It would be nice to bring along the family pet, but unfortunately they don't accomodate them in First Class unless they sit in your lap and are housebroken. Who says you can't take along the family pet...at least something that resembles one.
Hack a stuffed toy( this is a Sing-A-Ma-Jig toy with cool voice ) to look like awesome swag only obtainable by winning an awesome Instructables contest or something. Yup, there is a whole line of Instructables themed products out there just waiting to be discovered...or needing to pass safety requirements and be judged in good taste for the masses.

Step 1: Plushie toy
I found this cool "animatronic" plushie that sings or speaks when you press it's tummy. It's a Sing-a-ma-jig toy that they seem to be dumping in the better discount stores nowadays. It has a programmed song that it can sing or will utter other random syllables.
You can do this process to actually any other plushie, Robotize it or Nachosize it.
You will need:
Pieces of felt or material - red for ears, eyes and dogtag, yellow for the collar, white or some kind of gray for the buttons.
Double sided tape - I prefer to use double-sided carpet tape, greater sticky than the regular double-sided tape and you don't have to deal with the hot glue gun or other liquid adhesives.
Sewing machine or serger. You can actually do without or hand sew. I just used that method to make the ears easier.
CAUTION: Know how to cut with sharp pointy scissors. Hopefully you will know that if you also operate a sewing machine or serger.
