Background

ZLIKS are a strange species of creatures that live primarily underground. They often travel in packs and will only emerge from their burrows in search of food, fun, friends... or revenge.

The line, produced by Wheaty Wheat Studios, has been designed by Andrew Bell.  They’re based on drawings from his immensely popular website (and book) – The Creatures In My Head.  There are currently 3 different “species” of Zliks – Oil, Natural and Psycho.

Zliks come packaged in a window-front box.  It’s designed as a forest type scene.  There are instructions to create a Zlik environment from the packaging...as well as reading on drawings on the rear of the box.
