Whispering to each other through tin can telephones is soooo last decade. Who’s got time for baling twine when you can turn to mechanics and motors! By following included instructions you’ll learn exactly how to assemble and power the driving motor, a fantastic way to learn key principles behind motor mechanics!


Once you’ve done the hard part, string up your tin can gondola and watch it scoot backwards and forwards across your room. Why not use it to deliver written messages? 

It’s no wonder that the Tin Can Cable Car won the best new toy award in the hobby section at the 2014 British Toyfair. It also claimed top spot as the Australian Toy Association’s educational product of the year that same year. It’s a tin-rific all-rounder, great for learning, playing and imagining!

The kit includes everything to assemble your tin can cable car except for 2 x AAA batteries, a Phillips head screw driver and empty drinks can.
