Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not That great I am just really not impressed with this toy at all. My kids found it extremely difficult to put together and so did i. This is not a product i would buy. The idea of it sounds great. My boys are really into robots. It took hours to put together. my kids lost interest after about an hour and a half. Im not sure if all the parts are even there. Some of the pieces are very tiny and hard to connect with 2 hands. The inst to me were not that clear either. if you are a teeny bit off the entire robot is off . I think the instructions need to be more clear and match colors to the actual pieces. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Frustrating, complex, aggravating Very complex, challenging activity. There are many very small parts in this kit. My 9 year old son who loves to assemble things, found this to be too difficult even with my help. The instructions are not detailed and are confusing. By the end of an hour, we were only 1/4 of the way done with one of the possible constructions and he had given up. I would not recommend this toy to anyone that doesn't want to intensely supervise and give a great deal of assistance with assembly. That said, even adults who are not mechanically inclined will find this frustrating beyond belief. I cannot recommend this product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Little Disappointed I am a mother of 3 boys and was extremely excited to have received Meccano - 25 Models Set - 4x4 Off-Road Truck to try out with my children. My boys are 11, 10 and 9 years old and all had difficulty putting together any of the instructions. (Even I had difficulty helping them with it). It took 3 children and 3 adults to finally put together one of the trucks (and we haven't taken it apart to try another model). I think this kit should be for much older children, with better (easier) instructions and a better tool to put the pieces together. All in all, we still had fun having family time trying to build one of the models. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not marketed for correct age group I was worried this would be too easy for my 13 yr old son who is on the robotics team at school because it says ages 9+. It was extremely difficult for him. All 3 of my sons have spent more than 20 hrs trying to build this and got stuck on step 51 out of 63 yes 63 steps. There are over 440 very small parts in this kit and they DO NOT line up. This would be better geared to older teenagers and probably even better as a group activity. The positives are that it encourages creativity and problem solving for those who enjoy being challenges. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing toy, hours of enjoyment I have purchased and used other Meccano products before and have always been satisfied. The 4x4 off-road truck set is just as great! Have an amazing time with my boys building it and then playing with it. The best part, we can take it apart and make other models. The directions are easy to read. The tools that come with it are great . It is nice that the tools are the same for all of their sets. It makes it easier when helping the boys build or if one gets misplaced. Overall this is a great toy and the brand itself is amazing! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meccano 4x4 The idea of this is great, but it's very tedious and time consuming. My son and I sorted parts and tools and decided on a model to try. Not all the models instructions are included only a couple. You will have to download them online to get them all. After a few hours of working we both got frustrated and gave up. My son has tinkered a little with it but not much has been accomplished. I just don't have the patience for it I guess. Overall the concept is great we are just struggling with how long it takes and again, patience. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Takes at least 2 people I gave this to my son who is 11 and my daughter who is 16 to play around with each model. The directions are hard to understand. They got frustrated after only 30 minutes and decided to try to make something on their own. They made a pretty cool truck. They also complained of their thumbs hurting after a while since there are so many screws/bolts to use to hold everything together. The motor broke to move the wheels as soon as they put it on the ground to try it out. I would no recommend this to a child. This has to be done by a person who has patience and only wants to model it. The picture was taken an hour after the 2 kids Sayers's to put it together and got this far because the directions were not clear. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Meccano 25 models set 4x4 off road truck The concept is pretty cool, my son was very excited about this toy being able to change into 25 different models. Pretty cool right! Well I must say the difficulty of this toy is a 9 at least for me, some of the pieces are very small which adds to the difficult level. Overall it is very entertaining and perfect for those kids and adults that like a challenge. It took us about an hour to make a small part of the truck. Very time consuming but will be worth it at the end. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
