Automata, like this bird in a bamboo cage toy, have their roots in ancient Greece, where early mathematicians and inventors used their knowledge to craft exquisite creations that moved with only the power of wind, water, or a mechanical spring. Today’s versions may be less rarefied but, like this finely crafted Singing Bird toy, lack none of their vintage charm. Add it to your other collectibles and enjoy the light chirping and tiny movements on your desk, mantelpiece, or kitchen table.
