If he is a plain little guy, it would be fun to embroider some little flowers on his sides to make him (or her) a bit more cheerful and friendly. If you choose to make him stripey, he may be cheerful enough already. in either case, he/she is all ready to pop into your pocket and your friends' pockets! If you have a cat, I am sure he or she would love a little fish like this to play with!
