A tadpole person or headfooter is a simplistic representation of a human being as a figure without a torso, with arms and legs attached to the head. Tadpole people appear in the drawings of young children before they learn to draw torsos and move on to more realistic depictions such as stick figures. Preschoolers who draw tadpole people will generally not draw torsos, even when instructed to include features that are part of the torso, such as a belly button. Instead, they tend to draw the feature onto the tadpole person without modifying the figure.
