Aww bless... You're quite a cute one!

Sackboy is the main and default protagonist of the LittleBigPlanet series of games. He is a type of small entity called a Sackperson (alternately, Sackfolk, Sackling, Sack Thing.) These creatures are known to be cuddly, creative, and curious in their own ways, and inhabit the Planet Craftworld.



Sackpeople are made out of various cloths (mainly brown knitted wool) and stuffing, with stitches clearly visible, and have a large zipper down the front of their chest. Sackpeople have black button eyes and a pink Tensoplast tongue. They are stuffed with fluff, and also mentioned to be stuffed with ice cream, too. Another defining part of the sackperson is their unusually large head, as described by Gerald Strudleguff.


Main article: Customization

Sackpeople are customizable, with their skin, facial features, and attire being changeable. Stickers and Decorations can also be attached to a sackperson.

Along with the Costumes originally included in the game, there are also costumes that can be bought on the PlayStation Store, many of which are cameos of characters from other video games.
