The beloved kangaroo from Australia

Tamiya presents the robot replica of the beloved kangaroo from Australia. This amazing kangaroo-robot jumps by moving its rear legs simultaneously to go forward. When walking slowly, it also uses its front legs (just like they do down under) and when running quickly, it uses its tail for balance. Legs and body on which the gearbox is mounted employ transparent-colored parts, giving the kangaroo a funky look. Reverse switch is also transparent, giving you a peak at the kangaroo's internal mechanisms.

All you need included

Assembly is very simple with use of screws and snap-lock parts. Cable ends are rubber capped with cut areas pre-marked for easy wiring.  For Ages 10 and up.

When using high-speed gearbox, the kangaroo walks standing on its tail and rear legs.

A gearbox transforms the motor movement to make the kangaroo's rear legs move. You can choose between two different gears for gearbox assembly. When using the low speed gearbox, rods are attached to the lower holes of front legs and kangaroo walks standing on its tail.

Low-speed gearbox makes the kangaroo walk using its front and rear legs

When using the low speed gearbox, rods are attached to the upper holes of front legs. Changing rod position using different holes in the crank plate gives you 4 different speed possibilities within slow speed mode. When walking slowly, it impressively imitates a real kangaroo's movement.

Altering tail position makes kangaroo change direction

Changing the position of the tail allows the kangaroo to keep balance during high-speed running and enables it to change direction. Putting the tail straight will make the kangaroo go straight but setting it to the right/left will make the kangaroo turn to the right/left.

Playing with the Kangaroo

Avoid running over slopes, bumpy roads or longhaired carpet. Run on flat, smooth surfaces. Watching its humorous movement will provide you with loads of fun.
