Each of the winning models is a realistic, fully functioning work of art!
Hurdy-Gurdy is made with natural, eco-friendly wood materials and consists of 292 pieces. But the most exciting feature of this models is not its intricate design or sophisticated moving elements. Hurdy-Gurdy is a real musical instrument! Just imagine that you can build your own “crank organ” and play music on it after the fun of assembly is over.
Hurdy-Gurdy playing mechanism is the same as in the real Hurdy-Gurdy. To get the music flowing, simply crank the handle with one hand while using fingers on the other hand to push the wooden buttons. The rubber-band mechanism activates moving gears that create friction with the strings and produce sound!
The other Family Choice Awards 2018 winner is UGears U-9 GRAND PRIX CAR.
This model is an exact replica of vintage race cars. To set it in motion, simply crank up the rubber band motor, release the lever and watch U-9 GRAND PRIX CAR race ahead! Enjoy the view of the GRAND PRIX exposed working engine with its moving shafts and gears, just like the ones in a real race car.
