"Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen."


Its my third and final post for LEGO Mixels series 2 and the last tribe to write about is the Flexers, i have loved all of this series for so many reasons being a bit of a LEGO addict. They have been great for Seth and Opeie to build when we've been out and about. A perfect size for taking places for entertainment and we even got grandad involved with the building too. For me though i have been excited about the parts, some new and some just in colours we didn't have before. Mixels have also given us some inspiration for building smaller more detailed builds.


The Flexers tribe come with three adorable characters (Kraw, Tentro and Balk) each with their own personality and TV show to back them up, if you have been watching over on Cartoon Network. The Kits although on the smaller side of the Lego ranges pack quite a lot of LEGO inside and are great for creative more detailed building. They have some interesting and really fun new parts including eyes, teeth and joints. As with all of the tribes if you buy the three you can go online to get the instructions to build a Mega Mixel or if your feeling a little more creative there is everything you need in a full tribe to create some really amazing characters. If you Google Mixels and search the images there are some great custom creations.



Seth has been loving the eye pieces and has been using many of the design features on the things he has been building himself. Opeie is a big fan of anything small and fiddly so has been content playing with the ball joints and making things from them. Once all of the Flexers had been built Opeie introduced them to the other tribes...


And then introduced them to the Simpsons Characters but while watching Opeie play I'm not sure they got along...


I love the variety with LEGO, there are so many themes to chose from but what makes this building toy so amazing is that each kit can be connected to any other making it the most versatile building toy on the market. you can pretty much create anything from LEGO if you put your mind to it and its a bit of an ongoing joke in our house that when Mrs M says she needs something my response is usually "I'll make you one out of LEGO".

I wanted to create something fun for our last Mixels post to show what you can do with them and while me and Opeie were building the Frosticons tribe last week Opeie gave me all the inspiration i needed when he said "Daddy i wish i was a Mixel!" Luckily daddy has a magic lamp...

And rubbing the lamp releases a very special and magical chap (as soon as the smoke has cleared of course), who can grant a single wish. So make Opeie into a Mixel? that's doable right? 


Yes of course it is, like i said anything is possible with LEGO. Me and Opeie started it together one night but he jumped ship and went to bed, three year old's huh! Me? well i sat up till almost 2am Oops. Probably not the best move as Opeie is quite demanding from the moment he wakes up, Early!

Any way Opeie's wish came true and his Mask/Glasses were made only using Mixels pieces, there was even arms to clip over his ears, Genius...


Get to the shops and Buy some LEGO and let your creative juices flow. There really is no other toy that compares to it from a creative point and no end to the possibilities.
