Create your very own miniaturised cable car! This is recycling at its finest. All you need to complete this impressive motorised creation is an empty drinks can… everything else is provided in the box! The kit includes a motor, string, pulley wheels, elastic bands, and all the nuts and bolts required.
Once assembled you can install it anywhere in your home and watch it glide along back and forth between two points. It’s the perfect size for a small family pet such as a hamster, stick insect, or gerbil to hitch a ride (Only joking: please, please don’t put an animal inside the tin can cable car!)
Anybody aged 8 and above will love taking on this project. It’s a really cool kit that any child or teenager will be able to complete plus it’s really satisfying to see the cable car running back and forth when it's completed. It encourages recycling, creativity, and fun… it’s the perfect gift.
