Patches are the icons on the LittleBigPlanet and My Moon for story and user created levels. User created level's patch can have a customized icon made from any Sticker. The patches are "portals" to a level because when you click on the patch, it opens up and the camera zooms in, this starting your gameplay. The menu to perform functions on the level such as playing or editing it can be brought up by pressing the or button while aiming at the patch. When publishing a user-created level, the user can choose where on the LittleBigPlanet to stick the patch. Patches can also be named "Seals" as mentioned in one of the My Moon tutorials. In LittleBigPlanet 3, there are another type of patches called Adventure Craters.
