Can’t Wait to Buy Your Own Dancing Groot? Make One Like This

Can’t Wait to Buy Your Own Dancing Groot? Make One Like This

Though I will remember many moments from Guardians of the Galaxy, the scene with Groot cutting loose and showing off his dance moves will stick with me the longest. Can you blame me? I can’t think of anything that holds a candle to that level of adorable. While at least one official baby dancing Groot is in the works thanks to Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys, the release date isn’t until March of next year. I don’t want to live that long without baby Groot in my life, and neither does YouTuber Patrick Delahanty, so he took it upon himself to make his own dancing sentient tree creature.

Doesn’t that make you want to flail?

I’ve seen several baby Groots pop up around the web, but this is the first one I’ve seen that actually moves to the beat. Delahanty made his Groot from a Movin’ & Groovin’ flower he found on eBay. The flower speakers look like this:

movin and groovin flowers

He left all the wiring in the bottom of the pot intact and just chopped off the daisy. Then it was a matter of covering the stem with felt and twine and sculpting the head. He used Model Magic (a nice air dry clay) and painted it accordingly. Acrylic paints would probably work fine for this. The Movin’ & Groovin’ flowers operate on batteries so Groot will never stop dancing. You could play Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back” on an endless loop or give him some new songs to groove to.

    Here’s apparently the last movin and groovin dancing flower on ebay!! Crazy price $500 but guaranteed someone will pay it considering it’s the only one available. If I had one I’d sell it for $500 too lol

    Now I am on the hunt for one of those dancing flowers to make my own. Apparently they are not as abundant as I thought they would be. None on ebay. :(
