If you think you’ve seen it all, wait until you see our 3D mechanical puzzles. Over the past few years, the best companies in the world have invested heavily in technology to create new forms, shapes, materials, and gears. Thus, every year we have new models that move, take pictures, roar, play music, keep time, etc. These 3D puzzles may look simple, but they are the result of the joint effort of engineers, architects, designers, and artists. After all, we are talking about articles that serve three purposes.
As cool as 3D mechanical puzzles are, they still are puzzles. Thus, you get all the fun of assembling them. Once you are done, you get to play or exhibit your creation. As if that was not enough, your creation will move or light up, amongst other things. That is why these puzzles are such great gifts. You are giving something new and sophisticated. We have 3D mechanical puzzles for kids and adults. Evidently, we have models that are great family projects. Nothing pulls the family together as having fun while creating!
3D Movable Animals
Robotime is the number one producer of 3D mechanical puzzles in China. They’ve developed an incredible line of 3D puzzles of dinosaurs that move, walk, and roar. Robotime produces each 3D puzzle with care and using only eco-friendly wood. They’ve created a genius mechanism that allows the dinosaurs to move. To activate it, all you have to do is clap! We have a Mammoth, Apatosaurus, Stegosaurus, Triceratops, and a fearsome Tyrannosaurus Rex. Children and adults love these models. That’s why assembling one is a perfect family project.
Ugears calls itself 3D puzzle engineer. We agree! The Ukrainian company is obsessed with top quality wooden mechanical 3D puzzles. They’ve created sophisticated yet simple rubber band mechanisms. They have a gorgeous butterfly that flutters its wings and moves its front legs towards a lovely flower. Assembling one is such a rewarding challenge you will want to share with your loved ones. Another of our favorites is the 3D mechanical horse made of quality sustainable wood. The mechanism that allows the puzzle to move like the real animal is in the horse’s heart.
3D Puzzles of Robots
There is something about robots that we all humans love. Who hasn’t dreamt of having one home? Now you can! Robotime has a line called Rokr 3D Wooden Puzzle that will take your breath away. Orpheus, the 3D puzzle wooden robot, is a one of a kind classic. The robot walks, plays music, and lights up! This key wind music box with moving gears and light is made in eco-friendly polished wood. Since lasers cut the pieces, they fit like a glove. Thus, you don’t need additional tools or glue. However, batteries are not included.
Orpheus, aka the saddest music machine, will take your breath away. Robotime has done a fantastic job combining technology and design. That’s what happens when engineers and artists work together. The robot has a vintage retro look that appeals to both kids and adults. Designed for kids 14 years old up, it has 221 wooden pieces. However, younger kids can assemble it under the supervision of adults. Once done, activate your model with the hand crank and see it in all its glory illuminated and walking while playing Cycle of Happiness.
3D Puzzles with Solar Panels
Robotime produces incredible 3D wooden mechanical puzzles under the brand ROKR. One of its most successful lines includes movable 3D puzzles with solar panels. That’s right: we have solar energy powered space cars. Begin your collection today, and get the four models: the Vagabond, the Navitas, the Harbinger, and the Rambler Rover. The authentic space vehicles inspired these creative models. Each comes with microcrystalline silicon solar panels to propel it.
The set comes with everything you need to assemble your 3D puzzle, including easy to follow instructions. It’s better to place the panels under the sun (or proper light) before assembling your puzzle. These toys are so pretty that we like to call them art that moves. Recommended for kids 8 years and up, since they require fine motor skills to assemble. That’s why it’s so much fun! Younger kids should work supervised by adults. However, not recommended for small children.
3D Kinetic Energy Puzzles
Kinetic energy puzzles are more than just a toy. These engineering art pieces convert potential energy into kinetic energy. That’s why they are educational toys for kids. However, adults love them too since they get to relax and soothe their minds. Besides, they look wonderful. ROKR has a wooden marble run for everyone in the family. These are the ROKR Marble Run Waterwheel Coaster, Lift Coaster, Tower Coaster, and Cog Coaster. You don’t have to choose: they are all fantastic.
Each Robotime 3D mechanical marble run is made of eco-friendly and responsibly sourced wood. As you know, the company excels in mechanical gears and 3D wooden puzzles. In fact, that’s why their ROKR brand specializes in mechanical gears. Everything you need comes in the box. All you have to do is set some alone time, enroll your kids or partner, and assemble your 200 plus piece puzzle. Once done, use the handle to activate the mechanism and move the marbles. You will want to get the four models and to gift them to your loved ones.
3D Puzzles of Clocks, Cameras and Boxes
Robotime has a collection of the most original objects, including more than one music box 3D wooden puzzle. Besides, ROKR has a steampunk music and treasure box collection that will steal your heart. The collection includes calendars, lanterns, and an incredible ROKR Vitascope Mechanical Movie Projector Kit. How cool is that? If you are looking for a clock, we recommend two models: a ROKR pendulum clock, and a lovely owl clock. Both are actual clocks that work. The owl needs batteries (not included), while the pendulum uses gravity. That’s why it works for 1 to 3 hours.
The other company that has premium mechanical wooden puzzles is Ugears. They’ve got a dazzling collection of items. Ugears considers its treasure box their absolute best, and we agree. The box looks elegant and is a great gift in itself. However, a lot of our customers place gifts inside it to surprise their loved ones. In any case, this Ugears puzzle is also a safe. You can store your secrets and jewelry inside. To open the box, activate the mechanical gear. You will see the mechanism move without a glitch and, as the box opens, smell fresh wood.
