Ugears miniatures

Ugears key fobs

The LondonToy Fair usually sees me leave with an SD card full of photos, a bill for a stupidly expensive sandwich, and very little else. 

Not this year. The kind people on the Ugears stand gave me a freebie - 4 tiny kits to make up. 

Parts for each are pushed out of the laser-cut fret and slotted together with the aid of toothpicks used as axles. Each model is a key fob or Christmas tree bauble. Inside the shape are a couple of gears that can be spun. 

Assembly takes a few minutes, most of which is spent sanding the trimmed down axles nice and flush for a neat finish.
