The 644 Twister is named for the 6″ x 4″ x 4″ box on which it is based. You can also use a 7″ x 5″ x 5″ box as a starting point.
Turn the handle on the twister mechanism and the vertical shaft twists back and forth and up and down! Add your own character and make it dance! I’ll be posting how-to instructions for the bird and octopus shown below shortly as well as a sketch sheet of other ideas for you to try at home.
