History Ugears

UGEARS creates eye-catching and imaginative self-propelled wooden mechanical model kits that can be assembled without glue. 

Our designs are inspired by real-life mechanisms and embody our love of art and ingenuity. We believe that building these beautiful working models should be fun, and we have dedicated our engineering know-how and meticulous product testing and quality control to a single goal: Ensuring that our models provide an engaging and rewarding experience for the whole family. 

UGEARS began as a startup established in 2014 in Kiev, Ukraine. In less than two years we have taken fourteen of our visionary designs and brought them to life in the form of model kits made from sustainably sourced wood, delighting people throughout Europe. Our patented plywood joint design adds to our models’ popularity by making them simple and easy to assemble. 

In 2015, backers funded our wildly successful Kickstarter campaign at 20 times over our original goal. To us this says that even in our world of video games and virtual reality, people still get excited when they find creative and fulfilling ways to use their hands. Our business fuels this excitement as well as gives individuals and families the opportunity to come together through the joy of hands-on modeling.

Please take a moment to review our catalogue and website. Then join us in bringing our old-school, but yet-so-cool world of mechanical modeling to builders everywhere!

Yours Truly,
The UGEARS Team
