About Ugears

UGEARS is a 2014 Ukrainian startup with a growing worldwide reputation for producing unique, self-propelled, wooden mechanical DIY models, puzzle boxes and educational toys. UGEARS models have become a fun and educational hobby for people in 85 countries across 5 continents.

Our mission is to delight modelers of all ages, bringing families and friends together as they build and share these beautiful mechanical marvels. We have grown from a small start-up into a dedicated team with more than 250 inspired professionals: engineers, designers and craftsmen who see music in wood and create poetry in motion! We invest our creativity and love of craft into each model.

about UGEARS

Unlike models with simple static displays, each UGEARS model is capable of a unique range of self-powered movement, using rubber band motors and fascinating systems of gears, flywheels, weights and gravity. There are no batteries or cords—these machines work all on their own!

Every UGEARS model embodies simple engineering principles that make assembly and play an exciting, educational game, bringing you hours of pleasure and fun. With over 90 models to choose from you are sure to find the perfect gift for yourself or the people you love. The product line includes educational STEM lab kits (to encourage and develop students' mechanical competence), fidget devices, and delightful toys and crafts for children, with simple designs for easy assembly.

Over the span of four years, from 2015 to 2018, Ugears engaged in six crowdfunding campaigns on Kickstarter, showcasing innovative 3D puzzles: wooden mechanical models, musical instruments, automatons, and unique tabletop game devices. These campaigns have collectively raised an astounding total of over USD 1.3 million (significantly exceeding the expected amount). This phenomenal result demonstrates a high level of interest and trust among current and potential customers all over the world. You can find our Kickstarter projects here.

Made of art-quality plywood, each model assembles easily without the need for glue or special tools. UGEARS model kits arrive at your door with everything you need for assembly right in the box. All steps of the assembly are described in color diagrams and detailed, step-by-step instructions in 11 languages (English, German, French, Polish, Spanish, Ukrainian, Italian, Japanese, Chinese and Korean). Customer service is available 24/7, with spare parts provided and shipped free of charge.
