Scarecrows have been around for a long time helping farmers scare away birds and pests. In the United States, scarecrows are usually dressed in old clothes and can be seen with corn husk hair. Farmers across the world have used these scarecrows, though the materials used to create them may be different.
In time, scarecrows have even been used in books and movies. The most common reference of scarecrows in the literary sense is the scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz. He wanted a brain, but was still willing to help Dorothy find her way home. A scarecrow, or "Turnip-Head", has even appeared in Howl's Moving Castle, which is based on the book of the same name by Dianne Wynn Jones. This scarecrow is actually a prince, but he is turned into a scarecrow and acts as an ally to the main character.
Woof & Poof have created a set of plush scarecrows that can be allies to children or even an ally of decoration around the house. These may be perfect around Autumn-time. Woof & Poof have created by both male and female scarecrows.
