Please note: This product contains no electronic part with the straws and straw struts only
Strawbees is a construction kit based on one simple unit that lets you connect straws to each other. You stick a Strawbee into the ends of a standard quarter inch (6mm) straw to make struts and then connect them with another Strawbee. From building mathematical shapes like the platonic solids to mechanical birds, claws, or even huge animated snakes.With the Strawbees you can always modify things as you go, add straws, cut straws, or add new connections to get a stronger, more flexible or bigger construction.
It's a wonderful system for trial and error construction and allows you to do a lot of things impossible with other systems.
The Crazy Scientist kit contains 141 pieces of connectors in 2 random colors and sample straws .
Perfect for testing Strawbees and to build a bridge, your own umbrella or just a random creature. We promise fun and a “I want more pieces”-feeling.
