How to organise your cables with LEGO minifigures

We got emailed a genius little discovery by Sugru-er Andreas from Germany... and it's blown our minds :) And we need to share it.

Who knew?! Sugru + LEGO minifigures are the perfect way to keep your cables organised and AWESOME! As sugru bonds to most materials, it means you can attach your minifigs anywhere you want — around your home, at your desk, in the car. Yep, just let that sink in…

Kit

  • LEGO minifigures
  • x1 pack of Sugru (one pack is enough to attach 4 minifigures)

Step 1

lego and sugru held next to each other

Take 1/4 of a pack of Sugru and squidge between your fingers for a few seconds.

Then roll the Sugru into a little Sugru sausage.

Step 2

Press the Sugru sausage on to the back of the minifigure

Step 3

TOP TIP: Press the Sugru sausage onto the side of the body and the back of the arms to hold them in place. This keeps their arms stuck in the perfect position to hold your cables!

Step 4

Sugru shaped into pyramid

Shape the Sugru sausage it into a little pyramid.
