Whether you’re looking for a stimulating pastime for yourself this holiday or a great gift for a friend or loved one, it can be a tricky process with so many products available online. So, with this in mind, we’re here to make your search that much simpler by introducing you to the Playables range of self-assembly 3D mechanical wooden models.
You don’t have to be a modelling genius to enjoy one of our self-assembly wooden models, as we have a range of choices to suit you, whether you’re a seasoned model-builder or someone who’s a beginner to the hobby. Here we take a look at what’s possible when 100% natural materials are put in the hands of talented design engineers.
Beginner Model Makers:
We begin with the mechanical wooden models that have been designed for novice model-builders, which are just as impressive and stimulating as our more complex options. Looking at models like the Geneva Drive and the Date Navigator you can see that despite being at the easier end of the scale, these wonderful self-assembly wooden creations feature moving parts and require nothing other than patience to piece together.
That’s because every single laser-cut piece of high-quality plywood is crafted so precisely that they don’t need any glue, nails, screws or even tools to construct. When we say self-assembly, we mean it in every sense of the word!
Intermediate Model Makers:
Now we move to the intermediate range, which features fantastic choices like the Chronograph and the Combine, which as you can see are intricate wooden models that are equally at home being used as a decoration for your home. These 3D mechanical wooden models can move under their own power too, as they get their energy from ingenious rubber-band motors, with some even able to travel several meters on one charge!
Challenging Models for Makers:
Lastly, we look at some of our most complex wooden models from the expert range, which include incredibly intricate options like the Locomotive and the Safe and Roadster. These impressive models echo some of the most iconic engineering designs from history and they’re ideal for those looking for a challenge.
Many hours of dedication has gone into creating our 3D wooden mechanical model range, with the designs allowing the viewer to see each cog and wheel spinning whilst the model is in motion. When you see it for yourself, we know you’ll be impressed!
In addition to the hours of stimulation you’ll have putting them together, these robust plywood creations are tough enough to offer hours of playtime fun. They won’t fall apart like other, more flimsy models will and can be enjoyed without fear of breaking them for years and years.
