About Us


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 Kyiv, 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 modelling.
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,



NATURAL. Natural wood materials. UGEARS models are produced in Europe from high quality wooden materials. They are sturdy and long-lasting.  

NO GLUE CONNECTION. Assembling without glue and chemicals.  UGEARS models don’t need glue or special tools to connect the parts, which makes watching it work and move even more exciting. You can assemble them at home on the table. All you need is your own hands, patience, and assembly instructions.

SELF-ASSEMBLY. Parts are already cut and ready to assemble. Models are equipped with everything needed for assembly. The quality of the parts is very high – a laser method is used for cutting items from a plywood board. Firstly, you put the smaller parts together to form the large blocks, which will altogether complete the whole model.

MECHANICAL. UGEARS models produce motion and are self-propelled. Instead of a simple static display, each model is capable of a unique and fascinating range of self-powered movements, all without batteries and, some of them, can go up to 5 meters!

UNIQUE DESIGN. Each UGEARS model is not just a construction kit, but a piece of art and a great idea of perfect mechanism embedded in each design. Putting them together, you bring the idea to life. The beautiful structure of gears is not only creating motion but also looks beautiful as a home decoration.

EDUCATIONAL. Ugears models are perfect for family projects through hands-on STEM learning.

Each UGEARS model brings a rewarding feeling of assembling with your own hands, inviting you and your loved ones into the awesome and cool world of mechanics.  Assembling models is a fun and trending hobby for grown-ups and kids alike. It’s great to understand mechanical engineering and mathematical concepts. Dedicated to teaching the craft of woodworking, with a hefty dose of humour and realism, UGEARS puzzling unites parents and kids, fathers and sons. It’s unforgettable time which you share with your loved ones making real things together.
