Something different from Totally Glueless.


Printed, cut and assembled to order — you choose the type of cat and then add the name to the back panel. It is then printed, cut and assembled using thin card and some metal. Unlike the Magnificent Machine kits, it is designed to be cut on a cutting machine rather than being mass produced in a factory. This means that it’s very slow to cut each one but the cuts can be much closer together. Also, as I’m the one assembling it, I can use tweezers to put it together and also use some metal (stainless steel and copper) for some of the mechanism – this keeps it small and strong.

Although the The Cat and Mouse automaton can be enjoyed by everyone, it’s more of an interactive ornament rather than a toy. This is because there might be some sharp edges to the metal inside.

Here's the Cat and Mouse automata in use. This also shows the special ratchet mechanism which stops any damage from happening if the handle is turned the wrong way! 

Here is a, heavily edited, video showing how the Cat and Mouse automata is assembled.
