A delightful and traditional style toy, the Dragon Model from Timberkits is eco friendly and fun to operate. Each eco-toy is made of real wood from sustainable sources and comes with full instructions for assembly. Once constructed, just turn the handle to make him move. A series of crank operated linkages enables the dragon to lunge forward, opening his jaws, with the tongue moving forward in a dramatic fashion. The Dragon is an enjoyable gift and a great project for anyone to work on. Can also be painted.
