Sleepy Farmer Wooden Automata


Build a fully working automata designed for first time builders.

They'll love it because:

  • The pieces are big and chunky and there is no glue required.
  • The movement is excellent - the characters really come to life.
  • They can unbuild and rebuild the kits to see what is happening.

Let younger children enjoy the experience of making a moving model with these amazing kits based on the ever popular Shaun The Sheep.

This is the sleepy farmer - a great model that uses gears to make the sheep dance around the farmer who has taken a break in the wheel barrow.

Made with larger, chunkier pieces, these models require no glue to put them together. Just located the pieces and slot them in, which means that they can be unbuilt and built again to really cement the principles. Once created, children will be able to see their model move, using all the engineering principles that the more complex models use, including cams, linkages and cogs.

A great way of introducing younger children to automata with excellent results.

This video shows children exploring the kits in this range:
