Reinvent and reimagine your toys to make crazy and hilarious mash-ups! 

We've shown you the great things that lego and sugru can do before - allowing you to combine your toys together - but we've been playing some more and now we've come up with a way of completely reinventing and combining your toys!

The joy of using lego is you can keep making weird combinations - so you will never tire of your toys!

sugru is great for this because:

- it sticks to almost anything from moshi monsters to spiderman!

- its strong and durable

Please take note that sugru is not suitable for children in its uncured form - but as soon as it's cured - its ready for playtime!

Step 1: What you'll need

Picture of What you'll need
For this project you will need:
sugru (the no. of minipacks depends on how many toys!) - You can buy some here
A hacksaw
Scissors
Tissue/ toilet paper
A selection of lego bricks (the slimmer the better)
some cool toys

In this picture, we've got some of the lego bricks we've been using. We especially like the swivelling lego brick as the toy can move even more!

Step 2: Give new life!

Next up, take your toys and saw off limbs/heads/tails/torsos/feet etc.

Don't think of it as killing your toys but as giving them new life!

Step 3: Applying the sugru

Cut open a minipack of sugru and tear off a small piece. Knead it in your hands for 30 seconds to get it warmed up.

Next, roll it into a sausage and stick it to the bottom of the lego and then sculpt it into a pyramid shape.

A pyramid shape allows the sugru the best possible even spread when it's pressed onto the toy.

Press the lego brick down onto the limb/torso etc.

Leave him to cure for 24 hours. (He's had a busy day!)

I'm fairly sure this is exactly what happend in Toy Story, so I advise you stop before they start a union and plan to overthrow you.
