Completing my Bucket List

Wooden Model Kits from UGEARS

I’ve said many times on here before how much I love puzzles, but standard jigsaws just aren’t as challenging as I’d like anymore.

I recently came across UGEARS.

UGEARS creates eye-catching and imaginative self-propelled wooden mechanical model kits that can be assembled without glue. 

There are many models to choose from but I decided to go for the model safe and the model theatre.


Considering safe-cracking as a profession? This might be just where you should start. Build your own safe with a personal lock combination, store your most precious items in the safe (jewelry or candy, your choice), and then promptly forget your combination! Follow the handy steps in the instructions to master the mix of slow knob twists and careful listening to tumbler movements that will open the lock. Will you retrieve your items, or will you have to hire a locksmith? Try it and see.

The Theatre


An intricate mechanism with a touch of drama. Spin the wheel to bring your characters on stage. Can the Prince slay the Dragon? Will the King storm the Castle? Does the Princess defeat the Witch? Perhaps the Jester will find the Treasure! Every spin changes the story and makes you both the playwright and the audience. What story will you create?

UGears is:

    • HIGH QUALITY – unlike others construction kits on the market that can be flimsy and cheap looking, our models are produced in Europe from high quality wooden materials. They are sturdy and long-lasting.


    • MECHANICAL MOTION – many construction kits  when assembled are just static models. Our models produce motion, are self-propelled and some of them can go up to 5 meters!


    • NO GLUE ASSEMBLY –  our models don’t need glue or special tools to connect parts. So you are are not exposed to harsh chemicals during assembly and have everything you need to enjoy construction of the models in the box.


    • UNIQUE DESIGN – Our models are not just a construction kit, but a certain idea embedded in each design. Some of them have real life prototypes, some are genius inventions of our engineers. The beautiful structure of gears is not only creating motion, but also looks beautiful as home decoration. Also, unlike other construction kits and 3D puzzles, our models are educational both during assembly and as the end result.


    • MADE OF WOOD MATERIALS – we care about environment and what will happen to our models after many many years of service. As they are made of wood materials they are not only good for you, but also for our planet!

I’ll be building these when I get some time off work over the Christmas holidays and will share them with you once I’ve built them.
Do these look like something you’d enjoy building?
