MPM Hobbies BBB Business Review

Like them or loathe them, centipedes are fascinating things, and this enthralling Educational construction kit is an accurate recreation of a Japanese centipede’s slithering movement. At around 40cm in length and with 9 pairs of legs, this is not only a highly interesting build; it also offers many hours of fun. This product was developed from original research performed by Osaka University in Japan.

  • Length: 400mm, width: 92mm, height: 40mm Weight (including batteries): 243g
  • The finished model consists of a head unit, separate body units, a gearbox, and a battery case.
  • The approximate speed is 1 meter every 15 seconds.
  • The underside of the model is shaped so that the centipede is automatically routed around obstacles it cannot go over.
  • Body sections are molded in clear blue plastic. The number used can be altered.
  • Type 130 motors and gears are shared with Mini 4WD products; therefore, they can be upgraded using Grade-Up parts from the Mini 4WD series.
  • Requires two separately sold AAA batteries.
