Eco-Friendly, Educational Snail
This assembly kit creates an eco-friendly snail model which runs on the inertia stored by its flywheel, with no need for batteries or motor! Spin the drive wheel to start the drive unit's metal flywheel rotating, place the snail on the ground, and watch the flywheel power it forwards.

Bob or Fishtail - you decide!
The snail body and shell are realistically depicted using soft resin sheet. Simply attach the sheet to the drive unit, and the shaft via left and right crank bases. Altering the attachment direction of crank bases gives two different charming motions: the head bobs, or the body fishtails from side to side. Antennae on the head help the model turn when it encounters an obstacle. Includes everything needed for easy snap-fit/screw-together assembly.
★Approx. assembled dimensions are Length: 155mm, width: 57mm, height: 70mm.
★Max. running time: approx. 35 seconds
