Automakits - what are they?

Automakits are automata (mechanical toys or models) in self - assembly kit form, the basic material used being wood.

Each kit is designed to develop an interest in and understanding of simple mechanical principles involving cams, linkages, levers and gears etc. and comes complete with fully illustrated step by step instructions.

All the pieces are pre-cut ready to assemble. All you need is some wood (P.V.A.) glue, a couple of hours and some enthusiasm!

At Automakits we take pride in the fact that our models are available nowhere else in the world, thus ensuring you of a very unusual and totally unique gift.

There are five Automakits in the range at present, ranging from "The Batty Bat" (the simplest) through to "Beating the Bug" ( a challenge for the more practised or adventurous!).
They are particularly suitable for children aged 8 years and over, being specifically designed to meet the requirements of National Curriculum Technology (United Kingdom):

"Pupils should be taught how simple mechanisms can be used to produce different types of movement"

(extract from National Curriculum Design & Technology Key Stage 2)

However, we appreciate that not everybody wants the "hands on" experience so we offer the two most complex kits ("Coming Out of the Closet" & "Beating the Bug") as ready made gifts.
Both of the "Automagifts" are complete, boxed, painted and fully working models ready to give or receive as a totally unique present.

Please feel free to look at the range of models but be sure to check back regularly as new Automakits are in the pipeline.

For your convenience, we offer a shopping cart facility and a secure server where you can order today using any major credit card. Please note that the prices shown are what you pay (including air mail delivery anywhere in the world!)
We dispatch the same day so you won't have long to wait to receive your Automakit.

Finally, be sure to check out the "Special Offers" for great savings on multiple orders - but hurry as these are for a limited period.
