Automata are whimsical mechanical toys that have a cool, life-like movement when their crank is turned. This pterosaur automata flies like the wind as it moves forward and back and the wings flap in a graceful action!
Designed for kids of all ages to explore the principles of mechanics, get some hands-on model making skills, and celebrate the ancient "winged lizards" of your parents' era!
Bring to life the wonder of your own automata that you can decorate. Paint it to resemble your favourite pterosaur from the late Cretaceous period (like the mighty Quetzalcoatlus which had a wingspan of over 30ft!), or an ageing rock star for that quasi-authentic look!
