The completely glueless Magnificent Flying Machine is a Victorian styled automaton – a moving machine with exposed ratchets, levers, and other simple machines, utilizing an impressive array of mechanical principles.  The Flying Machine is a marvel to behold, a vibrant hodgepodge of a psychedelic assembly, all styled after an instantly-recognizeable turn-of-the-century steampunk aesthetic that celebrates the magic of early complex machinery. The kit comes packaged in a box with everything required to get it working. Push the pieces out of the frame and slot them together by following the directions on the instructional poster. No glue required! Once assembled, turn the handle and watch the dapper gentleman stationed up top pilot his eccentric flying machine!

The kit is made entirely from 80 cardboard and cardstock paper so all the waste is completely compostable and/or recyclable - this walker is truly a green machine!

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

Features:

  • Assemble a curious cardboard craft, the magnificent flying machine!
  • Easy assembly with cardboard cutouts and instructional poster
  • Turn the hand crank and watch your gemtleman pilot his flying machine!
  • Exposed interior with cam, rachet, lever, rack, and pinion gears and other simple machines demonstrate mechanical fundamentals
  • Styled after the optimistic mechanized wonders of turn-of-the-century machines with a little steampunk thrown in!
