This has been one of the most pleasurable things we have bought our daughter. She has always enjoyed construction kits and she is so thrilled that she can now start to make "grown up" models! She is 7 years old! She is able to handle the small nuts and bolts and use the tools within the kit with relative ease. She needs some help when following the instructions, so mum and dad just have to sit down with her to do this.What fun!! We have talked about all sorts of things - batteries and electricity, axles, cogs, friction to name just a few. Meccano reminds us of our youth and the fun we had. Well done!

This was purchased for our 9 year old grandson. He loves it. It is very easy to understand as you have the plans showing. I have also encouraged him to use his imagination with it and build anything he likes, he loves that idea. Meccano kept my siblings and myself entertained for hours, and it still is.

I bought this for my brother for Christmas, mostly because his partner has a 9 year old daughter and I thought they he could play with the kids. The sight of him on boxing day with a furrowed brow, pouring over the instructions, but not letting them beat him will remain with me forever and puts a smile on my face whenever I think about this toy. Even worse for my brother is the fact that he works in the car industry.

I chose this particular set because it has a lot of different models and comes with a motor, so it has pretty much all you need to make something worth making whilst learning a few engineering fundamentals at the same time. The manuals could be a little clearer, but this adds to the fun in my opinion and it should be remembered that this is a toy and not an exercise in poka yoke (fool proofing) perfection - after all what would be the fun in that.

To sum up, meccano has moved on a long way since I was young, it has improved in quality and there is a lot more creativity in the models. A good toy that teaches some engineering.

I bought this toy for a six year old boy. Ok, it is not the ideal toy for such a boy. Nevertheless, I hope that he will find it funny with a little help of mine. He was used to work with other meccanos and I've tought that will be a step further in the use of this toys: an error.

This toy is intended for greater boys for two reasons: the parts are very tiny: it takes very much to assemble the nuts and bolts of the toy. And you have to be very patient for constructing one of the models that comes with the instructions. For instance, I've constructed the helicopter and it took nearly 2 hours to assemble all the pieces.

In a nutshell: good for greaters boys, or for adults who love building models.

Being a cheeky fellow I thought long and hard what to buy my father for his birthday, seeing this was a light bulb moment and the joy on his face as he unwrapped it was amazing.
Instantly 50 years dropped off him and he was a 10 year old all over again with a miniature spanner and a 6 volt motor.
Within the space of an hour of it being unwrapped there was a model helicopter sitting on the side of the sofa.
As I left that evening there was a engrossed father with screwdriver in hand working out if he wanted to breakdown the helicopter to make a crane or a racing car.
Excellent fun for children of ALL ages!

I'm not a kid but I love playing with stuff that helps me concentrate and use my skills in build something. I made the first model and it took me around 2 hours. I think it can be difficult for some 8 years old kids. it needs attention and patient. Consider the kid personalities if you want to buy them this set. anyways I'm having great fun and I suggest everybody to get one of these!

This was a birthday present for my son and initially he ignored it as he dived into star wars lego. He is 9 and finds the Meccano set a bit daunting but is intrigued by the number of models you can make. We have had one session with it which he really enjoyed, but he still needs help with putting it all together. Overall it strikes me as good value and educational, but it remains to be seen how engaging it really is.

I bought this because i have an 11 year old boy with an obvious flair for construction.Remembering the Meccano sets from my childhood,i thought this item might satisfy his desire to build.I wasn't disappointed,it has kept him occupied for hours on end.This is a well made set at a very reasonable price and like all Meccano,can be added to as required.
