DIY Strandbeest kit in a Japanese hobby magazine

Francesco Fondi writes, "Last saturday Gakken celebrated the 10th anniversary of the series 'Otona no Kagaku': an hybrid of magazine and book with an educational toy attached to each release.

Beside showing the complete collection of the cult toys released in a decade, Toshiyuki Nishimura chef editor of the pubblication, presented the Animaris Imperio: a new kit based on Theo Jansen mechanical animals.

In the past Gakken already released two Strandbeeste kits but this time the model is not a scale replica of a real Theo Jansen self-propelling animal but a custom biped design created only for Japan."
