I really enjoyed building with this toy, and it was easy putting it together since the needed tools were provided. I also like the fact, that you can make it motorized if you wanted. I would recommend this building toy, to anybody who enjoys putting together Legos or other building sets.

I opened the box and was amazed at all the many, many parts. It truly can be built anyway you want. Since I'm not handy, I left it to my father to put together for my daughter. It took him over 2 days to complete it which I didn't expect since he's pretty good and fast at crafts like this. He was sh...see moreof the reviewer's review

This is a very intense, very detailed building kit. If you're new to this type of toy, you may want to start with something more simple. There are m...see moreof the reviewer's review

I got this for my 9 and 11 year old daughters who are very detail oriented, have long attention spans and love STEM projects. They were super excited when they saw it. It's great that it can be built in so many different ways and it seems well made and durable. The box says it's for ages 9+, but eve...see moreof the reviewer's review

My son was really looking forward to receiving the Meccano 25-in-1 Motorized Off-Road Racer. The kit is very well designed but the instructions and the many pieces to put together are overwhelming. It is a great product with all of the mechanical fasteners and quality made modeled parts. Instruction...see moreof the reviewer's review
