When I first saw the Woodoo Ball “1001” Technic ball joint with black eye with pupil pattern part number 15926 Better known to you and me as a Mixels eyeball I just knew I was going to have some fun with this great part, it first appeared back in 2014 in the first wave of Mixels Series and has appeared in each series ever since it’s a great part for adding “life” to a build and I’ve used it in many times since.
I think I may have watched Little Shop Of Horrors or eaten too much cheese the night I dreamt up “Nigel The Fun Loving Pot Plant” saying that not only does he look prettier than Audrey he’s much better tempered as well. Taking the lower part of the series 10 Medusa as my starting point I added a couple of plant stems and some bamboo plants to each side I’d just recently bought the grass stem so thought I’d use them but hit a problem of how to attach the woodoo ball to the stem, keeping up the plant theme I used a carrot top and pushed thought the stem and into the eyeball. The picture below should make more sense than my ramblings.
“Feed Me” was my first build with Nigel He’d arrived early doors and was a somewhat peckish.
Of course not knowing meal times and human etiquette he was a little demanding and in the end “just had to help himself”.
(Just had to use these custom printed items to add that fun element Every one loves Reddy Brick don’t they ?)
Now happy and full Nigel was on the look out for love and things happened rather quickly ! Before he knew it Nigel was under the leaf.
But he was yet to meet the Mother In Law and you know what they say about mother in laws ! I tried to make her a little scary like my mother in law but also cuddly at the same time Looking back she is a little off the wall and a little spiky Like I said I tried to make her like my mother in law.
Now these guys don’t mess about when it comes to babies or should I say saplings and before he knew it Nigel was father to four healthy little budlings.
He celebrated his first fathers day last year with a gift of More Grow and a special fungus cake.
Writing this and looking back has inspired me to dust Nigel and Co off and take them on a few new adventures so if any of you have an ideas of what you would like to see next please let me know in the comments and I’ll give it a go No mature please this is a family site.
Until Next Time
Happy Building and “Play Well”
