  • Description

    An ornithopter is a flying machine that uses a flapping wing motion to fly, just like a real bird—it’s also a super fun word to say! Designed by forward-thinking Haptic Lab, this simple mechanical toy is powered by a rubber band, and to make it fly, kids simply wind up the bird and gently release it, like a paper airplane. Great for outdoor adventures, the Flying Martha Ornithopter gets kids moving, encourages problem solving, and can lead to storytelling and lots of imaginative play. When not in use, the Flying Martha is a charming companion displayed in your home.
