With this item you can learn some basics about construction. All you need to do is start with instructions for the items listed. Then the fun really begins as you can see what other items that you can find to make.

The only downside that I can see is that you really need to pay attention to the small parts and make sure that you put everything in its place. Oh and then you don't want to have real young children play with it. Besides the obvious small parts,the child will end up making a mess and loss the parts. So this has to be used by a child who is 8 or older.

I'm not one to write reviews on products I buy I will say this is one of the worst items we've every bought. My boys who are 10 each got one and were so excited to put them together. When we opened them we were very disappointed but we still thought we'd try it anyways. There were a million tiny little washers and bolts they were so hard to put on and screw in the directions were impossible to read and when we were finished they barely stayed together. Over all we were very disappointed the overall product was terrible. I would not recommended this product to anyone.

fun, but not easy...

By Angie from Pa

Comments about Meccano 1010097 1010097 Erector 15 Model Set:

It is by no means an easy childs product. 8 might be a little young. My son received this as a gift and he is 12. It took us about 4 -5 hours including brakes and a few parts were accidently switched (ex. we used the 7 hole brackets where 6 hole were to be used and after other parts were installed it made it a little difficult to take the incorrect ones off and put the correct ones on) we needed the 7 hole and they had to be switched. The instruction schumatic is about as detailed as you could expect, and we had fun building it. We built a helicopter and the propeller spins mechanically with pulleys that we assembled. Overall we had fun building it and I would recomend it... If I had to say anything negative, maybe if more brackets and parts were included, but it does come with quite a bit...

    The label indicated - meant for 8 and above. Though supervised the 6 year old birthday recipient used it with ease. He has leggo experience. required no help.

    Leaves room for creativity at a reasonable cost.

      I bought this set for my 7-year old son, who is a lego fan and can build lego models with 900+ pieces for 8+ year olds by himself. He was excited at first, but lost interest in the set after 30 minutes or so, as the parts are too challenging for him to assemble by himself. Hopefully he will become interested in it when he turns 8.

          This was a gift to our grandson for christmas. He happens to be really difficult to buy for as he is mostly into video games. It is refreshing to be able to introduce him to activities that encourage him to get off the videos and use his mind constructively.
