If you want a toy that will keep your child (maybe even the Adult who is a big kid at heart) busy challenging their building capabilities, the Meccano Meccasaur is a definite item to add to your gift giving list. When I told my 12 year old son that the T-Rex would be arriving soon, he was pretty excited. Of course I am not sure who was more excited to rip the box open, him or me. When you first open the box, the amount of parts is a little intimidating at first. They soon consumed the kitchen floor as we separated them in individual piles. To make this an easier build, I would recommend separating the bolts and screws by size, and keeping a ruler near by so that you are sure that the part you are using is the correct millimeter size. Putting together the dinosaur I must say is challenging and at times requires two people as trying to tighten screws in hard to reach areas proves difficult for one individual. The Meccasaur took several days for my son to build. It is not a typical lego toy where it is built in a few hours, and with the slightest bump it falls apart. Once you get Meccasaur together, the screws, nuts, and bolts actually make the toy very sturdy and well made. He is definitely an impressive 3 feet in length, just as advertised. It is difficult to vision the size until you actually have the dinosaur together. Even though the Meccano Meccasaur takes a while to put together, I would rather watch my son test his building skills then be glued to his iPad, TV, or xBox. It was a nice change of pace. We were actually entertained for hours, programming the dinosaur to complete motions that we desired. We must of asked him 30 or more questions just to see his response and to give us a laugh. Of course some of them were ridiculous questions, but it was all in fun. There is nothing funnier though then placing the T-Rex in attack mode to scare the living day lights out of the cat as he walked in the room. It was definitely a Kodak moment where I wished I had my camera ready. The more we played with him, the more personality he had. My son was able to master getting Meccasaur to coo when we pet him. For the size of the toy, we were also happy to see it only needed 4 batteries, as so many other toys require batteries for the unit, batteries for remotes, etc. All in all, for the amount of fun we had in testing out the dinosaur, it more then made up for the length of time to build him.

I bought this with the intention of daddy and son time, however, my frustration and the lack of immediate success of this build lead my son to loosing interest and dad finishing the project...myself. Please allow for a FULL weekend or holiday to complete. Directions need revision and the special areas of interest that they should show...fall very short in detail. I actually found myself looking at the box for guidance. Handy tip i used was basic scotch tape to hold the very small nuts in place. The tool they include does not hold the nuts on the tool when trying to maneuver between the very tight fitting pieces. Very pleased with the end result. Pay close attention to orientation (right side vs. left side, etc.) and you be rebuilding or removing parts on the build.I wish they had better wire management for the eyes and motor, which goes to the control module that sits on the top back of the dinosaur. Speaking of the LED eyes, the tabs that bolt t the head were cast on the wrong side for the install. Still looks OK, but you know how kids immediately point out errors...
