Wooden automata are not just toys. They are works of art and demonstrations of science. Pull the levers, turn the crank and watch with delight as the model springs into life.
All Modelshop collections recall poignant moments in history. They are equally appealing to adults and children.
They are made from precision-cut, high-quality recyclable pine wood and require no tools to assemble. They also teach the mechanical principles of levers and gears.
About the designer: Keith Newstead, born in 1956 in the U.K, was fascinated with penny arcades during his childhood. The machines he saw there inspired him to become an automata designer.
After decades in the field, Keith Newstead has become a worldwide master automata designer. His works are very artistic and many famous brands have asked him to work on creative collaborations. His automate can be seen in the British Museum, the Tower of London, and the U.K.'s National Gallery.
