I have jus finished a mad week designing and making four new automata kits. They have been designed specificaly for children, something I try to avoid in my work as it is hard not to be patronising when thinking of 8 year olds at my ripe old age.Fortunatly for me the child within me is a dominant force so I had a nice week playing.

The characters can be removed from the mechanical parts and posed in different positions, givng play options

They have been influenced by the films Star Wars and Robots

Please excuse the fact that I forgot which year we are in on the video credits, it has been a long week,
