Shining Woods / Educational wooden toys for mechanical principles

Shining Woods

Our inspiration comes from the simple wooden structure, such as Gear, lever and drive belt. It is simple and easy to understand, and incorporates modern mechanical structure knowledge. According to the principle of magnetism, when a gear rotates and the mechanical energy is converted into electricity, the base of this gear will glow. This is a feedback of power transmission, describing a light path of force, so that children will try to light up more bases enthusiastically. It promotes children to understand mechanical principles.
