“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.
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 and more today, and both
a.dults and children all over the world get fired up playing with
Meccano Maker Systems.
