Get ready for a new and exciting challenge! The UGears Butterfly comes as 168 pre-cut pieces that are ready to be assembled into natural beauty. The butterfly not only looks elegant on its own but can also be wound with a simple rubber band motor to bring it to life with gentle wing beats that beautifully imitate the flutters of its living counterparts. No glue, tools, or external power sources are required; the kit comes with everything needed. Since the pieces fully interlock, the model can be built right away. The final result of the construction is an elegant mechanical model with a tempting flower. Since the kit is made of real wood, it has a natural woodsy scent, which only heightens the delicate patterns of the leaves and other natural wonders.
The mechanical Butterfly model kit is perfect as an IQ game for adults and children over 14 years of age. Construction is also enjoyable as a family project, and it usually takes about 3 hours to complete. Start by gently removing the pre-cut natural plywood pieces from the sheets. Follow the included instructions or a UGears online tutorial to press each piece into place. Each section, the butterfly, stand, and flower, is built separately and then attached with nearly invisible wooden clasps to keep everything in place. Once the rest of the model is built, choose between the pre-colored wings or color on your own to personalize the project. The beige wings come primed and ready for paint or other media.
