Bob Goblin! My daughter is obsessed with BobGoblin!

Bob Goblin!!!

   So, I have a 3 year old daughter who is obsessed with Bob Goblin...when she says his name it comes out sounding more like Butt Garden, but we know who she's referring to. I guess since Wally Kazam is a fairly new show, there is not much merchandise available which forced me to venture forth to my local Hobby Lobby in search of materials to build the greatest Butt Garden...I mean Bob Goblin in the whole world. I failed... it is clearly not the greatest in the whole world, it's actually kinda creepy because really, it's just a floating head. I didn't have enough felt to do his little goblin body, but my daughter loves it, so
WooHoo! Success!


   Like all of my other mostly successful projects, I totally winged it. I used hot glue instead of sewing, which worked fine.  I basically just glued the pelt together into a kind of pillow and put poly-fill inside. I actually needed some kind of structure to hold the ears out so I improvised and cut a zip tie in half and glued it to the inside, it worked out perfectly! I was lucky to find this horribly ugly vintage yarn that my mother had and it worked great for the hair, then I used a marker to give him some freckles. Voila! Bob Goblin was born and my daughter sleeps with him every night! :)

  1. Oh no momma you did NOT fail, you did awesome!! I love your story it reminds me of my 3 year old who is also OBSESSED with Bob Goblin, even put shoes on a hanger that is for an outfit & pretending that was Bob right after seeing him the 1st time! I actually came here looking for a link to buy Bob:( I wish I had time to craft again but between doctors, therapy & just being a single mom of an autistic child there's no time for anything! I wish they would come out with some Wallykazam toys . Right now she's playing with tiny Wallykazam ( most of the characters but she won't play with Oger Doug's pet because its larger than all the shoe charms a lady made into magnets. I seriously would love to purchase one of these my Gracie would flip out over it. Message me at or this is 3rd time I've tried to leave comment I pray I can get it to work!!
