The Mannequins are important objects in Hello Neighbor.

Description

The Mannequin or Dummy, was first added in Alpha 1 and looked like a humanoid object that has a trunk with white fabric visible from the outside. The arms of the mannequin are made of wood. Also made of wood: the head and a low stance that replaces the legs. In Alpha 1, among the blockage leading to the third floor, you can find an armless mannequin. Alpha 1 also introduced the mannequin teacher.

In Alpha 2, the mannequin model is used as a child due to human proportions and a realistic look.

In Alpha 3, the mannequins lack arms.

In Alpha 4, the mannequin has changed a lot. Now it is slightly taller than Nicky Roth and Mr. Peterson. It looks like a tall object with very long arms made of metal and wood, a body, the body of which is made of wire, which can be seen from below. The mannequin, unlike the previous one, has wheels, but they do not affect physics in any way. The head has become smaller and narrower, sewn-in front, and the body has a patch. Also appeared another pose for mannequins. Also, starting with Alpha 4, in Fears, mannequins come to life. They begin to move, fulfill their role and can interfere with the protagonist. In the full game, they can be found in act 1 and 3. In act 1, 2 are in the basement. The mannequins in there serve no purpose. In act 3, there are 4 and they are required to get the toy rifle. You will need to bring all 4 and all 4 cakes in the birthday room and you will get the toy gun. They are also enemies to Nicky Roth in the fear levels that will reset you.

Bugs

In Alpha 1 there was a flaw with mannequins. If you take one and put it anywhere, then after a while it will slowly rise up. So it can go up in the air. And if at this time to climb on it, you can abruptly fly a considerable distance. The same property had:

  • Microwave
  • Toolbox
  • Lawnmower

Alpha 2 had the same mistakes, not counting lawnmowers. But in Alpha 3, the developers fixed it.
