Automata Too by Magoalen Bear


Automata Too by Magoalen Bear

If you like making working models, then you will be delighted with this collection. The 'Run-about Train' follows its track through the tunnel and the 'Busy-buzzy bees' buzz about in a rather random and bee-like fashion. The 'Hare and the Tortoise' race to a very close finish, and the 'Owl and the Pussycat' set off in their pea-green boat. All of them make use of different mechanisms and the collection is a fine display of ingenious and colourful paper engineering.
