Theo Jansen's Mini Rhinoceros Kit

Gakken


$ 54.95
The spiritual successor to The Mini Strandbeest, this kit uses physicist/artist Theo Jansen's technique to create an elegant walking rhinoceros!

This rhinoceros is propelled in the same way as the The Strandbeest - without electricity or batteries and only by the power of the wind. Simply put together the kit, place the rhino on a flat surface, add a fan or some blowing air, and watch as it walks gracefully and fluidly forward. It's a fun, easy, and unique kit for both kids and adults and looks great while in motion or resting on a mantelpiece. It truly is a work of physics and a work of art!

There's no English manual so this kit's a bit more challenging than the other Gakken kits. The pictures are fairly simple to follow, however, and the kit should only take a couple of hours to build.
