In this instructable you will learn how to make a fun zip line adventure for your stuffed animals!

Step 1: Supplies

Gather the following supplies

* Maker Studio Gear Set

* Rope

* Tape

* Stuffed Animal

Step 2: Assemble Zip Line Apparatus

In the Maker Studio Gear Set Box Use the Instruction Booklet to assemble the zip line apparatus.

Using the Cable car instructions on page 16 only build steps 5 and 6 (shown above in the third picture)

Step 3: Zip Line Apparatus

Your zip line apparatus should now look like this.

Step 4: String Your Zip Line

Use the rope to string your zip line.

It is important that one end or your zip line is higher than the other end, so that gravity can do its job, aiding in the zip line experience.

It is also important that the rope be tied tight so there is no slack in the rope between the two ends.

Step 5: Attach Zip Line Apparatus to the Rope

Put the zip line apparatus on the rope, ensure that the rope rides on the small wheel between the two big wheels.

Step 6: Add the Handle

Once the apparatus is on the zip line put the handle through and secure it with the provided black stoppers. This allows your stuffed animal to have something to hang from.

Step 7: Attach Your Stuffed Animal

Using the tape gently tape the stuffed animal's paws, wings, hands (whatever they may have) to each side of the zip line apparatus handle.

Step 8: Watch Your Animal Sour!

Take the zip line apparatus to the top of the rope (the high end) and let go, your animal should have the ride of its life down to the bottom!
