Sykes is on the Isle for an unusual problem - unusual in that we did not detect it until he had been completed. When turned on by using the power switch, in addition to his various roars and other sounds, Sykes wags his tail, bows up and down, and opens and closes his mouth. He'll continue to do so randomly for a couple of minutes, and then stop. At this point you'd normally hit his button to have him start again, but his button does not work at all. To reset, you'll need to turn the power off & back on again. If you're planning on a dinosaur for your desk (and let's face it, don't we all need one?) this would be a minor inconvenience.
He's around 8" long and 6" high. His handmade hat and ankle bands are real leather, and other ornamentation may include gears, clock parts, and bits of interesting hardware. Please note that his winding key is strictly ornamental and does NOT turn.
All Critters come with a Care & Feeding card with their name, number, and an explanation of their switch and/or other functions. Operates on 3 AAA batteries (included).
About the Isle of Misfit Critters: Sometimes we notice a functional problem after a Critter has been completed, but it still does work to some extent. We would rather someone enjoy them as they are, so we will sell them at a reduced price. They are still numbered and named, so they remain true Clockwork Critters.
Clockwork Critters are artwork based on re-purposed animated children’s toys. The base animals are mostly plastic, which have been hand-painted to look like metal through a variety of faux-finishing techniques. Each Critter is individually numbered and named, and is one-of-a-kind. Because their ornamentation may be sharp, pointy, or break-off-and-swallowable, they are NOT meant for children.
