I wanted the characters in my 'Newborn' entry to have a retro feel. This was going to be more fantasy than hard science fiction - leaning more to the surreal even. So the biomechanical baby is an impossible melding of machine and biology rather than an attempt to design a realistic cyborg child. With that and the retro influence in mind much of his design was based on old tin toys from the 30s to 50s.
