|Teeter Totter by Saka KarakuriThe first steps of a budding ‘bot
This is Saka’s most popular model. The adorable robot walks as the crank is turned. Kawaii!
|Climate Change by Saka KarakuriA penguin attempts to escape the thawing tundra!
Turn the crank and the penguin helplessly repeats his attempts to lift-off. Sadly, our darkly humorous penguin is not equiped to fly.
|Doomed by Saka KarakuriTurn the crank and this fish flops helplessly on the cutting board. Sad, but darkly humorous.|
A little more about the prize… These kits are original Japanese karakuri or “trick mechanism” by Keisuke Saka, one of the world’s best paper engineers. Saka’s beautiful designs use only a few moving parts, yet produce elegant (and darkly humorous!) movement. Saka paper automata models are easy to do with complete illustrated instructions. Just cut out, fold, glue and assemble. Recommended for ages 12 and up (younger with adult help).
