Automata are whimsical mechanical toys that move like they're alive when you turn the crank.

This Automaton Horse runs like the wind and kicks its legs up and down as it moves forward and back.

A classic toy that features geometric shapes and a simple design. Sure to get children excited about mechanics and invention!

This kit uses a linkage with only one joint to produce movement. There is also a window in the shape of a horse's head, so you can watch the crankshaft move. 

Bring to life the wonder of your own automata that you can uniquely decorate. You could decorate it with paints or textas to resemble a zebra, unicorn or a wild brumby - you're only limited by your imagination. Easy to make and fun to play with. 

Assembly takes 1 - 2 hours and your completed model will measure approximately 140 x 290 x 100mm.

This kit includes everything you'll need to build your automaton.*

  • Clear instructions
  • Pre-cut wood pieces
  • Strings
  • Screw-in hooks
  • Glue

 * Paints/textas not included.

Recommended for ages 8 and up. 

This amazing piece pays homage to the running horse with a cool automaton. It beckons you to turn the handle and to make the horse run like the wind!
