I bought this for my son for his 5th birthday. All he asked for was an erector set so we went ahead and got him this even though it is for ages 8+. He was so excited that he got it because of all the different things he could build especially the motorcycle. I know for the first several times my husband and I will have to help him but he really likes working with his hands. I like the Erector brand much better than some of the off brand for several reasons the screws/bolts are much easier to get a hold of and they use an allen wrench which is also easier to use and less likely to strip out unlike to phillips screws/driver. The tools that they come with help a whole lot but the smaller screws and lock nuts can be tedious to get together. The instructions are pretty well explanitory. They do come with 10 models they can build but with some imagination and creativity they can create their own masterpiece.

It was a harder than a 8 year old. He has done a lot of different ones and needed help from adult. It was hard watching him get so frustrated. And then to have to ask an adult for help after 4 hours of frustration.

Comments about Meccano 1010097 1010097 Meccano-Erector - Multimodel - 10 Model Set:
A fun item that encourages thinking. I gave it to my nephew for his 11th bithday and he loved it. It is a heavy duty toy that can withstand the roughness of boys.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Grandparent
6 year old loved the idea of making a motorcycle but Papa and Dad did most of the actual construction. He liked that he could try to make several different things.
Great 1 on 1 time activity!

I bought this for my son's 9th birthday. We've enjoyed assembling the Erector 10 set together! It does take both people working together initially. My son used his small fingers to reach the tiny spaces to start the bolts, while I helped tighten them. I know that he'll take the ball and run with it once he's had more time to assemble the various models!

Excellent product. Bought as a birthday gift for my 7-yr old nephew, who has every Lego (ok, he has a ton of them) than he should. He loves this kit because it challenges him to be creative, and doesn't involve batteries or a computer. Will definitely purchase more of this type of kit in the future.
Perfect for the stage after legos.

My 8-year old got excited about using real nuts and bolts. He did not need help. The picture instructions made it easy for him to follow, but not so easy that he finished quickly. He was able to work on his own in the morning, quietly and able to leave and come back to where he left off to complete the design. He was very proud that he could make it himself. It was perfect for that age where he has worked with Legos and Kinex, but not quite ready for real construction work. All in all a great buy.
great toy for fun and learning

About Me Education Oriented
This is a toy for my 12 year old who has fine motor problems. He needs more help putting this together than some kids would but it is great to build fine motor skills. This is a great change from lego or other building toys (we love). After using the directions to build the models my son likes to create his own with the kit. It can be a little difficult to put together and a child may need help.

This is easy to read instructions. There are a lot of options which is great for my kids to choose from
By Wku dadI
My son loves this set. It is not like Legos, when finished with one design you can tear down and build more. Teaches great hand eye coordination and the use of tools. Would recommend to anyone.
