“Frank Hornby: the boy who made $1,000,000 with a toy.”
These are the first words in what could be called The Meccano Story.
In 1898, Frank Hornby invented a toy for his two sons using nuts, bolts and other random parts, and the boys’ imaginations were awakened. Meccano still specialises in creating realistic vehicles today, and both adults and children all over the world get fired up playing with Meccano Maker Systems.
Build, re-build and create, with the Construction Crew Kit! This sets allow you to create not one, not two, but five different construction vehicles from all-metal pieces. Kids can discover a whole world of engineering opportunities as they build a bulldozer with real working front scoop and wheels, then take it apart to build a dump truck, cherry picker, front loader or steam roller!
Everything needed to build these construction vehicles is in included in this kit – but don’t let the step-by-step instructions limit your child from taking their new-found building skills to new heights. The same Meccano parts can be used again to build absolutely anything at all, all that's needed is well, your child's imagination!

- Recommended for children aged 8 and over.
- Made in France.
- Kit contains over 95 all-metal pieces, tools and instructions.
