Quirky, unique and fun loving Grubbs. General consensus on the origin of this species is they arrived on Earth via a hot-wired Voyager probe from the 1970’s that crash landed in an undisclosed forested area in Auckland circa 2016. They are believed to be a sort of miniature alien deer and naturally occurring criminal but redeem themselves through their nocturnal chittering and handsome appearance. Data is scant as to the general nature of their activities and the extent they can be prosecuted under the New Zealand criminal justice system. They have been observed enjoying and cultivating Woowoo berries, a possible narcotic with an acrid taste of bitter apples and seagull feather tea. Grubbs are found in a secret forest near Auckland by Jed Seward, who bribes them with woowoo berries or, when that doesn't work, hunts them with a butterfly net. 

Grubbs stand approximately 14-15cm tall (including a small wooden plinth, on which they stand) are made of resin and polymer clay and usually painted with acrylic.


Aurora Arts and Gifts has employed one of the Grubbs (Gary) to be the Social Media Spokes Grubb - you can follow his exploits on both the AAAG Facebook and Instagram pages.

Jed has been studying Grubbs and provided us with the following information (plus additional notes added by Gary).

2 Andrew. A forest Grubb, you probably have several in your garden. If not you should introduce them as they are generally beneficial and their Woo Berry stills rarely explode. Watch for pyrotechnic tendencies with this one.
3 Toby. A coastal Grubb showing the signs of excess Woowoo berry consumption.
5 Mike. Grubbs are natures interior decorators, happy to leave projects to the last minute, he'll leave wet paint footprints throughout the house.
6 Chris. A turquoise Grubb. At home most in rock pools.
7 Bronze age Grubb
8 Simon, a slime Grubb. We may think slime is Yuck but the Grubbs think its awesome and have it on toast for breakfast.
9 Carl, a high-altitude Grubb. A naturally occurring pink colour to facilitate the eventual search and rescue efforts.
10 Xerces, a devotional Grubb that leaves gold paint smudges everywhere he goes
11 Victor, a Woowoo berry thief and scourge of the forest. Avoid.
13 Ricky, specialty unknown, but the slowest runner that day.
15 Paul, A Woowoo berry hunter, wearing the body paint made of Woowoo berry plants he has personally slain in battle. Actually just a very messy gardener.
