PRODUCT: Meccano Set 3 Motorized Construction Box ( Motorized

DESCRIPTION: A carry box containing approximately 100 parts to make 10 motorised models. Includes a real motor, tools and instructions. Suitable for children aged 4 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: For the price of just one of these motorised kits, your child will be able to build not one, but ten motorised Meccano vehicles. Models include, among others, a carousel, helicopter, racing car and robot, each of which measures roughly 30cm.

The construction of each of the models is clearly illustrated with a detailed step-by-step guide, which is incredibly easy for your child to follow. Each of the models is powered by the motor, which itself is operated from a battery pack (provided). This requires four AA batteries (not included).

The models are built using the tools included (a screwdriver and wrench) which help hold and tighten the nuts and bolts. All of the parts are nice and chunky to allow little fingers to hold and access.

There are a large number of parts to the kit, all plastic or rubber, and all of which come in a handy locking tool box with carry handle. The box even includes dividers for your child to organise their tools and components.

The Meccano Motorised Construction Box is a product guaranteed to keep any inquisitive mind occupied for hours, and is not only fun but a great source of learning without your child even knowing!

Other box sets in the series include Set 1 Easy and Set 2 Mechanical.

BAD POINTS: Batteries need to be purchased separately. The locking mechanism on the handle of the toolbox is a simple plastic flap which may break with repeated use.

PRICE: Approx. £24.99
