He has a realistic molded felt torso and limbs and hands with individually sewn fingers. The molded felt character face has been finely modeled in a true likeness with delicate hand painted features, and the wig is styled of the finest imported mohair.

Extensively researched for the utmost in authenticity, the Kid's period costume includes a cotton ribbed sweater, twill trousers with braces (suspenders), cotton socks, leather boots, and a wool tweed 'newsboy' cap. The deliberately oversized costume has been artistically distressed and aged with frayed edges, stains, holes and tears. No detail has been overlooked to bring this legendary film character vividly to life..
