The beloved kangaroo from Australia|
Tamiya presents the robot replica of the beloved kangaroo from Australia. This amazing kangaroo-robot jumps by moving its rear legs simultaneously to go forward. When walking slowly, it also uses its front legs (just like they do down under) and when running quickly, it uses its tail for balance. Legs and body on which the gearbox is mounted employ transparent-colored parts, giving the kangaroo a funky look. Reverse switch is also transparent, giving you a peek at the kangaroo's internal mechanisms.
Total length: 180mm Weight: 95g (w/ out batteries) Body material: ABS resin Two gears included, one for high speed and one for low speed. Motor and reverse switch also included. Screwdriver for assembly is included. Requires one R6/AA/UM3 battery (sold separately).
Playing with the Kangaroo|
Avoid running over slopes, bumpy roads or longhaired carpet. Run on flat, smooth surfaces. Watching its funny gait will provide you with loads of fun.
