|Curly hair and hairy eyelashes.|
Here are some pictures of a simple rotational lever actuated automata, or simply, a little moving dog made from paper. This was a paper model my year 8 students would make as part of their lessons looking at automata and before moving on to making wooden models in year 9.The model also requires a straw with cocktail sticks added. This is used to move the head and tail of the dog. I will and supply these.
The dog can be made to nod it's head, wag it's tail, look like it is walking, even running.
Here is a link to see one working.
Here is the net sheet which is A3 in size, cost £10 including postage.
