Flik is on a mission, and although they’re not always the brightest in the colony, they care deeply about the other ants! Their journey puts them up against some of the biggest challenges they might face, but Flik and the Circus get through it, so let’s find out once and for all, which character would you make friendship bracelets with?!


There is a grasshopper in your shoe, what do you do?


It’s raining, where do you hide?


What is your favourite colour?


What is your job at the circus?


There is a grasshopper stuck in water and they can’t escape, what do you do?


When do you wake up in the morning?


What is your favourite food?


A bird is nearby, what do you do?


What is your favourite sport?


The audience have fallen asleep during your circus show, what do you do?


Flik’s inventions sometimes go wrong and cause more chaos than they do solve problems, but that’s okay - Flik has got a heart of gold and cares deeply about their friends, no matter what life, or those pesky grasshoppers throw at them! A little bit like you, it’s friends first, always and forever - awesome! You and Flik would make a great pair!


The Princess of the colony! What Atta says goes, even though sometimes she’s not the most confident ant! She might not always have complete faith in herself, but as we all know, her adventures with Flik and the gang show her that she’s got more to her than simply a nervous ant. A bit like you, you might seem shy at first, but once you’ve gotten the hang of something you’re right up there with the best of them and you know that even if it’s hard - it’s important to make your voice heard, like Atta, you’ve got a lot to say! The two of you together will be unstoppable!


Heimlich is the funny one of the bunch, and a bit like you knows how to make everyone laugh, even in the darkest of times! Heimlich might not be the fastest or strongest out there, but everyone knows that when push comes to shove, this little caterpillar has the soul and heart to protect his friends whatever happens, especially when he finally comes out of his cocoon and turns into the most beautiful butterfly the world has ever seen! Who wouldn’t want to be his friend!!??


Nice! You’re most like Manny the Praying Mantis. Like Manny, you are very polite and that is super important. Manny has the respect of the ants in the colony and pretty much any of the other animals that might come across them! Praying Mantis also have excellent eyesight, and like you are really observant and can spot things that most people miss - epic! The two of you together would be the classiest of companions, no doubt!
