Product Description

Build this Strandbeest kit yourself! It has a very interesting mechanism: blowing into the fan makes the animal start walking against the wind. The wind power is conveyed to the legs by 2 gears. The 28-page science guide gives you the history of the real Strandbeest that Theo Jansen started building in 1990. The guide also includes easy-to-follow assembly instructions.

I wanted to understand the mechanics behind Theo Jansen's creations, so I ordered this kit. I was surprised when it arrived attached to the box was a booklet with very thorough assembly instructions and a history of the Strandbeest. The kit was complete, no parts missing. It took me a little over an hour to complete at an easy pace. This was not a difficult kit to complete. The greatest thing is after completing the kit it worked flawlessly.

Was as stated. My 13 year old son built it immediately upon opening and loved it! Is for an older child or for a child of 9 with a lot of adult help.

This was sent to a grandson who lives across the country from us. I didn't see him use it first hand.
