I'm really looking forward to when my son is hold enough to get properly stuck into Meccano. I always desperately wanted this as a child but since we were never a family to do things like Christmas present lists, my parents never 'guessed' that this might be a suitable toy for a girl! This Meccano Spykee Micro is on offer for half price at Argos, down from £19.99 to £9.99.
Less than a week to go till Christmas! Have you done all your shopping yet? We've got stacks of snow forecast so I'm a little dubious about shopping online right now. However, the great thing about this item is that it is in stock at a store near me so I can buy, and collect it myself. I think I'll be sticking with the places I can physically get to for the last few items I need to buy!
According to the website, the set is easy to build, and easy to play with. You control the robot's swift movements by infrared remote control. It has light and sound effects and comes with more than 20 parts. There's one robot to build - instructions and tool included.
Batteries are required - it takes three AAA and three LR44 batteries, which are included. Recommended age is seven years plus.
