Skidum - Wind-up Toys

Skidum – Wind-up Toys Skidum is the reincarnation of a certain ‘found object from space’, transformed into a multi legged critter. Despite the evolution, the revolution of the gearbox remains the same; spinning, tumbling, skidding, and pirouetting itself dizzy, in performances that never seem to repeat the same movement. To set Skidum in motion, crank the mid size legs clockwise all the way, and set it down on a table, or on the floor with no carpet. Since its plastic parts glow-in-the-dark, Skidum looks very cool in total darkness as well.Booty and key colors are assorted, colors picked on availablity.  

Trying to see how pieces fit and re-assessing where they might go when they don’t fit is a good exercise in checking and re-evaluating choices. Each piece can only go in to one place so there is none of the compromising and trading-off that takes place in so many other aspects of modern life. This forces the player to constantly re-evaluate their decisions, and teaches patience with the process as it is an integral part of the game.
