Humpty Dumpty is thought to have been the main character of a riddle when he first appeared in Samuel Arnold’s Juvenile Amusements in 1797.  The earliest version read:

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.

Four-score Men and Four-score more,

Could not make Humpty Dumpty where he was before.

Designer Notes:

"I grew up with the belief that Humpty Dumpty was an egg, and while this is never stated in the old nursery rhymes I wanted to keep his character true to how I have always perceived him," said Gifford. "He was a relatively quick design, taking roughly an hour and a half to complete."
