Sackboy is the default protagonist of the LittleBigPlanet series of games. He and his female counterpart, Sackgirl, are small entities called Sackpeople, Sackfolk, or Sack Things.



Sackfolk are made out of various cloths (mainly brown knitted wool), and stuffing, with stitches clearly visible, and a large zipper down the front of their chest. Sackpeople are stuffed with fluff, and also mentioned to be stuffed with ice cream, too.


Main article: Customization

Sackpeople are customizable, with their skin and attire being changeable, as well as in-game Stickers and Decorations being attachable.

As well as the Costumes originally included in the game, there are also extra costumes, most of which are cameos of other video-game characters, which can be bought on the PlayStation Store.

Concept and Creation

Main article: Sackboy/Concept and Creation

The original placeholder version of the character, in the prototype Craftworld, was dubbed Yellow Head and, unsurprisingly, had a large yellow head. After the team got the go ahead to develop the game, the character needed to evolve into a proper character to fit the game’s developing art style, and so Mark, Francis and Kareem all went to the drawing board and started to concept. As Sackboy was reshaped time and time again, it was the handmade aspects that stayed true throughout everyone’s designs. There were three distinct versions of Sackboy shape-wise, but you could see the similarities between them too.
