Item Description...
A bravura display of imagination by Rob Ives has produced thisdelightful collection of working automata to cut out and make. As you operate the mechanisms, the Hopping Sheep hop energetically and the Pecking Hen pecks keenly into its feeder. The rather sad Motley Man bows and acknowledges the applause he has earned, while the Flying Fish undulates in a delightfully unexpected manner. Each of the mechanisms use a different principle to generate motion.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
amusement for the easily amused  Sep 11, 2008
Four paper models ... all you need is an X-acto knife, scissors, a glue stick, and a lot of patience and spare time.

Hopping sheep: like the valvetrain of a single overhead cam engine, except that the tappets make sheep hop up and down instead of actuating valves.

Pecking hen: simple to build but not very interesting.

Motley man: complicated for what it does (he just takes a bow.)

Flying fish: has to be seen to be believed. Looks like it's simultaneously swimming and flying when animated.
This is a Blast!  Jan 28, 2008
I bought this book for a young boy. I just loved it myself. Nice to have children do something besides video games.
Great fun and rare paper model book  Aug 23, 2007
These four working models are simple to make and a lot of fun to operate. The mechanisms are cams and levers and the resulting models are easy to use and, especially in the case of the flying fish, have unexpectedly fluid movement. One small complaint I have (and the reason for the dropped rating) is that the pre-printed colors are very bright and not always appropriate to the model.
