UGEARS creates eye-catching and imaginative self-propelled wooden mechanical model kits that can be assembled without glue.
Our designs are inspired by real-life mechanisms and embody our love of art and ingenuity. We believe that building these beautiful working models should be fun, and we have dedicated our engineering know-how and meticulous product testing and quality control to a single goal: Ensuring that our models provide an engaging and rewarding experience for the whole family.
UGEARS began as a startup established in 2014 in Kiev, Ukraine. In less than two years we have taken fourteen of our visionary designs and brought them to life in the form of model kits made from sustainably sourced wood, delighting people throughout Europe. Our patented plywood joint design adds to our models’ popularity by making them simple and easy to assemble.
In 2015, backers funded our wildly successful Kickstarter campaign at 20 times over our original goal. To us this says that even in our world of video games and virtual reality, people still get excited when they find creative and fulfilling ways to use their hands. Our business fuels this excitement as well as gives individuals and families the opportunity to come together through the joy of hands-on modeling.
The UGEARS models are all based on an idea of mechanical models in which every detail is in line with reality. Some models have their own modern prototypes, while others are reproductions of the original mechanism. The components are ready to use and you just have to take them out of their packaging. It is not necessary to use glue to build our models. We develop and produce high quality 3D mechanical puzzles; These eco-friendly models are made of plywood. They are equipped with all the elements necessary for their assembly. Thanks to a high-precision design and a quality manufactory all elements can easily lead to a completed model. One of the means of assembling, without glue, the different parts of our models is a patented invention. Each model is not just a kit construction, it is also a design that is integrated into the production process. The mode of operation of the complex structure of the pinion arouses interest and pleasure.
