Discover the wonders of Dutch kinetic sculptor Theo Jansen with this new model kit from Gakken and their Otona no Kagaku (Adult Science) series. The Mini Strandbeest is a miniature version of Jansen's remarkable creation which moves just by the wind and its own engineering genius. No electricity or batteries help power this beautiful creature and Gakken's mini kit allows you to spend time exploring the design while you build it.
The original Strandbeest was constructed and showcased on the beach but you will be able to enjoy your mini version just about anywhere that has enough wind power to propel its unique movements. The kit is also simple enough that children and adults alike will be able to complete it.
