Make your own Jumping Horse Wooden Automata Series

Automata are whimsical mechanical toys that have a cool, life-like movement when their crank is turned. This horse automata runs like the wind and kicks its legs up and down as it moves forward and back

Designed for kids of all ages to explore the principles of mechanics, get some hands-on model making skills, and celebrate the free spirit of the galloping gelding.

Bring to life the wonder of your own automata that you can decorate. Paint it to resemble a zebra, a unicorn, a mustang or a magical horse, the choice is yours.

  • Great educational kit
  • All pieces are pre-cut and ready to go, only ruler and scissors required.
  • Easy to make in about an hour by beginner model makers
  • Natural, untreated wood, and plywood.
  • Finished size is 14cm x 29cm x 30cm 

A part of North American tradition, running horses have been featured in western movies, fairy tales, constellations, and fancy drinks with umbrellas. We pay homage to the running horse with a cool automaton that beckons you to turn the handle and run like the wind!

You can colour it with magic markers, or even paint it up to resemble a zebra or unicorn. Easy to assemble in an hour or two, this kit uses a single linkage to make the movement. There is even a horse head shaped window to see how the crankshaft works.

As are all of our automata, this is easy to make and fun to play with. A great gift for horse owners and those who want to be a horse owner at a fraction of the cost. (This kit has been pre-fed and could run for years!)
