Giggle and Hoot..

Picture courtesy of ABC for Kids website - Giggle and Hoot show

I try not to think it's because our daughter watches too much ABC for Kids - but these days she is loving Hoot from Giggle and Hoot.. In the few minutes that him and Jimmy Giggle popup between shows on ABC2, she runs around calling out 'Hoot!' 'Hoot!'...

It's so cute, I decided she needed her very own Hoot softie. And it coincidentally tied in nicely with the March challenge (hosted at the My Favourite blog)

So I sketched him off the tv, then set to work making him for her. He's all made out of felt, embroidery cotton, and stuffing :)  She definitely knew 'Whooo' he was when I gave it to her, and he went to bed with her last night which is a sure sign that we're on to a winner :)

So here's a photo of Lola's new Hoot softie.


  1. I Love IT!! he is just gorgeous and my son love Giggle and HOOT so much that I think i might make him one too! Well done...;-)

  2. oh very cute! I haven't heard of him before but might need to check him out

  3. I found your blog when searching for a hoot & giggle cake - my son also loves "hoot hoot" and I would love to have a go at making this softie toy - did you draw up a pattern at all or have any further instructions you would be willing to share (for a non-sewer!!)
    You can email me at

  4. Hi
    I was just wondering if you'd be interested in making another one of these to sell? Hoot is my baby daughters favourite, and you have done an excellent job of capturing him. My email is, please let me know if you're interested.

  5. I was inspired by this page to make Hoot for my granddaughter's 1st birthday. Here's the result:
