  • Construct a whole zoo's worth of remote-controlled animals with mechanical insides covered by colorful plastic "skins"
  • Learn about animal locomotion and biomechanics as you build each model
  • Build an elephant that walks, scorpion that crawls along, penguin that waddles, rabbit that bounds forward, crab that scurries sideways, orangutan that climbs hand over hand along a string, Tyrannosaurus rex that walks on two legs, and a Pteranodon that "flies" along a cord
  • Illustrated manual helps kids assemble all of the models, and teaches them about the animals they are modeling and the ways different animals move
  • Animals all move using different mechanisms, each one mimicking the movement of the real animal it represents
  • A two-button remote control unit moves the small, lightweight motor forward and in reverse, allowing the models to move forward or backward
  • Use the same building pieces to dream up your own mechanical animal creations and mix up the animal skins in funny ways to make outrageous hybrid animals
  • Assemble 8 models including: a crab, elephant, orangutan, penguin, pterosaur, rabbit, scorpion, and tyrannosaurus
  • Kit contains: 1 IR motor, 1 remote control unit, 94 building pieces, and 36 page color instruction book
