I think they're little number people. Number shaped with eyes on top, yes? When I was in Kindergarten loong ago we had letter people. I remember Mr T and his Tall Teeth. lol sorry sometimes things just pop in my head :P

Hi! I have an autistic grandson who loves numberjacks. I couldn't find any patterns but I managed to knit him a number 3 by knitting a long tube, filling it, and stitching it into shape. It was very successful and he loves it so much he has requested a 4 and a 7 which I am now working on. I think 4 is going to be the most difficult. You need to fill the tube quite firmly, then squeeze the filling out of the bits which are going to be folded and stitched.
