Moshi Monsters Marine Force

Moshi Monsters splash down at SEA LIFE centres across the UK this year to encourage youngsters to get involved with marine conservation.
 
SEA LIFE will see the introduction of the Moshi Marine Force to inspire youngsters to help protect our shores. As well as the Moshi Marine Force activity, visitors to SEA LIFE will be in with the chance to collect new Moshling, Lubber the Whimsical Whale, who will be available in-game at MoshiMonsters.com for Force members.

As part of the Moshi Marine Force, kids visiting SEA LIFE will be able to submerge themselves in an interactive, fin-tastic quiz trails to become a fully-fledged Buster Conservation Hero, modelled on Buster Bumblechops; the Monster whose job it is to look after Moshlings in-game. There will also be six Moshlings hidden in tanks around SEA LIFE centres, swimming with clown fish, crustaceans and coral for children to find – once found, a special Lubber the Whale will be unlocked in-game and kids will get a Conservation Hero Certificate.

Special Character Appearances throughout the week (at London)

Meet the characters
  • Meet Monstro City’s number one Moshling conservationist, Buster Bumblechops.
  • Say ‘hi’ to Katsuma, the clawsome king of the karate chop!
  • Snuggle up to super-cute Poppet for a furry photo opportunity!

On Sunday 16th March we was invited along to the London Sealife Aquarium by Moshi Monsters to do a bit of exploring and to sign up to the Moshi Marine Force

The boys were excited as we have never been to the Sealife Centre and extre excited to be able to meet some of the characters again and becoming a Buster’s conservation hero. As we arrived at the Aquarium we was given an activity book which had a quiz trail inside, we was to find the missing marine moshlings figures hiding in the tanks, write down where we found them and then at the end of the visit we would be able given a secret code in order to unlock a virtual Lubber in the online moshimonsters game. The activity book also has marine jokes and facts inside, something for the children to read on the way home maybe 🙂

It wasn’t after walking around the Aquarium that we spotted our first Moshling hiding in a tank, the boys were really excited and it was nice to see Joseph reading all about the marine animal that was inside the tank. Joseph was showing interest in the information, something he doesn’t normally do, he was enjoying learning about what he was reading. I love how something that he is interested in is helping him with his reading.

Not only did the boys get to find the hidden moshlings but they also spent time looking in all of the tanks at the different marine animals that the Sealife centre had to show

Oliver met Lubber himself and wouldn’t let him go!

I asked Joseph if he had enjoyed himself and he said “Some people might think that a Sealife centre is boring, but I don’t! I found it very interesting. I had a great time and really enjoyed myself”

“The activity will take place throughout the year at all UK SEA LIFE centres starting at the SEA LIFE London Aquarium on Sunday 16th March and ending at the Brighton SEA LIFE Centre on Sunday 9th November. Participating kids can nose dive into the world of Moshi Monsters where they will be able to meet Buster, Poppet and Katsuma and also bring in their Moshlings to swap with other collectors.

Sarah Taylor, Head of Conservation at SEA LIFE, said about the activity; “We’re really excited about the creation of the Moshi Marine Force. It’s a great chance to get kids involved with all the fantastic conservation work we do and to reach out to them through the medium of Moshi Monsters.”

Commenting on the partnership, CEO and founder of Mind Candy, Michael Acton Smith said: “SEA LIFE is a great fit for us. We already have the Fishies and Sploshies Moshling sets, so it’s great that we can add Salties and Lubber the Whimsical Whale to the collection! We know how important it is to protect the environment, so we hope the Moshi Marine Force will help!”

SEA LIFE has a rich history in marine conservation, from rescuing and rehabilitating dolphins and turtles found along the UK coast, to leading research and campaigning against whaling. The Moshi Marine Force and SEA LIFE’s partnership with the global kids brand, aims to inspire the younger generation to get involved with marine conservation.”

NO.1

INTRODUCING FURNANDO THE MYSTIC MOGGIE

1furnando

Bio: Gaze into a Mystic Moggy’s eyes and you might start woofing or oinking because these mysterious Moshlings are talented sorcerers. They can even levitate when they meow, cough up magic furballs and make pilchards vanish (‘cos they sneak them under their top hats). Gee whiskers!

