Now hands up those of you that used to have a Meccano set. Some of us can well remember those fiddly little brass nuts and bolts (that always seemed to come undone) and the bendy red metal body panels and long green struts. How many cranes did you build? It was always a crane… Things have changed somewhat and the latest from the company is the ‘monster Evolution 4×4 sports utility vehicle’. Chunky off-road tyres, working steering, ‘activated by crank and gears’, plus a realistic working front winch. You can get a 4×4 and an all-terrain truck for £34.99. There’s also an ATV quad bike for £29.99. It says that it’s suitable for those aged 8 and over. That’ll do us then.
