Tim has been entertaining people of all ages since 1969. Based on the science of Leonardo Da Vinci’s Ornithopter, and powered by an elastic band system, Tim the Flying Bird can travel over an amazing 40 meters. Simply lock-wind the rubber band system, gently release Tim into the air, and watch as his brightly coloured wings flap and send him soaring into the sky. Once the bird’s wings have exhausted the rubber band induced propulsion, they will lock and send Tim on a gentle glide back to the ground.

No batteries are required for this timeless favourite, only the ability to wind a mechanism! The wings are made of a sturdy plastic and will hold their shape through many a misguided landing. The easy to use lock-wind system makes Tim the Flying Bird a great gift for kids, and the young at heart alike. Enjoy this feathered friend while flying solo, or bring the whole family in on the enjoyment!

Recommended for ages six and over. Not recommended for ages three and under.
