The completely glueless Magnificent Walking Machine is a Victorian styled automaton – a moving machine with exposed gears, pulleys, and other simple machines, utilizing an impressive array of mechanical principles.  The Walking 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 all you need to get it working. Push the pieces out of the frame and slot them together by following the cues on the instructional poster. No glue required whatsoever! Once assembled, turn the handle and watch the dapper gentleman stationed up top pilot his eccentric walker!

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

The Magnificent Walking 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 walking 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 difficult to assemble without the help of a more experienced engineer, making it a fabulous project for the family.

Features:

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