The Backson

My little boy has been a bit sick with a cold the last few days, so I thought I’d make him a toy to cheer him up. He really likes the Backson from the Winnie the Pooh movie, so I thought I’d give that a go.

The Backson

It’s a Giant creature with a tail
Here, I’ll draw Piglet in for scale
Its hide is like a shaggy rug
Its face a surly ugly mug
With two sharp horns atop its head
In between a mop of hair that’s red
And in its nose a ring of gold
It smells of monkey’s feet and mould
Its toes are black
Its fur is blue
I swear that all I tell you is not made up
The Backson!

    Hi – I’ve been looking for a Backson stuffie for my son. Do you sell these? I don’t knit/crochet but would really love this for him.


  2. Hi! My 3 yr old son tells me the Backson is the one toy he wants to buy with all the money in his piggy bank (about 30c ha ha ha) BUT I know you can’t buy one anywhere! It breaks my heart because I am not a knitter and if I was, I’d knit one. I live in Arlington VA. Is there any chance I could pay for one to be knitted? This would be the best Christmas present I could possibly get him!

        I apologize if you get this twice–I tried to post earlier but don’t see it here. I would really love to get one of these for my nephew. If you are willing to make another one, please let me know and I will gladly cover all costs. Thank you!


  3. That would be SO fantastic! Thank you. Thank you. I would certainly do that…just let me know how to reimburse you etc. This will be the best Christmas gift- he will be so excited. Thank you! Let me know what to do next!

    Joyful Mum they are amazing. I’m sitting here watching the movie with my son now. I’d love to buy one off you as it’s his total fav. I’ve looked everywhere for a Backson. Looking forward to hearing back. Martin

      Hi Martin, I’m so glad you like my Backson πŸ™‚ I am in Australia, so if you are elsewhere the postage might be a bit expensive, but I’m more than happy to make one for you πŸ™‚
