Product Description

Design by Chico Bicalho, 1999

Here are some tips to enjoy your wired four-legged friend and get the most fun out of its fidgety existence. 

Katita was named after a female mutt in Rio who had just given birth to a litter of six puppies. She became a national hero in Brazil for having saved the life of a three-year-old boy that was being mauled by two vicious pit bulls. She was very badly hurt after fending off the beasts, but survived. This product is homage to Katita's courage. 

To wind up Katita, hold it in one hand, keeping the counterweight from spinning, while turning the key with the other hand. Katita works best when all four booties touch the ground approximately 2 3/4" (7 cm) from each other forming a square (from toe to toe). If the legs become loose, the tabs holding the legs to the body may be pinched with a pair of pliers. When the legs are tight, Katita gets jumpier and even more courageous.

Every once in a while, a bit of spray lubricant will keep the engine revving like crazy. Katita's favorite performing surfaces are marble tables or thin carpets; essentially any level surface will do. What it really loves is to tap dance on a pool table with other Katitas. Two or more Katitas together make a Katita-Herophilus party. 

Colors of feet and wind-up keys may vary
