We were recently thrilled to receive some Meccano Space Chaos and Turbo Models for the twins from Meccano. The boys loved the sets, although they needed a little help from daddy to put them together. They combine the traditional view of Meccano (metal pieces with holes in them ) with some plastic components and futuristic design.
The space Chaos ships come in two ranges Silver Force set (on the left above and the good guys) and the Dark Pirates (on the right and the bad guys). Both ranges transform into two ships. Also included is a trading card . As is often the case in our house Jarvis chose to be a bad guy and Milo the goody, I can confirm the good versus bad battle was rigorously fought, with lots of bashing and crashing, sound effect and flying around the house ! The ships survived to fight another day !
Children can go online on the professional and easy to use website to read about the quest, download card games, secret codes and videos.
The third set was from the Turbo range a selection of racing cars. One clever feature is part of the storage case is used to form part of the car. Suitable for 7 yrs and over they boys had no trouble putting this one together. Its sturdy and well made and again combines the traditional look of Meccano with uptodate features.
If you are looking for an alternative to expensive chocolate Eggs this Easter, these toys priced at around £12 represent good value for money.
