“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.
