Pathfinders … Automaton Dragon

pf-aut-drag-a01While turning the crankshaft, the dragon body moves forward and back, while the wings flap, the legs move up and down, and the neck, tail and head move in a graceful motion. Children are encouraged to paint the creature or decorate it once assembled. This is our most difficult model to assemble.

Automata and whirligigs have important historical significance as devices of entertainment since the Victorian age. These devices are all hand operated which is common of those found in the museums, arcades and parlours of the 1800’s. Each product requires assembly which is a key feature of the experience. These are a great entry level product for children interested in mechanical fun.
