Mud Puppy - Magnetic Action Figures Robot

It's good to see innovation taking place on so many levels.  We had 'colorforms' when I was a child.  I'd sit for hours arranging little plastic pieces into place.  Fast forward into time and meet these mechanical men, printed in the fine art technique, that Mudpuppy is noted for.  Made from glossy plastics with a magnetic backing and held in a metal tin, your child can let his imagination cyber through. 

Assemble your robots in any manner you please.  There are so many pieces to transform with. Four different scenes are held on two separate cards.  A little notch is built-in to help turn it over.  

My son loves these and I tend to find them around the home -- wherever there is metal.  I found this little guy on the refrigerator.  These are easy to tote for travel. The tin measures about 6-1/4" x 8-3/4".