NO.2

INTRODUCING QUINCY

2quincy

Name and Species: Quincy the Fraidy FuzzyFace

Personality: Anxious, jumpy, callow.

Mini Bio: Fraidy FuzzyFaces are always being frazzled by lightning, squished by falling pianos and attacked by swarms of sillipedes. Or so they say! It’s hard to be sure because these jittery Moshlings rarely leave the house. And when they do they insist on wearing protective gloves, rubber boots and hardhats. Look out, danger ahead!

Habitat: Fraidy FuzzyFaces live on Eek Street but you might see a few dashing along Ooh La Lane with their hands on their heads.

Likes: Staying in and reading The Daily Fail.

Dislikes: Going out and toffee apples

Rank: 152

Rarity: Rare

20140213-065451.jpg

What the boys think: Quincy looks like he is a worker from a building site or a mine, because he is wearing gloves and a hard hat. It sounds like he doesn’t have much luck with venturing outdoors, Joseph would like to look after them and keep them safe. Jak says that Quincy looks like he is in a prance, as he has big pupils, it’s probably where he keeps getting frazzled by lightning.

 

Countdown so far:

Series 9 is looking like a very interesting series full of funny and funky characters! Stay tuned every day until 14th February when all of the moshlings series 9 characters will be revealed, with a special little surprise at the end.

Moshling Series 9 Countdown No.3 Mumbo

I can’t believe we have nearly come to the end of the Moshling series 9 countdown, we have all enjoyed revealing the new characters. The boys have loved adding them to their already big collection of moshlings, they have in particular liked reading the mini bios on them.

Today’s Moshling is the maddest of them all!

NO.3

INTRODUCING MUMBO

3mumbo

Name and Species: Mumbo the Punky Monkey

Personality: Anarchic, boisterous, nuts.

Mini Bio: Never mind the beeswax, Punky Monkeys use custard to keep their crazy hairdos upright. But that’s no surprise because these unruly Moshlings will do almost anything to stand out from the crowd, from scribbling naughty words on walls and swinging through the trees yelling tuneless protest songs to burping up banana skins.

Habitat: You might see a Punky Monkey pogo-ing along Main Street, but these rebellious rockers originally come from Nyaargh Nyaargh Nook.

Likes: Safety pins and churned butter.

Dislikes: Hippies and the system.

What the boys think: He is really cool! They love his mohican and the fact that he has his ears pierced, a real punk!

NO.7

INTRODUCING CHIRPY

7chirpy

Name and Species: Chirpy the Chipper Chaffinch

Personality: Optimistic, jaunty, cute.

Mini Bio: Knock knock! Who’s there? No, it’s not a Perky Pecker, it’s a Chipper Chaffinch. But that’s an easy mistake because these impossibly cute Moshlings are always pecking away at trees, tip-tapping messages to each other in Mosh Code. ‘Peckity… Peck… Thud.’ (Which, roughly translated, means ‘I love you too.’ Awww!)

Habitat: In brightly painted bird boxes, high up in the trees of Wobbly Woods.

Rank: 163

Rarity: Rare

20140208-205155.jpg

What the boys think: Peckity….Peck….Thud These moshlings are just too cute, they have the most gorgeous big blue eyes, that could melt any ones heart. The boys would like a chirpy for a pet.

20140128-190620.jpg

 

NO.8

INTRODUCING SHIMMY

8shimmy

Name and Species: Shimmy the Selfish Shellfish

Personality: Rash, petty, puerile.

Mini Bio: Have you ever tried saying ‘Selfish Shellfish’ really fast with a mouthful of soggy sand? If you have it’s probably because one of these silly Moshlings made you do it in exchange for some of the magical rainbow pearls it burps up every now and then.

Habitat: Clamshell Cove but you will sometimes find these ocean-going Moshlings hiding in treasure chests.

Likes: Valley Mermaids and lip balm.

Dislikes: Lemon pips and bottom feeders.

Rank: 162

Rarity: Common

20140207-064620.jpg

What the boys think: Selfish Shellfish, Selfish Shellfish, Selfish Shellfish Selfish Shellfish lol Yes the boys are now running around chanting this tongue twister! They are now trying to perfect it so that they can get some rainbow pearls from Shimmy. The boys all think that this character is the funniest, but maybe very rude, he looks like he is about to blow a raspberry at you, hehe!
