The Heli-Bugs are small insect like creatures from the planet Lumpet. They have a round body, a long-nosed snout and small helicopter like wings. Their wings rotate round much like an helicopter allowing them to go straight up or down and hover over plants. They dart from plant to crevice looking for tasty bites which they suck up through their long snout. The snout enables them to get into those hard to reach corners and dips. They have been documented to come in 5 main colors/flavors but the last - 'Chocolate Supreme' is so rare it is almost mythical! Rhubarb Puff - red, with a well rounded belly that is mainly air (sucks up too much gas) Pink Blamange - pink, often wears a bow. Chicken Korma - dark yellow, can be quite spicy. Mushy Pea - green, blends well into surroundings. Chocolate Supreme - Brown, rich and velvety - very highly prized! These Heli-bugs are the main source of food for the Gulpalump. They entice the Heli-bug down onto its 'platform', which looks like a flower. Once they are in the 'critical red zone' they are Gulped down into its belly. Often an Heli-bug has escaped to tell the tale* and become a Hero much celebrated by its kind! *usually the Gulpalump has fallen asleep and failed to notice when the Heli-bug landed.

Hi, my names Tara and I like to make things. I've always made things and it doesn't look like i'm going to stop anytime soon either. I like things that are cute or geeky or quirky. They have to be quick to make as I get bored easily. So I have a nice collection of knitted friends, felt monsters and sock pets! Some of my favourite things... - Chocolate buttons - felt - socks - monkeys - Cheezombies Slugs - moo cow biscuits - dragons
