****The wings of the butterfly are colorless so that the client can paint them to the color they want. The color of the wings in the photo is a reference to how you can color them.
The UGears Butterfly 3D puzzle set is as unique as it is beautiful. Following the success of stunning moving mechanical horse, the UGears Horse Mechanoid set, we are expanding the boundaries of wooden mechanical puzzles’ possibilities. This Butterfly set is a yet unparalleled blend of nature and engineering, like many other UGears’ sets has more in store than first meets the eye and has all the potential to become an unforgettable gift for a friend or a colleague or a real treat for yourself. Prepare for an endless flow of questions from everyone that sees the Butterfly on your office desk or in your room at home. An elegant and colorful animated kinetic sculpture, it will never cease to amaze.
This stunning creature does move, but not like something you just had a blast assembling from pre-cut all-natural wood parts for a few hours, would move. Brought to life by a self-propelled rubber-band motor, this model moves to imitate the flutter and the flapping of wings of a real butterfly and doesn’t need any external power source.
Like other UGears 3D puzzle sets, the Butterfly is made from high-grade 100%-natural plywood, doesn’t require the use of any extra tools or materials, such as glue, at any stage of its assembly, and fills the room with an unmatched wooden aroma the second the box has been opened.
HOW UGEARS BUTTERFLY WORKS
Each part of the UGears Butterfly wooden 3D puzzle set fits together like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle with a pleasant clicking noise. It takes from 1 to 3 hours to assemble the Butterfly, and it comes with an illustrated tutorial in 11 languages.
The Butterfly is sitting on an elegant platform that also features the second character of our story, the flower, of course. The elastic support band slightly bounces the Butterfly which creates the ultra-realistic movements of this stunning model. The legs of the Butterfly play a key role in its movement. While the two front pairs move together with the fluttering wings, the back ones are the launch/stop levers of the rubber-band motor that sets the Butterfly in flight. The body of the butterfly has an open design like many other mechanical UGears sets, as it allows the viewers to watch the work of intricate and smart mechanisms in motion, as well as makes each model lighter.
The wings of the Butterfly are made from craft paper and come in two sets: the plain ones that you can color yourself and the pre-painted ones.
