Whimsical and artistic toys designed by master artists, featuring intricate moving parts turned by a hand crank. Although not strictly true automata (as they don't move on their own) they are still fascinating mini-machine kits that use cams, gears, ratchets and cranks to make the toy move. Once assembled, turn the crank, and the models come to life!
Depending on the response to these, there are a few more models we may add, including a giant Steampunk Pegasus. We will not be taking them to every show, due to the size of the samples.
