@The NYC Toy fair 2008 I found a fantastic line of “Timberkits” these are wood automatons you build yourself: Dragons, pigs, drummers, piano players – you can also build a motor if you don’t want to use the crank. I think these were one of my favorite things from the entire event.

Here’s a video of “kissing couple”.
