Here are a sample of The Shellies Shellie-astic, fantastic inventions, creations and adaptions. The picture above shows Crabby showing his pals his design for a water powered drill. the drill was needed to make a hole in a large stone so that water could be stored.
The Shellies (along with the Boggles) love creating music. To assist them play their songs the Merry Crew created 'musical balloons.' Click on the image above so that you can create a few musical notes of your own.
The Land Yacht, created by Crabby to assist Muscle travel along the sands in the Shire of Here and There. When the wind hits the sail Muscle can journey hither and thither to seek out objects required to make Crabby's next marvelous invention.
Using a kite, Crabby invented a way of keeping in contact with the rest of the gang where ever they be. A code was invented which could be displayed on 'the message board' using blobs of seaweed placed on the kite. One round blob means 'Yes.' A single square blob is 'No.' The message can be short or long depending on how many blobs of seaweed you have nearby. Star has been designated the Message Board flyer, while Poet is in charge of the Code book. Crabby and Skipper regularly test the others to make sure that they are learning the code.
Rainbow created 'the Up and Down the Hatch.' A great device which assists The Shellies travel up and down the cliff on the edge of their Bay. Sturdy rope was threaded through the hole in a stone. Next a basket was attached to one end of the rope and a second basket attached to the other end. One basket was left on the beach and the other placed high on top of the cliff. Using pebbles and stones as weights the pals soon discovered how easy it was to travel up or down the cliff. Crabby suspected that Rainbow got her idea after visiting a nearby resort which had a lift traveling up a cliff. .
Crabby's Mobile Instruction Board. By placing hinges on the driftwood legs of the board he made sure the legs could be folded making it easier to carry, the board is made out of a sail from a shipwrecked boat which Barnacle and Poet found on the beach near to Nook Hollow.
After researching how birds flew through the sky, Crabby created Rainbows Glider. Simple to launch, operate and control this enables The Shellies to fly along the Shire of Here and There. Rainbow is chief pilot and Pearl the assistant pilot. To launch, a seaweed rope is attached to the glider, the other end is fixed to Muscles' Land Yacht. As the yacht travels along the beach building up speed, the glider rises gracefully into the air.
