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.

An easy but repetitive build. In motion it is mind blowing...I am amazed at how it moves! The booklet is great and fully illustrates the build as well as facts of the full scale sculpture. Take care to follow the instructions as I made a few assumptions the lead me down the wrong path. The best part is that any mistakes you make are quickly revealed and easily correctible. A great product delivered with care by Amazon!

Here is a video of the build: http://youtu.be/7y8N1ltSOp0

Outstanding kit. Had a lot of fun putting it together and it is great to watch it move. Very easy instructions. Precision parts work perfectly.
