Pneumatic Engine details:

Mimics the working of a steam engine to perfection. Its mechanism generates real pressure coupled with the noise that pneumatics are well known for. Small but fully functional example of a steam engine, except that it uses air pressure instead of steam to set it in motion. Number of parts: 82

Tractor details:

Mechanical model works with the aid of a rubber band that activates an all-wheel drive motor which allows it to move on a flat surface showing clearly the workings of the gears, pistons, and levers. It has a transmission switch that provides three options: "park", "drive", and "sport". The "drive" mode will get it going slowly, covering about 5 cm per second. Switch the model to "sport" to see your tractor speeding up in its graceful splendor. Number of parts: 97

Treasure Box details:

A unique teaser puzzle that has been dynamically engineered to be self-assembled. Contains a compartment that can be opened and closed with an exquisitely carved key that sets the gears in motion when turned clockwise.

Town Tram Line details:

The Tram Line model consists of 14 smaller models, which come in a convenient scale for building and playing with. The Tram Line model doesn't need glue or special tools or even toothpicks to connect parts, which makes putting it together even more exciting. Wind up the tram car and watch it move on the rails, entering into the Depot. After turning on 180 degree on the turntable, it moves on its own to the end of the line. There are no batteries inside: just gears, wheels, cranks, and rubber band engine! The stairs at the tram stop are removable and can be placed in any part of platform. The tram depot is equipped with a turntable for turning the tram on 180 degree for the next trip. The model even has a footbridge for pedestrian crossing. Number of parts: 284

Flight Starter details:

The mechanical launcher, which works best with light airplane models, features a unique design that was created using high-quality, sustainable plywood. Ergonomics ensure the launcher fits comfortably in your hand and makes it easy for you to launch with complete precision. A motor powered by a rubber band creates the tension that thrusts the plane into the air, and a winding crank allows you to choose how far your plane will fly. Depending on your preferences, planes launched with this flight kit can go as far as 30 meters or even further. Change the angle of the launch to create loops, rolls and more entertaining maneuvers. A safety mechanism on the trigger ensures you never launch until you're ready. The Flight Starter kit includes everything you need to create your launcher, as well as one plywood glider plane and two paper airplanes. You can also build your own lightweight airplanes to use with the launcher, which works best with planes made of paper, cardboard, balsa wood, and other light materials. Number of parts: 198
