UGears 4Kids Windmill
Seeking inspiration in the Netherlands' countryside, this amazing an open-style model windmill demonstrates simple mechanical concepts such as the mechanism of reducers and angular transmissions. Following the classic design of windmills with a wheel for drainage, the model is accommodated with interdependent moving elements: the mill's wings, with the help of the gear system that axis drive a drainage wheel with blades. Or the contrary, it’s possible to turn the water wheel and run in motion four wings of the windmill.

Color as you like: acrylic, gouache, watercolor, markers - you can use whatever you have (models don't come with paint or markers). Delicate contour lines on wooden parts make it easy to paint.
Cognitive and developing: Develops spatial thinking and fine motor skills. Captures the imagination of children for a long time.
Eco-friendly: is made of high quality wood, has a fragrant scent of wood and is pleasant to the touch.
Assembles easily: all component parts are already cut off and can be easily removed from the board. The model assembles like a puzzle without glue and special tools by following an illustrated color manual. While children are collecting some blocks, the adults can suggest their help: the joining parts are cut off precisely for the slots and for the assembly, you only need to insert the component pins, pressing them with your fingers. But if the fingers are too small, they may need some help. :)
UGears is a startup established in 2014 in Kyiv, Ukraine. Little over 5 years later, the collection has grown to almost 90 models of gorgeous, intelligent design. UGears has invented and patented their very own plywood joint design. The unique self-propelled mechanical model kits are designed for self-assembly without glue and made entirely of high-grade eco-friendly wooden material. The models are fun to assemble as well as educational, and can also serve as decorative pieces due to their aesthetically pleasing design. Inspired by steam-punk fantasy, the clear view of all the moving components, including gears and pendulums, creates a unique, unforgettable and fascinating look at everyday (and not so everyday) machinery.
