Automata Collection – Contraband Cat It’s not true that all cats are afraid of water. This seafaring kitty was formerly a pirates’s pet. An expert oarsman who knows every nook and cranny along the coast, he now makes a fine living by smuggling stolen treasure. Paper automata are not just toys. They are works of art and demonstrations of science. A lot of thought goes into the design of every model. Pull the levers, turn the crank and watch with delight as the model springs into life.They are constructed from paper rather than plastic. Paper is lightweight, strong, easy to work with and environmentally friendly. The models require no tools for assembly. They also teach the mechanical principles of levers and gears.
