Your UGears Hexapod Explorer is a super cool, extra-terrestrial six-legged crawler!

Part robot, part insect, your model is driven by a powerful spring motor. Watch it walk up to 3 metres on it’s very own legs!

Your Hexapod is a champion walker, and with the ability to bear it’s own weight, it can navigate semi-rough terrain, just like a planetary robot!

To begin your build, pop out the high-grade wooden parts and follow the illustrated instructions - no glue required.

Then, wind the ratchet key on it’s underside to set it in motion by loading the strong metal spring that powers it’s walking action!

With rubber band foot pads to give it better traction when navigating smooth surfaces, you can adjust it’s speed by using the dial on its head.

Let it traverse around rough surfaces and obstacles that are 1-2cm high, then pick it up to see it’s legs come to life, flailing around just like a real crab or spider would do!

Everything you need to assemble your model is included in the box.

It’s a great way to learn basic principles of science and engineering, as well as biology from animal locomotion!
