Mixels Wiki

Ten minutes into their opening Mixopolis gig, Mixies drummer Tapsy ventured into a drum solo that lasted five hours, three minutes and thirteen seconds. The solo saw the other Mixies band members leave the stage after twenty minutes and go to the movies to watch The Mixels Movie I and II before returning to stage and rejoining the concert four and a half hours later.

Tapsy is a Mixie Mixel.



This quiet Mixel doesn’t say much—it’s only when it’s time for a drum solo that Tapsy truly comes alive. Move Tapsy’s arms with drumsticks and pretend to beat out a rhythm for the rest of The Mixies band.

Physical Appearance

Tapsy mainly resembles a living drum set with "The Mixies" on his bass drum skin. His body is mainly square-shaped. He has four crab-like purple legs. He also has four arms, to which all of them begin with a yellow accent and end with a purple color halfway with yellow hands each holding brown drumsticks. He has four grey cymbals; one set is attached next to his drum set body and his eyes are under two of them. He also has two sharp teeth acting as an underbite.


Early life

Little is known about Tapsy's past, however, at one point, he became a famous musician.

First adventures

While his brothers were at school, Tapsy was elsewhere. ("Every Knight Has Its Day")

One day, during a music session, Tapsy and his brothers had a noise complaint send to the MCPD by the Medivals over them not playing their music loud enough. After being threatened with arrest, the Mixies started to play louder, and all the tribes started to dance, closing the case. (“Mixopolis Music Mix-Up!”)

Further adventures

Tapsy played a 5-hour drum solo during a gig in Mixopolis, giving his brothers enough time to see The Mixels Movie and it's sequel. ("Mixies Drummer In 5-Hour Marathon Solo")

Tapsy's eyes and drumsticks were blown away by the force of Trumpsy's trumpet. ("Trumpeter Blows Eyes Off Band Members In Solo")

Tapsy and his brothers released an album, titled "Mix'N'Loud", which could only be played in full volume. ("Mixies Band Vows To Blow Away Audience")

Tapsy and his brothers played a prank on the local police. ("The Music Prank")

Sidebar description

Meet Mixel drum kit Tapsy, featuring 4 posable arms with drumsticks, and ‘The Mixies’ band logo, 1 of 3 Mixies featured in LEGO® MIXELS Series 7.


  • His arms are all the same length in his animated form, but in his LEGO model, his two front arms are shorter than his two back arms.
  • He is the only Series 7 Mixel who did not appear in Every Knight Has Its Day, save for the intro. Thus, he has the least screen-time out of any single Mixel so far, tied with Lewt.
  • It is unknown if he is a child or not, as he has not been seen in Mixopolis Middle School in direct canon material; like his brothers have been.

Behind the Scenes

Name and basis

Tapsy's name is a pun of the word "tap", the sound of a drum. He also resembles a drumset.

The design of his drum skin is a reference to Ringo Starr's drumset from The Beatles.


In the TV series, and where sound clips are used, Tapsy's voice is unknown.
