Here are just a few ideas of what you can make with the different kits – if you are looking for more information please see our detailed help section with examples, 3D views and full descriptions of all the parts and their uses.

FAQ

What's in the kit?

The kits include everything you will need to start creating your own designs. 

Please see the ‘Product Info’ section on each product page for full details of what’s included.

What are the delivery options?

We deliver to all major areas in South Africa – delivery to any major city or town is free and usually takes 2-4 days for main centres & 5-7 days for regional areas. If you live on a farm or in an embassy the couriers have a hefty surcharge so rather check with us beforehand.

Do I need to know how to DIY?

No! 

We have detailed information on all the different pieces of hardware to get you started in our help section, and once you know how to bolt 2 pieces together you are good to go. 

 Remember the best way to learn is by playing!

What if I lose some pieces?

The nuts & bolts included in our kits are a little easier for small fingers to handle compared to the normal ones you’ll find, but we designed the kits to use standard sizes that you can find at any hardware store (6mm diameter).

You can also grab an Extra Parts add-on to supplement your kits with a few spares / extras for more possibilities.

Are there instructions?

We have some examples of designs you can make, as well as  some 3D views of the more complex models. You can also zoom in to view close ups of how the parts go together.

Can I use it in my school / practice?

Yes – if you want to buy multiple kits please get in touch – we offer a 15% discount to educational and similar institutions.
