Cosmojetz is the last, and final item from the series of five products using the gearbox with a single spinning off-center weight. The idea here is to have an absolutely out of control creature, short circuited, disoriented, but, having a lot of fun in the process. Since the person who created Cosmojetz has severe ADD, perhaps we're dealing with a self-portrait situation here. Cosmojetz is a little hard to wind-up for mechanical/physiological reasons, but it is worth the effort once you see it catapulting itself weightlessly, and fearlessly across your table.
For some reason of which we're not aware, Awika seems to always be in a big hurry.
Awika was born when Bonga and Sparklz got together. She has the characteristics of both parents; the tenacious pace of Bonga, and she "does the Sparklz" as well. Awika also has glowing parts, like her uncle Svrocket.
Awika is a very good climber; test her with different small objects on your desk to challenge her up and down obstacles. You can also let her climb over your hand, an open book, or, whatever else is on your desk.
MxyKikker, celebrating 15 years of Kikkerland's foundation, and 15 years since the first Critter was sold at MXYPLYZYK in New York, is an inspiration from our climbing windups, Bonga and Awika, but with long legs, and more radical ascending capabilities. The key system is different as well, incorporated into the center, right set of legs, marked on the hub by a coil icon, and an arrow. It works by rotating those legs backwards, with one finger until the spring is fully wound. MxyKikker does some fancy climbing, and it walks upside-down if needed.
Le Pinch was one of the most complex windups to develop. Getting the articulated halves of Le Pinch to relate to one another was intense, but in time, we managed to coordinate Le Pinch's front and rear ends quite nicely. Le Pinch loves to climb over small obstacles, just like its cousins Bonga, and Awika!
Samu has sixteen legs to enable it to perform a type of athletics previously unthinkable to any critter we've known. Samu puffs over obstacles valiantly, climbing through small obstacles with great enthusiasm, but with tenderness at the same time for Samu is incredibly sweet, and mild-mannered.
