Leonardo likes to play. Even as an old man, he constructed a magnificent lion for his patron, the King of France. The lion was a play on Leonardo's name. Then as the King admired it, the lion moved. It was the first wind-up toy. Then the Lion opened to reveal lillies: the royal flower. The first Transformer. Construct a simple Rollbot with many different ways to move. Make yours a lion, or a tiger, or a bear. Oh my, so many choices.
