The completely glueless Magnificent Dinosaur Machine is a Victorian styled automaton – a moving machine with exposed gears, pulleys, and other simple machines, all styled after a vibrant turn-of-the-century steampunk aesthetic that celebrates the magic of early complex machinery. The kit comes packaged in a box with everything you need to get it working. Push the pieces out of the frame and slot them together by following the instructional poster. No glue required! Once assembled, turn the handle and watch the dinosaur perform walking and roaring motions!

The kit is made entirely from cardboard so all the waste is completely compostable or recyclable - this dino is truly a green machine!

The Magnificent Dinosaur Machine is suitable for adults and children alike, although it can be described more as an interactive ornament and construction experience than a toy. The walking machine will delight anyone but is best suited for paleontologists over the age of eight. Younger children will certainly love it, but may find it difficult to assemble without the help of a more experienced engineer, making it a fabulous project for the family.


  • Assemble a curious cardboard creature, the magnificent dino machine!
  • Easy assembly with cardboard cutouts and an instructional poster
  • Turn the hand crank and watch your dino walk and roar!
  • Exposed interior with gears, pulleys and other simple machines demonstrate engineering fundamentals
  • Styled after the optimistic mechanical wonder of turn-of-the-century machines with a little steampunk thrown in!
