Looked great! As a family we like creative games and toys and this product looked very fun to make, we even squabbled over who was going to play first. I think it is really well made for the price. Much to complicated for the recommended age to make the model on the box but it was easy enough for my 7 and 9 year old to use just playing and making things up. All three of my children loved playing with the assembled toys once they were made. Great toy for budding builders to use their imagination!

Well packaged, sealed box and sealed plastic bags to ensure no parts are lost. Packaging also includes a list of all items included so you can ensure than nothing is missing.  The item is made from a good durable plastic, however some parts fit together better than others, the wheels on the bike fall off quite easily. I was quite excited when I saw the age and that there were two items included as I thought what a good activity for my sons, they are 5 and 6, my 5year old was unable to follow the instructions for building the meccano or actually put it together by himself.  My six year old lost interest immediately as he found it to difficult to put together. The object of the meccano was to put the pieces together with a screwdriver following the instructions, they knew how to use the screwdriver but found it difficult to put together. Neither of them managed to make the items, even I couldn’t make one of them I had to get my husband to complete the item as the longest strip of meccano which is flexible was extremely difficult to hold in place. Now its built they have no problems playing with it but it’s not something that held there interest for a prolonged period. 5yr old said its great and he really enjoys plying with it but 6yr old said it’s boring. Very reasonable price tag at 3.99 ideal pocket money toy or small treat as reward also comes in spending time with parents building the toy; I would also purchase as a pass the parcel kind of toy or stocking filler! Although the item is difficult to build and I don’t feel a child of 5 can build the item alone the fact that my children and I had one on one time to build the item together is always a bonus. Well packaged, difficult to build with difficult instructions to follow, not suitable for a child to build alone of 5yrs, but enjoyed the one to one time spent with my child building it. Cheap and cheerful. Nadia Springthorpe – Ethan & Jacob Ages 6 & 5 Years

I thought the product looked nice and eye-catching at first but I then found it to be disappointing. I think the quality was poor, the screws and bolts did not seem to fit together properly. Summer is six and she really struggled with putting the parts together. So I think the age should be a lot higher than five. She loved the screwdriver provided and used picture on packet to follow. The wheels keep coming off the motorbike, so she got fed up of playing with it. Nice and eye catching but hard to assemble, even for daddy. Helen Fellows – Summer 6 Years

Great toy for budding builders to use their imagination!
