There’s nothing quite like the joys of childhood. Pretty much everyone has been to the fair with their family, and gone on the big Ferris Wheel. Spinning around, with different cabins at different points on the wheel. As soon as you get to the top, you get to experience that incredible view. See the whole fair and surrounding areas from a very high point in the sky.
Now you can recreate those feelings and remember those memories with this incredible WOODEN.CITY Ferris Wheel mechanical model and puzzle kit.
At 429 parts, this is one of our most intricate and complicated creations to put together – giving you hours and hours of fun. Assemble it together with your kids to teach them how things are put together, and spend some quality time with them. It takes around 8 hours to fully put this model together.
This WOODEN.CITY Ferris Wheel 3D Mechanical Model also features a secret box for coins and a small jewelry box on the bottom – perfect for leaving on your bedroom dresser once it’s complete.
Start the wheel (powered by heavy duty rubber bands), and it’ll operate for about 2 minutes.
The items in the box (9 items) had a rough go of it. FedEx carried the shipment around for two weeks. It took 7 delivery attempts for them to get the package to me. Supposedly because my stop was the end of the line and the deliver hours expired, so it was repeatedly scheduled for "tomorrow".
2. String breaks
3. Main shaft dowel warped
To many more problems to mention and mistakes in instructions
Loved this build...the gears, the string, wax...It is challenging but so rewarding to see it all come together! The pieces are precisely cut, and fit perfectly and I can’t say more about what a fine product this is. Great work!
I ordered the Ferris Wheel from Daniel and Nadia of Wooden City. It arrived quickly and in perfect condition. I loved the the wooden box it comes in rather than a cardboard box like Ugears. (I used the box to make a finished platform base for the model!) I decided to make my Ferris Wheel an art project and spent many hours coloring all the parts with artists color markers. It came out great and every one who's seen it just loves it. However, I ran into a problem with the construction of the rubber band motor and I couldn't get my model to turn when I wound it up. After talking to both Nadia and Daniel about the problem, they felt I might have a defective model and they graciously sent me another brand new one at no charge. Daniel asked for me to send my model back to them so they could inspect it for problems. They paid for shipping both ways. First, I want to thank both Nadia and Daniel for all their help and their incredible customer service. Not only are they some of the nicest people around, but they really care about taking care of their customers so they have a rewarding and fun experience. I can't speak highly enough about their commitment to honesty, value, and real caring...something you rarely see anymore. PLEASE---do yourself a favor---order some models from Wooden City and give yourself some challenging FUN. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
I bought the kit for my daughter, an experienced wooden kit builder. I choose the kit because it looked like a real challenge to put together. It was a challenge and she really enjoyed putting it together. She should be in contact with you for a replacement string that she broke. Please consider developing additional, even more challenging kits.
Best wishes from a fan of yours
