Product Details

"Fly through the air with the greatest of ease like the daring young girl on the flying trapeze."

This darling vintage-style full-motion wooden automaton kit is the perfect present for the Aerialist in your life.  Made from sustainable harvested compresses pinewood, all of the pieces are precut and require no tools or glue for assembly.  Once assembled, turn the crank to watch the daring Aerialist rise up on the bar. 

Before there were robots, there were automatons. Automata are mini-machines that use cams, gears, ratchets and cranks to make the toy move. Once assembled, turn the crank, and the models come to life! The first successful one was built in 1737 by the French engineer, Jacques de Vaucanson.
