Sand-powered acrobat automaton

Sand-powered acrobat automaton
'ALFRED THE AMAZING' is a sand-powered acrobatic automaton currently available on eBay.

From the eBay description:
When the box is rotated and set down, the sand turns a wheel (axle) and the trapeze guy does his acrobatic wonders, and extremely dangerous feats of daring and thrill, and he doesn't use a net.

Here the eBay listing Alfred the Amazing sand-powered automaton

I am looking for just such a fellow.
Do you know who made Alfred the Amazing?
Or someone who makes that sort of thing?

I know a little about them and their design and operation as there was a distant relative who invented them. But first I would like to acquire one!
