Remote Control Machines — Animals (Thames and Kosmos) is an engineering kit. This kit contains 94 pieces and an instruction manual. You can build eight animal models that move by remote control. The animal models you can build are an orangutan, crab, penguin, pterosaur, rabbit, elephant, scorpion and a Tyrannosaurus rex. The machines that you build mimic real animal movement.

I think that the Remote Control Machines building kit is a cool and fun toy. The models were exciting and challenging to make. The toy model became lifelike when you put the plastic skin on the toy. Parental assistance is needed to screw and unscrew the battery compartment due to the tiny-sized screw.
