Publisher Description:

Before there were steam-powered engines and paved roads, there were horses. Strong and majestic, horses have been used as a means of transportation for centuries. UGears sought to tell the story of the reliability of these animals when they created the Horse-Mechanoid model kit. Maybe you just love horses and the way their tails sway as they graze the pastures. Perhaps you've long been a rider and want to create something uniquely related to your passion. It could be that you simply love the history of horses as a mode of transport. Whatever reason it is that you enjoy these tall, powerful, and nurturing creatures, you can't skip this entrancing, steampunk-inspired horse model kit.

Category Description for Ugears Wooden Mechanical Model Kits:

Fully-functional mechanical models from nothing but laser-cut plywood? It sounds sketchy, and perhaps even fragile, but there's nothing amateur about these high-quality kits. Each box contains several sturdy wooden sheets of laser-cut pieces, with each piece numbered according to its chronological use in the instruction booklet. The booklet itself is the veritable pice de resistance of the kits, utilizing full-color 3D illustrations, "magnified" steps for small pieces, a straightforward labeling system, and helpful symbols for tricky steps. Once completed, the scale model operates just like the real thing, mimicking behavior as closely as 1/8th-inch plywood (and a few extra bits) can. Safes have combination locks, engines push pistons, and vehicles feature functioning transmission and rubber-band powered motors. All components are natural and sustainably-sourced. Oh, and did we mention the holy grail of model construction? No glue required.

The kits provide a range of complexity (between 1-12 hours), with 14 being the youngest recommended age for completing all models solo. With limited adult supervision or model-making experience, most kits can be completed by those as young as 11 or 12 and are durable enough for extended use. All models are beautifully designed and just about the right size for pretend play, and they can even be painted using watercolors or other thin paints! And of course, at the forefront of each and every lovingly crafted kit is a dedication to mechanics: you're not just putting it together; you're learning how it functions.

My 13 year old loves these projects. She's completed two so far - both purchased from Rainbow Resource - and loves the challenge of these more complex models.
