Kids are fascinated with the way things work. This wooden model that has been handcrafted from durable hardwood with smooth-moving parts allows children to explore the concepts of force, speed, motion, direction, and energy.

When a cord goes over a pulley, the force it applies changes direction. In this device, an axle is attached for winding up the cord and the cord goes over a pulley, changing the direction of this force. You can easily see the application of this principle on cranes and other machines.
