“Frank Hornby: the boy who made $1,000,000 with a toy.”
This sentence perfectly describes 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 toy vehicles today, much like this Desert Adventure Model Kit. This set allows your child to construct not one, but 20 different models for the land and sky using the 263 metal pieces within the set. Your little engineer will build everything - from a desert buggy to a chase helicopter, motorbike and more - while they follow the step-by-step instructions and learn a thing or two about building along the way.
The same Meccano parts can be used again to build absolutely anything. All that's needed is, well, your child's imagination!
