Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Almost lifelike, OWI’s aluminum insect building kit features a praying mantis insect that you assemble from metal and bendable aluminum parts. The average size of the scientifically named “stagmomantis carolina” is 3 to 4" in length. Mega Mantis is twice this size. It is quite a remarkable carnivorous insect. Its spiny-like fore legs are used to catch and hold prey. OWI’s bendable buddy is a little more user friendly. You can hold it, bend it, and even move its legs, wings, head and fore legs. The kit contains 25 hard and soft pre-punched aluminum parts, 7 screws, 7 nuts, 4 metal springs, and even assembly tools are included.

Easy, simple instructions, and fun to put together!

And, it's so difficult to tighten the screws that as soon as the kids play with it it falls apart.

The parts are high quality and the finished product is amazing to look at.

I sat down with my teenage son and we had a great conversation while putting this together. The nuts and bolts are really small and he couldn't get them in-his fingers were too big. It took us about 45 minutes to put together. The wings move, the bottom legs swing all over and the front legs are posable. All in all- for a model, I think it was great and it looks terrific sitting up by my plants. It is a very thin aluminum so it is a true put together and look at model It is too delicate to be a play with toy, but it was fun to put together.

This toy is recommended for ages 10 and up. I bought it for my younger son thinking we could assemble it together. That just didn't happen. The parts are so small I had to put it together myself. And, it's so difficult to tighten the screws that as soon as the kids play with it it falls apart. If you are planning on buying this know that you shouldn't plan on playing with it.

True, you won't have to "fabricate," or design any elaborate patterns, but have a small pair of needle-nose pliers or some strong finger tips and an ability to follow "number-by-number," interlocking-piece, -type instructions. I have accumulated several of these kits and my friends and neighbors were impressed by my "metallic display." You can "prey" (sic) for successful completion, but the challenge is well worth it! Many thanks to the shipper who delivered this item on time and with sufficient, protective packaging. NOTE: Be aware that there are many, small parts and there may be sharp edges exposed during assembly, so adult supervision is suggested while helping a child.

My granddaughter bought this for her papau for christmas. He absolutely loved it. Not the easiest to put together because of very small parts but hey, we all need a challenge from time to time.

Grandson likes to build things and model. This is unique and he enjoyed building it. It does take steady hands. But would recommend.

Having seen balsa wood kits like this, I didn't have very high expectations, but it seemed like it would be a fun little gift. I was happily surprised at the quality and detail. Has various moving parts and seems pretty durable.
Finished mantis is cool looking and makes a fine addition to the desktop collection or even as a patio ornament...

My grandson was thrilled with this. He and his dad put it together (with no problems) and it now sits on his dresser.
