Glurt set 41519 is one of the Glorp Corp - gooey creatures who remind me of pre-school age kids - all snot and dirty hands. Glurt is very dog-like, with a big yapping mouth and little legs.
One of the best things about Mixels is the array of interesting elements in each bag, and these are no exception. The builds are quick and require a degree of skill, they're a little tricky for younger children because of the tiny parts, but excellent for promoting fine motor skills and teaching new ways to connect LEGO bricks, and fantastic to play with when built.
In this bag we also got a little extra. One of the Nixels - the 'bad guys'.
Wizwuz set 41526 is one of the Wiztastics and, as you might have guessed, these are Mixels who are capable of magic, albeit tongue-in-cheek.
When you start to build you have a purple slug-like creature, who transforms when the legs are added into an amazing spider-type Mixel.
We really like Mixels. They're cute and different and have tons of character. They're excellent pocket money value at only £3 a bag (they make great stockingfillers too), and generally have over 60 elements in each model, with some really special parts that can fire the imagination and be used to make all kinds of models. There are alternative builds and storylines online, and the Cartoon Network show for 20 minutes peace and more play ideas.
These aren't the first Mixels we've reviewed - we've also played with Zaptor, Flain and Seismo from Series 1 and Gobba and Lunk from Series 2.
