Strandbeest (Walks using only Wind for Power) (Includes ENGLISH Instructions)

Regular price $14.25

Strandbeest moves just by the wind and its own engineering genius. No electricity or batteries help power this beautiful creature and allows you to spend time exploring the design while you build it.

Strandbeest was created by Theo Jansen, and it's an amazing creature infused with the power of nature.  To see videos of the full-scale wind-powered creatures walking by the ocean please visit Theo's website

Make your own Mini Strandbeest that walks with the wind or by hand. This model is made of plastic, includes illustrated and written instructions, and requires no special tools. Assembly time is approximately 90 minutes and is suggested for ages 8 and up. Assembled dimensions are: height (back of the beast): 11cm (4.3"), Height (top of propeller): 17cm (6.7"), Width: 13cm (5.1"), Length: 20cm (7.9").

Special Note:  We used the standard easy-to-follow instructions (originally written in Mandarin), and successfully completed our Strandbeest using just the pictures.  To give you additional comfort, we also include an English translation of the written instructions (we did it ourselves, so you won't find it elsewhere on the internet).
