The Strandbeest concept was created by Theo Jansen and is wind powered. No electricity or batteries help power this beautiful creature and allows you to spend time exploring the design while you build it. See the large scale Strandbeest variants below.
Make your own Mini Strandbeest that walks with the wind or by hand. This model is made of plastic, includes illustrated and written instructions, and requires no special tools. Assembly time is approximately 90 minutes and is suggested for ages 8 and up. Assembled dimensions are: height (back of the beast): 11cm (4.3"), Height (top of propeller): 17cm (6.7"), Width: 13cm (5.1"), Length: 20cm (7.9").
