Cool Thing of the Month

Flying Pig

Flying Pig
Yes, pigs will fly... when you finish building this fun little project. Flying Pig Paper Animation Kits come flat in a booklet, with easy to follow step-by-step instructions. You just cut, fold, glue and assemble the pieces. All you need are scissors, white school glue, a ruler, and a craft knife.

Designed by Rob Ives, a British school teacher, they are a great introduction to machine mechanics and have been widely used by teachers as a learning aid. At home, Flying Pig Animation Kits make for a few hours of good old fashioned fun for both children and adults.

In addition to Mister Pig, there are many more models to make... each one full of "whimsy and humour." Available for under 4 Pounds Sterling directly from the www.flying-pig.co.uk web site.
