Our models are the original all-occasional gift, fun and smart hobby for kids and grown-ups of all ages. We’ve employed engineering know-how and production fine-tuning to ensure the assembly of our models is an engaging and rewarding experience for the whole family. We are very serious about the quality of our kits. Apart from meticulous product testing and quality control, we source plywood from responsible and sustainable sources. In addition, while looking for a way to make the assembly experience smooth and enjoyable for our customers, we invented and patented our very own plywood joint design.

“Our mission is to give an unforgettable time of working together on things that are popular for all ages. We want to connect the hearts of parents and kids. And as a result – get a revived mechanical marvel.”

  •  the individual elements of the puzzle are cut and ready to be assembled;
  • The patterns move -“mechanical” ;
  • What distinguishes UGEARS from other puzzles for self-assembly is that the heart of the mechanisms consists of different types of gears, bars, a pendulum. Taken together they make a unique moving hand-winding model. The mechanism on the move looks like a Swiss watch looking through the watchman’s magnifying glass.

History of Timber Structures :

With the production of mechanical puzzles, two Ukrainians decide to recall the memories of mechanics in real life. Assembling the puzzle allows you to feel every element to observe the work of energy that does not come from an electrical cable. Joining the details carries forgotten knowledge and skills.

One of UGEARS’ creators says in an interview that “if the models are fully assembled, the client will be deprived of the feeling of creation. In the assembly process there is an important “birth” moment when the model shows a spark for life. This is extremely exciting. ”

Designing a new model takes from two to six months, and in a “crude” look.  It may be ready for a shorter time, but the many improvements are far more time consuming. The laser outline of the plywood is made with an accuracy of +/- 0.1 mm due to the use of natural material. The first thing when the box is opened is to feel the smell of wood. Quality control is performed at each stage of production. UGEARS puzzles can be used for years, and then the structures are recycled without affecting the environment.

To date, About Ugears models are more than 30, including steam locomotive, tractor, timer, combine, trailer, tram, mechanical theater, mechanical box, engine, safe and more & continuing work on new designs for future models.

Each model carries a certain message and idea, the “tram” is the most romantic mechanism, while the “tractor” carries its magic and attraction in motion. UGEARS’ models are art, they show us the beauty of mechanics (a sense of real movement) and make it more comprehensible.

The kit has everything you need to assemble the puzzle:

  • A set of high quality plywood boards that are laser-engraved;
  • Instructions with a detailed step-by-step assembly, as well as additional details;
  • Including toothpicks used as pins and pins, and bands that help to store energy, which in turn allows the models to move. Toothpicks do a great job and are little surprising,ey .
