Paper automata are not just toys. They are works of art and demonstrations of science. A lot of thought goes into the design of every model. Pull the levers, turn the crank and watch with delight as the model springs into life.
They are constructed from paper rather than plastic. Paper is lightweight, strong, easy to work with and environmentally friendly. They also teach the mechanical principles of levers and gears.
