Now that Christmas is officially a thing of the past, our little ones are once again on the nagging for new toys to keep them entertained. Perhaps not all of you are in the same boat, but either way here at Lamb and Bear we want to give you some long lasting finds for little ones to keep entertained.
Starting off with the brand we all grew up with Meccano. Don’t you remember the days of highlighting your wish list, argos catalogue in hand, landing on the meccano metal helicopters and motorcycles! And not much has changed for this steam focused brand, its still a number one choice for kiddos all around the world.
We have been so fortunate to be sent the dinosaur set which comes with instructions on how to build 10 different models! Yes everything from raptor, to terrifying T-rex! The pack itself comes with 179 parts split up in plastic bags, including a screw driver and wrench for your metal screws and bolt. Can you tell I have no idea what I’m saying, mechanics are not my forte. But luckily we have a nice instruction booklet explaining each step simply.
I say simply, but in execution it is pretty fiddly. As a 30 year old women I had to bite my tongue from cursing, the parts are too tiny for my fat fingers perhaps. So I cant quite see my eight year old having the patience for the build.
So I would say this is definitely a family building activity, check out that double meaning! It surely did allow us to spend an hour together, and with a cool project to show for it. And he had a smile on his face the whole time!
You can get this set from Amazon for only £12.99 currently!
