Lock the kids PS3 and Wii in the cupboard this Christmas and get them this classic construction kit that has entertained and educated the worlds youngsters for years.
Some people are forecasting this will be this years 'must have' toy this Christmas following the recent publicity James May gave it on his Toy Stories programme on the BBC. Buy now, whilst stocks are available, before they are being sold for ridiculous amounts on auction sites to desperate Santas.
Meccano is a model construction kit consisting of perforated metal strips, plates and girders, wheels, pulleys, gears, shaft collars and axles, and nuts and bolts to connect all the pieces together.
Meccano is not just any toy, it is educational too, teaching basic mechanical principles like levers and gearing. The skills that once made Britain great, the skills that this country now so sadly lacks as children are submersed into an electronic, virtual world of fantasy and make believe. This Christmas gift idea will not only give your children hours of creative fun, but may eventually help put the Great back into Great Britain.
And if the ungrateful brats don't like it, what better excuse to buy it for yourself to enjoy this Christmas?
Meccano Starter Kit. Choose from: Tractor, Helicopter, Motorbike, Plane, Buggy or Digger. Why not buy all six?
