Meccano Construction Starter Case

The Meccano Construction Starter Case is an excellent introduction to Meccano and superb for imaginative construction play.

Initial Thoughts: Meccano is a real blast from the past and the Meccano Construction Starter Case is a storage bucket containing 60 parts to build 5 models.  My husband couldn’t wait to get stuck in with the boys and see what they could make.

We liked: Meccano is undergoing a resurgence and it is no longer made of metal, but of flexible plastic so is safe to use with younger children and it is also easy for them to connect themselves.  With the Meccano Construction Starter Case you can make 5 models, but to be honest the boys really enjoyed improvising.

We weren’t keen: There really isnt a lot not to like.  The set even comes with its own case to store the Meccano.

Overall: The Meccano Construction Starter Case is an excellent introduction to Meccano and superb for imaginative construction play.  This was a real hit in The Mad House and has been played with again and again.  The fact that the colours are red and yellow also makes for great unisex play
