Strandbeest Kit

"""Aw, it's a babyThe fantastic Theo Jansen is world-renowned for his creations consisting of PVC pipes, wood, and various plastics. The resulting concoctions spring to life with the slightest breeze and walks the earth on hundreds of tiny feet all on its own. A beautiful amalgamation of art and engineering, these Strandbeest vary in size ranging from the size of small animals to behemoths of incredible proportion. Regardless of size, they all maintain baffling intricacies that make them seem alive. It is said that, when two Strandbeests (Strandbeesten? Strandbeesties?) love each other very much, a little baby Strandbeest emerges. Sadly, most of us don't have access to Theo's boney brood, but we can be parents yet! With the Strandbeest kit, you could create and give birth to an adorable wind powered baby beast all on your own. It'll take on a life of its own, waking when the breeze blows and sleeping when the air is still. Watch as your little beast slowly makes its way around your desk and into your heart.
