The globe by Eco Wood Art in the blue version. The mechanical model is assembled from 393 parts and is exactly what you would expect from a globe: a 3D model of the earth. You can see all continents and with the help of markings of the most important cities you get to know the continents and thus the world better. The globe rotates on its own axis just as you can expect from a globe.
The beautifully designed base is adorned with some interesting facts about the earth. There is also a secret compartment in the base, the lever of which is only accessible by turning a gear.
The globe is offered in two versions: In blue like this one or in a version in brown.
Age recommendation: from 14 years
Number of parts: 393
Model size: 50, 5 x 32, 0 x 32,0 cm
Simple assembly without any glue (possibly pliers and cutter / penknife recommended)
Contents: Environmentally friendly birch plywood, rubber bands, wax, wooden pens, clips, toothpicks, sandpaper and picture-by-picture assembly instructions.
Material: wood, rubber, wax
The model can also be painted with wood paints (not included). It is important, however, that the joints are not stuck together with dried paint.
The assembly requires a bit of handy skill, as the sometimes filigree components have to be joined together with controlled force from time to time. If the procedure is too careless or rough, individual parts can be irreparably damaged. Here, as with other model building parts, the following applies: Take a close look at the assembly instructions, less force, more patience and a precise approach.
Notes on the manufacturer:
EWA - Eco Wood Art designs unusual and creative construction kits with loving attention to detail and produces them itself. The environmentally friendly mechanical models, decorative puzzles and toys made from renewable birch wood are made of plywood panels. The respective panels are created using the laser cut process and some are decorated. The individual parts can be easily separated from the plywood panels and put together without the use of adhesives. The mechanical functions are realized with rubber bands (e.g. winding motors) or with gear wheels and bring them to life with movements. If you want, you can even paint the objects with wood paint and make them even more individual.
Not suitable for children under 3 years as small parts can be swallowed.
