows when you’ve picked it up
  • Tilt sensor, so it knows when you’ve knocked it over
  • LED light-up eye
  • Exaggerated features for extra adorableness

I can barely hem a pair of pants, so I’m certainly not skilled enough to design and make a plush toy. Fortunately, I was introduced to Leigh Nunan; amongst other things, Leigh has created an incredible giant squid plushie that’s about twice as large as I am. Leigh both designed the turret pattern and sewed it together (which, to me, is essentially magic).

  1. Adorable and very clever turret! I’m gutted to hear someone beat me to the giant squid thing – by the sound of it hers is bigger than mine, too – mine is the same size as me. But it is made entirely by hand, no sewing machine involved!
