Critter - Wind-up Toys

Critter – Wind-up Toys   Design by Chico Bicalho Here are some tips to enjoy your wired four-legged friend and get the most fun out of its fidgety existence. Critter is like an old Jeep with the mind of a mosquito; it needs occasional maintenance, tweaking and sometimes a drop of oil. Don’t worry; it’s all part of the fun. To wind up Critter, hold it in one hand, keeping the counterweight from spinning, while turning the key with the other hand. Critter works best when all four booties touch the ground approximately 4″ (10 cm) left to right, and 4 1/2″ (11.5 cm) front to rear. The legs may be adjusted by gently bending the wire near the body. If it falls over too often, bend the legs slightly apart until Critter becomes steadier. If it’s not active enough, adjust the legs closer together. Every once in a while, a bit of spray lubricant will keep the engine revving like crazy. Critter’s favorite performing surfaces are marble tables or thin carpets; essentially any level surface will do. What it really loves is to tap dance on a pool table with other Critters. Two or more Critters together make a Critter-jitter party.  Colors of feet and wind-up key may vary.
