The Totally Glueless Magnificent Dinosaur Machine is an automaton – a moving machine. 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 will even be a video which you can watch if you get a bit stuck. Once assembled, turn the handle to watch the Dinosaur walk and ROAR! Darwin the cat gets a bit scared by the roar and disappears down the chimney.

It is made entirely from cardboard so all the waste is completely compostable or recyclable.

The Magnificent Dinosaur Machine is suitable for adults and children alike although it can be described more as an interactive ornament than a toy. The walking machine will delight anyone but is most suited to people over the age of eight. Younger children will certainly love it but may 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 4 out of a possible 5.
