Stock Number Item Description Availability Price Order Qty
This 14" tall wood Automata (mechanical toy) has a look and action that hearkens back to Leonardo da Vinci’s early sketches for flying machines. Turn the wooden crank forward or back and the aviator on his winged chair rocks back and forth as his arms move the graceful wings.

Made entirely from compressed pinewood (even the gears), all parts snap easily out of the wooden templates and the instructions are easy to follow—expect it to take about an hour for completion. This is an extremely fun and (minimally) challenging project for parents and kids to work on together, and a gift that will delight your little ones—everyone will want to take a turn. Not recommended for children under 10 years old, due to the complexity and number of parts.

WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD. Toy Contains Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.

  • The Flying Dreamer : perfect for parent-child building together.

    Richard, 6/1/2019 Excellent merchandise at a reasonable price, or, in my neighborhood, "good stuff cheap." Nice do it together project that can be displayed for years to come.
  • Very happy first time customer

    Mark Tucker, 1/16/2019 The item is absolutely delightful and even better looking in real life than it looked on the website. In case you're wondering, you don't have to paint it, the pieces come pre-dyed. Very nice quality and fun!
  • A gift from Christmas Past

    Susan Chesnut , 12/13/2018 As a child I watched my big brother put together countless models, many of them balsa wood. He recently retired as a commercial airline pilot and now he has time to devote to his hobby of wood working. When I saw the “Flying Dreamer” it had his name all over it. We have always been very close and enjoy giving one another gifts that remind us of our childhood. I wish I could be there to see his face when he opens this one. It’s a wonderful toy for a grown little boy.
  • Poor Instructions

    Sid Hochman, 11/9/2018 Looks like a really FUN item. I understood that this requires construction. Upon receipt I found a bag full of what seemed to be hundreds of small pieces, (I did not open the bag to count.), and a set of instructions that consisted of a series of photographs that showed assembled sections with no indication of which pieces were used or in what order. You are supposed to figure this out by recognizing the pieces in the photos. I have been a model builder for most of my life and these are the poorest assembly instructions I have ever seen. I reluctantly returned the product.
