Designer’s Notes –

Clockwork animals are luxury items, hard to maintain & made from expensive materials, so their store needed to be truly opulent.  There’s a lot I’m proud of in this set, but the clock took the longest to figure out.  I was obsessed with getting the hands to spin at the proper ratios.  In the end, it was simpler to spin the faces instead.  Attach a motor to the drive-shaft & it could even be used as a real clock!  So crank those gears by clicking the support button & together we’ll get the Clockwork Menagerie ready to run!

Thanks,
