There are lots of different kinds of people that can be made; here are some more pictures:
These toys can be used for imaginary play, or to tell stories-- either on a felt board, or off it (on your rug/ couch/ table, etc . . .).
For a pattern to make these "cookie people" in a range of sizes, see Fuzzle Family Felt.
There are also some pre-sewn felt people at Fuzzlemania, my new Etsy site (the pattern e-book is available there, too). Come take a look!
Do you enjoy crafting with felt? What kinds of things do you like to make?
