About this item

  • Construct a rabbit that hops forward, a crab that scurries sideways, and an orangutan that climbs hand over hand along a string
  • You can even build a couple of dinosaurs: a Tyrannosaurus rex that walks on two legs and a Pterosaur that “flies” along a cord. Learn about animal locomotion and biomechanics as you build each model
  • When you are done, use the same 94 building pieces to dream up your own mechanical animal creations
  • You can even mix up the animal skins in funny ways to make outrageous hybrid animals.
  • A full-color, 36-page step-by-step illustrated manual helps kids assemble all of the models, and teaches them about the animals they are modeling and the ways different animals move

Description

Construct a whole zoo’s worth of remote-controlled animals with mechanical insides covered by colorful plastic “skins.” The animals all move using different mechanisms, each one mimicking the movement of the real animal it represents. A two-button remote control unit moves the small, lightweight motor forward and in reverse, allowing the models to move forward or backward. Build an elephant that walks, a scorpion that crawls along, and a cute little penguin that waddles.
