Save over £35 on a build-your-own programmable Meccano Max robot

Upgrade your kid’s toy game with this awesome Meccano robot, now price-slashed over at Amazon UK.

Amazon is peddling the Meccano Max for a lowly price of just £112.49, which is a major discounted on the original £149.99. Better still, this item is eligible for free one-day delivery with an Amazon Prime membership.

The Meccano Max is a 12-inch advanced robot that features both artificial intelligence and customisable programming.

He comes with built-in infrared sensors too, which can help him sense obstacles and navigate surfaces as he rolls around on sturdy “smart” wheels.

Amazon says this Meccano robot is the perfect gift to “challenge young minds”, and will be a great addition to the toy-chest of “budding engineers, builders and visionaries”.

We should also note that the Meccano robot is intended for children aged 10 or older, due to the intermediate complexity level. There’s also a build time of between one and three hours, which is a great way to kill some time before Christmas dinner.

We haven’t reviewed this product, but the Meccano Max has received some great feedback from customers on Amazon US.

One user wrote: “I wanted to review this Meccano Max because my daughter is super crazy into building things and loves Meccano toys. She absolutely LOVED it!! Over the course of two days – and only because I made her stop and do something else – she built this little guy. She didn’t need or want my help at all.”

The reviewer continued: “She just read the instructions and built it using the included tools. I just looked on helplessly. The smile on her face as she built it was all I needed to know [that] this thing was awesome.”
