Grow Chicken Egg
Great choc-free Easter gift! Submerge this colourful egg in water and watch as your chick emerges from the shell, and starts to grow...

This woody woodpecker is a simple yet fascinating toy. Just slide the cute bird with flash of brightly-coloured hair to the top of the pole and watch him peck his way down to the bottom. No batteries or electrical energy required. A great-value, classic timber toy that's fun to watch, and demonstrates both basic and complex science principles.

Age: 5 +

What you get

Timber Woody Woodepecker toy in a simple plastic bag. Pole measure 38cm high, and woodpecker bird measures 4.5cm high. The woodpecker's hair and base colour varies - there's blue, pink, yellow, and green - a random colour unless specified in the order comments.

How does it work

The lil' woodpecker is attached to a wooden sleeve via a small spring. The metal pole is threaded through the sleeve, and the hole in the sleeve is slightly larger than the diameter of the pole. This allows a kind of pitching motion interrupted by impacts with friction. Gravity inevitably pulls the bird to the bottom, and the movement of the spring is partly responsible for the repeated back-and-forth hammering motion.
