Round and round and back to where it all began … Take a trip to your childhood memories with this beautiful nostalgic model, the Carousel.
This outstanding model is a look at the classic merry-go-round implemented in top quality wood. The familiar and beloved fairground ride is presented with highly detailed design. Here you will find two types of carousel horses that rock up and down as the model spins. The core of the model is a centre pole that rotates in a direction opposite to the main platform making it look as if the carousel spins faster than it really does and creates the fascinating dynamics of the whole construction. The pole rises over the roof making it visually more delicate and at the same time giving it more volume. Add little birds soaring over the roof of the carousel along with decorative flying lanterns and you may just sense the aroma of hot dogs and cotton candy!
As for the technical aspects, the Carousel is based on the same principle as most Ugears self-propelled models: all parts of the puzzle are joined without glue or additional tools and the motion energy is provided by a rubber band motor. The Carousel has a wind-up key under its base that provides tension to the rubber bands attached to the main axle. The pendulum gears down the axle and makes the movement of the modules and details smoother. The main axle is connected to the central pole via the planetary gear that ensures that it rotates in the direction opposite to the main platform. The roof is also attached to the main axle and crankshafts that make the horses go up and down while spinning around the central pole.
It is great fun to observe the model in motion, but if you are one of those people who like to see with their hands, you can rotate the Carousel manually. This will allow you to examine every detail in slow motion and give you a full comprehension of how the mechanism works.
Made of sustainable high grade wooden materials, the Carousel is a perfect gift for someone who wants to turn away from daily stress and for a few hours feel the carefree magic of the fair. Put it together, wind it up and we guarantee you will hear that music, feel the buzzing atmosphere of the holiday fair and remember how much joy it was to ride your favourite horse on its happy round and round trip!The Bike VM-02 is driven by a powerful rubber band motor that makes the motorcycle ride for as much as 3 meters in one winding. The energy produced by the motor is transmitted by a belt drive to the mechanism. The design of the Bike allows you to observe the work of the mechanism, including the moving pistons that look absolutely fascinating.
The wide back wheel ensures that the model is steady and won’t tip over. Turning handlebars send your bike in whatever direction you choose making your ride even more exciting. When you reach your final destination and it is time to park your motorcycle, use a centre stand to set the model on the shelf. A motorcycle has never been merely a means of transportation – it’s always been and will forever represent a challenge, speed and true freedom. Create the spirit of the road with your own hands. Hold on to your handlebars and breathe in the smell of highway with the new Bike model from Ugears.
