EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Don't just build one way with Meccano; build five ways with the Meccano Roadster 5 in 1 set. Using the 174 pieces in this set, you can build five different stylish cars (one at a time) that all function with a pull-back motor. That means that once you've built a car, just set it on a flat surface, pull back, and let go to watch it zoom off.

The set comes with two kid-friendly real tools, plus real metal nuts, bolts, and wheels for an authentic building experience.

Is It Fun?

Kids who like to build with construction sets and play with toy cars will like the combination of the two with this set. Plus, the ability to rebuild into so many different car models offers lots of versatility for young car enthusiasts. Kids will like that they can display their finished car models or actually send their cars zooming off with such a simple function.

Who It’s For

The Meccano Roadster 5 in 1 is for ages 8 and up. This will be fun for kids who like construction sets and toy cars.

What To Be Aware Of

It took us between 45 minutes and one hour to build the set, and the instructions were somewhat easy to follow. Keep in mind that this set has a difficulty level of 2, which means it is for a novice builder.

The instruction booklet comes with instructions for building the first three models. The instructions for the next two models can be found online.
