Build your own wiggling, motorized monsters that you control.
This 130 piece motorized set is a great way to learn about building with cogs and gears while making creatures that are controlled by the hand set. There are easy to follow color coded instructions to build four different moving creatures, using the colorful gears, chomping teeth, silly springs, whiskers, flashing lights and even scary, glow-in-the-dark eyeballs. Or get creative and design your own creature - ideal starter for future Frankensteins!
