Edu Toys presents the da Vinci Mechanical Model Kit. Leonardo da Vinci’s Mechanical Drum is a cart equipped with an amply sized drum. When pulled or set in motion the gears turn the two lateral drums which are fitted with peg cams. These pegs move ten sticks (five on each side) that in turn beats the drum. The pegs could be placed in various positions to alter the rhythm of the music.
The scientific genius of Leonardo da Vinci is brought to life through this series of articulated models. The inventions that inspired these snap-together replicas are taken from the pages of da Vinci’s priceless and awe-inspiring notebooks. All models are made of plastic and require no special tools. Manuals are very educational and teach how these inventions have evolved into what they are today. For Ages 8 and up.
