We’re excited to introduce the first in our range of Tinker Tiles kits. The Buzzing Gecko is based on one of our many beautiful NZ native Geckos. You can paint or decorate the lasercut wooden body with any colours you like, then glue it all together. Flip it over and wire up our Tinker Tiles to make it all buzz around. We have included a wooden counter weight that you can experiment with – make the Gecko hum, buzz or jump by “tuning” the wooden pieces.
After your child has had enough, they can remove the tiles and reuse them in another project such as a drawing bot. Or make a fan. Or whatever their imaginations and the internet can provide! Even without the electronics, the Gecko is a standalone art project.
We will be bringing out more Tinker Tiles projects in 2020, so keep the tiles and add to your collection!
The kit includes a make your own wooden battery box (to fit one AA battery – not included), a switch tile, motor tile, wires, screws and lasercut Gecko kit. Once we sell out, we can not guarantee delivery for Christmas but you can backorder and we will get them to you as soon as we can.
