Ugears adds a new beast to its dinosaur automaton collection with the Triceratops ("three horned face"), a dynamic, mechanical DIY wooden model of the dominant herbivore of the late Cretaceous period. Like our Tyrannosaurus Rex model, the Triceratops is driven by a metal spring which transmits power through a reduction gear, turning the axle that drives the four legs. An eccentric gear sets the tail swaying in synchronous motion with the legs, helping the dinosaur walk smoothly, just as in nature.

This amazing walking dinosaur model is a wind-up DIY wooden 1:32 scale model of a full-grown Triceratops. A winding key is concealed between the dinosaur's shoulder blades. Remove the key and insert into either of the circular ratchet mechanisms located on either side of the dinosaur's belly. Hint: if the legs are blocking the winding slot, wind from the other side, or press the "Start" button and spin the large gear under the dinosaur's belly to advance the legs until the winding slot is clear. Press the "Stop" switch and give six or seven full twists of the key to wind the spring, then return the key to its position between the shoulder blades. Place the Triceratops on a smooth, flat surface, holding the automaton gently by the tail, push the "Start" switch down and release. Your Triceratops will saunter away, its tail swinging jauntily, its enormous head and frill bobbing and its jaws snapping. Perhaps it's trying to escape danger— a hungry Tyrannosaur or an exploding volcano? Or maybe your Triceratops is in search of greener pastures? It takes a lot of ferns and cycads to fill the belly of a 9 tonne beast! This lumbering scale giant can cover up to 90-100 cm with each winding.

The Triceratops and Tyrannosaurus Rex models will be joined by other Ugears dinosaurs in the near future, allowing you to build your own Cretaceous Park of prehistoric animals. These delightful and somewhat terrifying models are sure to fire the imagination of any child, sparking their interest in natural history. Besides these wonderful walking dinosaurs, you'll find models for every taste and interest in the Ugears catalogue of 3D puzzles, DIY model kits, automatons, robots, wooden puzzle boxes and STEM Lab model kits.
