Step 1: Prepare the Body
This photo was taken part way through the build after the pipecleaner legs had been attached.
Take a slice off the tennis ball. It needs a flat spot to stop rolling.

Cut 2 pieces of pipecleaner, glue and bend to shape
Step 2: Prepare Head
Cut a slice off the ping pong ball and stretch the neck of the balloon over it.
The cut end of the balloon should locate over the hole in the ball
Step 3: Body, Head and Arms
Head stuck to body
The neck of the balloon was cut at its base, trimmed to length and stick back on the head
Two more pieces of pipecleaner glued for arms.

Two tiny pieces of pipecleaner for ears. Cut appropriately to create the right shape for the ears
A tiny coil of pipecleaner for tail
