Fisherman Automata Kit
Turn the crank to help Uncle Buck catch the shark. The whimsical movements are powered by a fascinating series of clockwork mechanisms and the best part is, you get to build it all yourself.
Each kit starts with nearly 100 loose pieces in a box, and thanks to marvelous engineering and crystal clear instructions, no tools or glue are required to construct this 14" automaton. Simply snap the pieces together and enjoy the satisfaction of building a complex mechanical sculpture that actually moves.

Our products ship through a privately owned climate-controlled warehouse in San Diego, California.
We offer a variety of shipping methods from budget-friendly to price-doesn’t-matter. You can compare estimated costs and transit times once you begin the checkout process and enter your shipping address. Carrier options may vary based on your destination.
We strive to pack and ship all items within 24 hours of each order (Monday through Friday). However, we are a small team so during peak holiday season we kindly ask that you allow 3-5 days for your items to be sent on their way. Every box shipped from Art of Play is expertly packed by actual human beings (you can see their names written on your package slip). Everyone in our warehouse is paid a fair wage and treated with respect.
We will gladly offer a refund or store credit in exchange for any items returned within 30 days of the original order, as long as the items are still sealed in new condition. We cannot accept returns of opened or used items. Return shipping is the responsibility of the customer.
