Order now for dispatch on Saturday.
This wooden automaton kit, to build a unicyclist holding a drum,(seen above as whole item and in close up) comes in a self-assembly pack. The figure and workings can be built by following the instructions enclosed and pegging and gluing parts supplied together. Once assembled correctly, a handle can be turned which drives a system of cams and levers, and the unicyclist then 'pedals', moving from side to side as he 'plays' his drum . The movement can alternatively be driven by a battery kit - available separately, not included.
The unicyclist with drum kit contains wooden components, PVA glue, sandpaper, parts list, wax candle and comprehensive instructions. Although described as suitable for age 9 to 90 this kit presents some construction challenges in assembly and the assistance of an adult may be advisable. Indeed, adults may well enjoy assembling this kit too! Described as timberkits intermediate skill level kit.
Not suitable for children 3 years and under due to small parts.
