Build Future Engineers and be Amazed!
At what age do you start teaching your child ‘something different’?
This is a highly debatable question and the answer differs from parent to parent. Personally I think if the child can understand ‘don’t put it in your mouth‘, it is time for Junior Meccano.
With supervision and assistance, you will be amazed at how fast our babies learn. It has been found that children begin to understand logic, 3 to 5 step commands, and the difference between reality and fantasy at the age of four.
However, it’s common knowledge that children under the age of 7 acquire foreign languages extremely rapidly. So why not Junior Meccano?
A lot of parents are looking for toys that will get children away from a TV screen but will actually absorb them and take their full attention. Meccano is definitely worth a look. But if you’re not familiar with the toy, or haven’t seen the recent sets then it’s worth finding out a bit more to make sure you buy the right toy. Junior Meccano definitely focuses on hand-eye co-ordination and develops fine motor skills. This is a very useful skill to develop, and one that likely suffers when children spend so much time in front of screens.
Meccano sets tend to have several models that can be made and with the larger sets each model can take several hours for a novice to build. There’s a lot of building time in a Meccano set. And of course once kids have mastered the techniques they can start to build their own machines. They will need help from time to time, but that’s why we are there, right?
Below are some of the Junior Meccano Sets that might interest you and your child:
