“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 this Space Quest Kit! This sets allow you to create not one, not two, but a whopping 15 different space craft from all-metal pieces. Discover a whole world of engineering opportunities as you use the pieces to build a rocket with real moving gantry. Once you’ve helped your little astronaut reach the next galaxy, take the robot apart and build a lunar module, spaceship, satellite and more!
Everything needed to build these intergalactic models is in included in this kit – but don’t let the step-by-step instructions limit your child. Deploy their new-found building skills to use the same Meccano parts to build absolutely anything at all, all that's needed is some rocket-powered ingenuity!
