My son tried out the Meccano Mountain Rally 25 Model Set. He likes to assemble things but hasn’t really had a lot of opportunity to use tools so I thought that would be fun for him.
It’s a kit with a lot mechanical pieces and a detailed instruction manual on how to assemble it. My son likes to follow the directions to the letter the first time around, and then he will disassemble the toy and rebuild it free-form.
Using the tools require two hand dexterity and good fine motor skills. This is the perfect project for a rainy day, when you can spread out and take over the kitchen table all day.
He spent two different evenings assembling the Meccano set, getting to the point where he could see how the mechanized car will work.
The Meccano Mountain Rally, 25 Model Set is on sale for $35 at Amazon right now. Kids who like erector sets, building with tools, and small mechanical parts will enjoy this re-usable kit! It makes a great STEM gift!
