The Totally Glueless Magnificent Flying Machine is an automaton – a moving machine – which is made entirely from cardboard. The kit comes in a box with everything you need to get it working. Push out the pieces from the frame and slot them together by following the instructional poster – there’s even a video which you can watch if you get a bit stuck. Once assembled, turn the handle to watch the machine ‘fly’.
There is no plastic so all the waste is completely compostable or recyclable.
The Magnificent Flying Machine is suitable for adults and children alike although it can be described more as an interactive ornament than a toy. The flying machine will delight anyone but is most suited to people over the age of eight. Younger children will certainly love it but will find it difficult to assemble without the help of an older person making it a fabulous project for the family.
We have given it a difficulty rating of 3 out of a possible 5.
