Christmas is a ubiquitous part of our culture, so a figure like Sleepyhead could be easily viewed as a holiday figure. The whole idea of a kid with messed-up hair waking up in the middle of the night to catch Santa stealing presents or dad making out with Santa Claus are important parts of our popular culture, or maybe just in a Kip Adotta or Stan Freberg song. Either way, the figure design shows a lot of thought for what is little more than a yawning/scared/sleeping/smug-faced kid. Depending on the outfit or your imagination, you can get a lot of mileage out of the two faces on opposing sides of the yellow head.
Blue striped PJs make for a decent outfit, particularly as the figure has deco on the arms as well as the legs and torso. There's a lot of paint here, plus the messed-up hair is just the thing you need for your custom Hardwick/McHale/Seacrest figures. The shirt is a little rumpled, so odds are you won't be using it for too many other custom figures. It is what it is.
The teddy bear is a nice bonus, with a fully-panted face and some chest decoration. I'm always keen on toys coming with their own toys, as it's somewhat perverse. Since it is the night before Christmas, it makes sense to showcase a figure that may be stirring so he can grab whatever loot is left in his stocking. Or if it's me, sneak out and play a few rounds of Super Star Wars when nobody's watching. Additional figures for Xmas include a Santa Claus (series 8), a Gingerbread Man (series 11), and a caveman (series 1). Merry Happy, Everyone!
