The Flying Unicorn, also known as the Alicorn, has been a mythical creature through the ages – from Greek myths to modern day Princess Celestia and Swift Wind. We pay homage to the Unicorns that grace the coats of arms of many nations, and call on you to explore your magical art skills and make and paint this whimsical beast. Easy to assemble in an hour or two, this kit uses a single linkage to make the movement. There is even a unicorn-head shaped window to see how the crankshaft works. A great STEAM kit – combining art and science!
Designed for kids of all ages to explore the principles of mechanics, get some hands-on model making skills and celebrate the free spirit of the flying Unicorn!
As with all of our automata, it is easy to make and fun to play with. A great gift for unicorn enthusiasts and those who want to be a unicorn owner at a fraction of the cost. (Like all of our hoofed animal automata kits, this one has been pre-fed and could run for years!)
Age Rating: 8+ While this kit can be made by youngsters starting around 8 years old (and younger), we like that it is both interesting and compelling for kids of all ages – right up to those in their 90’s! We’re all children at heart! A great kit for parents and kids to make together! Good for beginner model makers.
