My sons received this last year, I think it lasted two hours, if that, they look after their toys but this was the most fragile toy they've ever had.

they are fragile as most boys tend to find the heaviest toy out there to lift ,its probably best for playmobil etc
but cable tie the arm and add some weight to the legs and it'll be fine

I want one too and I'm definitely not a kid...

And some grown men.

Careful, titles like that can get the feminazis really wound up !

Have you actually had this... or are you on commission?

Cheap rubbish that does withstand even basic, gentle play.

Save your money...

Its naff

Had one last year for my son. Not very good really. Kept falling over and it broke the next day. Waste of money imo.

At least it won't cause any damage to your house like this guy ...

I reckon the majority of breakages with these are because kids use them to pick up toys other than the accessories included which obviously they are not designed to do.

Any kid gets bored with rules and restrictions.

Got one and nothing wrong with it. There is a torque ratchet to stop overload. You need to put a weight in the back, rice or something to counter balance the load. It will lift around 250g.

It will not lift small children, animals or sofas. That might break it

Keep your nasty comments for yourself.
As I said I just ordered it for my 3 year old boy! Haven't received it yet so I can't really say if it's good or not. But I'm 100% sure that he will be over the moon and that's what meters.

It's not just 'feminazis' that think it's wrong. Kids should be able to have toys that THEY want to play with, not what marketing departments say they should want. If a girl wants a construction set, she shouldn't be put off that's it's only for boys. It just reinforces gender stereotypes. Anyway, good deal, hot.

I'm not going to insult the item because it may have improved in quality since last year and mine could have been a one off of bad stock. For those buying however, I would suggest keeping your receipt or return label on the off chance you there is a problem.

lol at the good for girls comments to many people been watching the news.

gender stereotypes never hurt anyone.

Don't be rude and insecure! the people who said it's good for girls too are not "feminazis". I had an engineer dad who thought girls would love meccano and I did! And now my daughter teaches science - so all power to girls getting construction toys as well as Barbie

Are you for real?

I won't "keep my nasty comments to myself", I'm attempting to save people money.

You've not had the item and I have, ergo I feel I'm more than 'qualified' to comment.

Prehaps you should shop for some thicker skin whilst you're about it...

As long as he has enough coins to feed it.........

If you read it again you will find that I never accused the people here of being 'Feminazis' nevertheless they do exist and bite at every occasion.
It's more of a comment about the Fascist left which is a growing threat and the way they can turn innocent comment into crime requiring 're-education'.
