Product Details

Create a robotic "zoo" and explore the wild side of engineering! Each remote-controlled creature you'll build is mechanized to move just like its real animal counterpart. A two-button remote control unit moves the small, lightweight motor forward and in reverse, allowing the models to move forward or backward.

Build an elephant that walks, a spider that crawls along, and a cute little penguin that waddles. Construct a rabbit that bounds forward, a crab that scurries sideways, and an orangutan that climbs hand over hand along a string. You can even build a couple of dinosaurs: a Tyrannosaurus rex that walks on two legs and a Pteranodon that "flies" along a cord. Learn about animal locomotion and biomechanics as you build each model. When you are done, use the same 100 building pieces to dream up your own mechanical animal creations! You can even mix up the animal skins in funny ways to make outrageous hybrid animals.

A full-color, 36-page step-by-step illustrated manual helps kids assemble all of the models, and teaches them about the animals they are modeling and the ways different animals move. Uses 6 AAA batteries (sold separately). Designed exclusively for MindWare by Thames & Kosmos.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grandson loved it! I have always loved Mind Ware. This product was such as success my son videoed his 9 year old son building and operating the crab. Unexpectedly, the set didn't just come with the parts and directions, it also explained the anatomy and physiology of each animal. A great success. And I could have it shipped directly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I always try to find something unique for our grandsons, aged 5 and 7. Mindware always comes through and this time was a huge success! The boys have had so very much fun with this fantastic toy. The animals move just like the real thing and we have laughed and laughed at the reality of them. I would suggest if you are looking for something to keep them entertained for hours this is just the thing. It is not just a toy but a true learning experience!
