The Teen years are exactly where our challenges as parents starts. Maybe Meccano for Teens – The Erector Series, will solve some of our headaches. Being a parent of 3 boys myself, I definitely had some obstacles to overcome as they grew up. We are facing a lot of negative influence out there that has the ability to turn our lives upside down concerning our children. Below are some of the cases I had to deal with, and I’m sure, you too:
‘The Bad Boys’
- The wrong choice of friends
- Social Media
These are all things that we as parents have to deal with on a daily basis. This does not mean that we failed as parents. You ave no control over who and what happens at school, the library, anywhere for that matter. ‘Social Standard & Pressure’ is to blame for this. If you could get your child interested in Meccano for Teens, it’s a battle half won.
Following are some of the Erector Series currently available:
It’s slick. It’s iconic. And it’s ready for building! Introducing Meccano’s Ducati model motorcycle kit! In this set, young builders get hands on as they use real tools (included) to create an authentic Ducati Desmosedici GP– complete with coil-spring suspension and multi-piece wheels! The ideal challenge for the experienced builder, this S.T.E.A.M. kit encourages curious young minds to explore concepts from science, technology, engineering, arts and math, while piecing together metal parts. As they tighten the last bolt and add the authentic decals, (included) young builders experience an incredible sense of satisfaction and accomplishment! Once finished, builders can proudly put their creation on display or take their new wheels for a spin! For years, Meccano has created imaginative construction sets that inspire the next generation of innovators.

This Meccano Erector kit Super Construction has an incredible total of 25 building models available. This ensures that your child will be busy for hours assembling the many different projects included.
As a result, you can expect their motor skills and hand-eye coordination abilities to improve greatly. Furthermore, it’s likely that your child will also be able to improve their concentration too.
We liked how the set encourages children to be creative. This is because it allows them to mix and match different parts to make a completely original erector set. We were also impressed with how the crane has a motorized feature since it has a 6V electrical motor built-in to it. this means kids can use it to rotate around and extend the hook.
Parents appreciate how it comes with a carrying case as it makes storing the various parts away a lot easier.
And don’t forget our Teen Girls
As you can see, our girls are right up there with the boys enjoying the learning process while creating a masterpiece.
