Leopard Angst: The Life of a Deft Leppard

A New Venture

Rate this Entry
Well I bought my first paci last night. I picked up a 2 pack of Nuk 3's and gave them a try. When I was at the store, I saw they had a leopard print one, (which i really wanted), but they only came in sizes 1 and 2. I tried the size 3 and so far, I love it! I'l eventually try to order a Nuk 5, but for now, I decided I'd try my hand at Modding. I'm quite crafty, and I'm used to working with plastic items as I build a lot of models. so I picked up a couple of the Leopard Print Nuk 2's (in case I screwed up) and set out to swapping the nipples which was far easier said than done.

The 2's and the 3's use different style brackets for the ring, and though the nuk 3 nipple was easier to get off, the nuk 2 was a pain trying to get the nipple and ring off without damaging the shield.. and when I tried to get the shield off of the second one without damaging the ring.

I learned that nuk 3's are far easier to work with than the Nuk 2's as far as swapping parts. The Nuk 2's are damn near indestructible plastic wise........
