The butterfly not only looks elegant on its own but can also be wound with a simple rubber band motor to bring it to life with gentle wing beats that beautifully imitate the flutters of its living counterparts. No glue, tools or external power sources are required; the kit comes with everything needed. Since the pieces fully interlock, the model can be built right away. The final result of construction is an elegant mechanical model with a tempting flower. Since the kit is made of real wood, it has a natural woodsy scent, which only heightens the delicate patterns of the leaves and other natural wonders.

The kit is perfect as an IQ game for adults and children over 14 years of age. Construction is also enjoyable as a family project, and it usually takes about 3 hours to complete. Start by gently removing the pre-cut natural plywood pieces from the sheets. Follow the included instructions or a UGears online tutorial to press each piece into place. Each section, the butterfly, stand and flower, is built separately and then attached with nearly invisible wooden clasps to keep everything in place. Once the rest of the model is built, choose between the pre-colored wings or color in your own to personalize the project. The beige wings come primed and ready for paint or other media.

After the challenge of putting together all those pieces, enjoy watching the tiny motor work to flutter the wings and twitch the legs. A crank at the base of the abdomen winds up the rubber band. Pressing together the butterfly's back legs releases the latch to allow the creature to take flight, but its flight can be paused by the counter motion, securing the motor in place with a touch. Craft paper flutters with stunning similarity to natural butterflies' wings, while strategic pins in the stand allow the model to achieve a full range of motion. The meager exterior of the insect's body allows young engineers and creative observers to note the workings of each gear, inspiring hours of imagination.

From intricate military models to gentle floral pieces, UGears specializes in creating engaging projects that anyone can enjoy. Each kit is carefully designed and produced so that it is eco-friendly and beautiful. Intricate, yet durable, the pieces hold up to many years of admiration. If the construction proves too difficult, help is always available from online step-by-step guides to free part replacement in case of emergencies or accidental breakage. Give friends and coworkers an interactive gift that they can be proud of, and don't forget to get one for yourself!
