Huggy Wuggy is a giant, blood-thirsty blue toy from the indie horror game Poppy Playtime. He creepily wanders around an abandoned toy factory hoping to catch you, give you a big hug, and bite your face.
In our past DIY animatronic projects, we would typically take a Halloween animatronic from somewhere like Spirit Halloween, Home Depot, or Lowes. Since their new 2023 Halloween collections haven’t been released yet, we decided to try making an animatronic completely from scratch. We built Huggy Wuggy’s skeleton from PVC pipe, and we used a windshield wiper motor for his motion. His head was sculpted out of Styrofoam and the whole thing was covered with fluffy blue fur. We got to use our new Hot Wire tools to cut the foam and they worked really well. Highly recommend you check them out if you do a lot of foam carving. It’s been an engineering challenge trying to get him balanced and moving how we want him to, but we’re very happy with the result.
Building our DIY Huggy Wuggy animatronic was a lot of fun! Let us know if you want to see us build more characters from scratch, or if you want to see more Halloween animatronic makeovers. We love both! We also really enjoyed doing the toy makeovers for Freddy Fazbear and Choo Choo Charles.
Stay Wicked, y’all!
