Minecraft Creeper Wind-Up Toy

Wind-Up Toy


When it is wound up and placed on the floor, if someone other than the person who wound it up comes close to it, the toy will walk to them and follow them for a brief period of time.


If it gets close enough to the person it has locked itself on to, it explodes.


Winding up the toy and setting it on the floor, then someone walking close to it.

Minecraft is a sandbox indie game originally created by Swedish programmer Markus "Notch" Persson and later developed and published by Mojang. It was publicly released for the PC on May 17, 2009, as a developmental alpha version and, after gradual updates, was published as a full release version on November 18, 2011. A version for Android was released a month earlier on October 7, and an iOS version was released on November 17, 2011. On May 9, 2012, the game was released on Xbox 360 as an Xbox Live Arcade game, co-developed by 4J Studios. All versions of Minecraft receive periodic updates.

The creative and building aspects of Minecraft allow players to build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D procedurally generated world. Other activities in the game include exploration, gathering resources, crafting and combat. Gameplay in its commercial release has two principal modes: survival, which requires players to acquire resources and maintain their health and hunger; and creative, where players have an unlimited supply of resources, the ability to fly, and no health or hunger. A third gameplay mode named hardcore is the same as survival, differing only in difficulty; it is set to hardest setting and respawning is disabled, forcing players to delete their worlds upon death.

Minecraft received five awards from the 2011 Game Developers Conference: it was awarded the Innovation Award, Best Downloadable Game Award, and the Best Debut Game Award from the Game Developers Choice Awards; and the Audience Award, as well as the Seumas McNally Grand Prize, from the Independent Games Festival in 2011. In 2012, Minecraft was awarded a Golden Joystick Award in the category Best Downloadable Game. As of January 22, 2013, the game has sold over 9 million copies on PC and over 20 million copies across all platforms.

This artifact was created due to the Kickstarter project, Minecraft: The Story of Mojang, where one of the items given if one were to donated money was a Creeper wind-up toy.


Mr. Kipling had to travel to a small city when a report of a weird explosion was cropping up at the Warehouse. He easily found out that a toy created by 2 Player Productions actually took on the characteristics of the creature called a Creeper from the game. So he collected the other one that was believed to be able to explode, and took it back to the Warehouse, where it sits on its shelf in its box. Luckily, despite that others have been using the toys, there have been no other reports, so it's to believe that the toy Kipling collected was either one of the first few made, or someone's love for the game granted the toy its ability.
