Automata are whimsical mechanical toys that have a cool, life-like movement when their crank is turned. With a cow that soars over the moon as the moon moves across the sky - you can bring this age-old nursery rhyme to life!
Inspired by the fun "Hey Diddle Diddle" nursery rhyme, the extreme inventors at Pathfinders have made a cool automata that recreates the feeling of being a child again (but without the diapers!). This automata will thrill kids with the almost mystical way in which the cow leaps over the moon - legs kicking high - as the moon orbits in the opposite direction.
Bring to life the wonder of your own automata, paint it to resemble a cow, letter carrier, or your favourite satellite, the sky's the limit!
