While sweet and lovable, Chilly is rather silly due to the fact that he is always worrying about something. Chilly often worries about melting like real snowmen do, or being sick or injured in nearly any way, shape, or form. Chilly can also be quite cowardly at times and usually has very little self-confidence as seen in "Nurse's Office" where he was too afraid to take part in Professor Hootsburgh's toy school, but is still willing to help and even face his fears to help his friends, like Pickles. Chilly is also generous, as seen in "Selfless Snowman" where he donates some of his stuffing to Pickles.
Chilly is a plump stuffed snowman with brown eyes, a short carrot nose, a black hat, a blue striped scarf, and two black buttons down his front. He usually wears a blue woolly hat, a green coat, and red mittens when he goes out in the snow. In Season 5, he wore a green coat. Chilly wears a blue helmet when Doc takes him out on bike rides. In "Leilani's Lu'au", he wore a hula skirt at the luau party. When Doc and the toys traveled back to the 1800s in "Let the Nightingale Sing" Chilly was given a red vest, a brown jacket, a blue bowtie and a black top hat with a green stripe. He also wore it in "Boxed In" for the McStuffins Toy Ball. When treating pets in season 3, Chilly wore a green shirt with yellow paw prints on it. In "Welcome to McStuffinsville", he wore a light green shirt and a mask in the operating room.
After becoming a med student at the McStuffinsville Toy Hospital, he gained a blue scrub with dark blue hats on it and he now wears a white lab coat of his own. Chilly has a green stethoscope. While going on rescue missions he wears a navy blue rescue life coat with light blue and orange stripes. During "The Sleepwalking King" he wore a purple robe with black on it. After accidentally becoming a baby toy in "Lambie and the McStuffins Babies" Chilly's hat changed into a more winter hat with snowflake pictures which was the color green. He was also given a yellow pacifier.
In "Whole Lotta Hula" at Leilani's luau, Chilly wore a red Hawaiian shirt with flowers on it. At the end of the episode, he wore a blue hat. In "Daisy Makes the Call" Chilly wore a blue vest and a blue bowtie for Sir Kirby's blue soiree. In "On Call Ball", he wore a red vest and a blue bowtie for The Wicked King's Ball.
While going on pet rescue missions in Season 5, Chilly wears a green pet rescue life coat with two magenta pockets. In "Toys in Space", Chilly wears a space outfit and helmet in space. In "Stuffy's Safari", Chilly wears a brown safari hat and coat.
