Review for Erector Set - Special Edition Set

For the $ paid, we expected a larger set, with more items included. The book of ideas of things to make was good. Items durable.

Fun to build, missing parts.

Got the kit for fun and had it out and built my first model in a day. Instructions are simple and could use more detail, but can be followed with relative ease. I'm missing a dozen or so parts, mostly small nuts and a bar or two, and the motor works sporadically - runs, slows to a crawl, then stops, repeats when turned off for 5 minutes or more - and the swivel mount design for the crane is terrible; works better if you don't use the orange spacers as bearings. Overall I am impressed with the kit and its versatility!!
Contact us about a paucity of parts or motor mishaps! We're mechanically inclined and geared up to serve you well. We contacted our customer with information on receiving replacement parts. Please visit the Returns & Exchanges center for details.)

My rating of Erector Set - Special Edition Set
Posted 4/8/2010 by Dianne Scheller

We bought this product to construct a invention for my son's science fair project. It looked great from the outset. When we were about halfway through the construction, we ran out of vital pieces. I contacted Meccano they said they would air mail me the missing parts at no cost but it would take 10 days. The science fair was in 8 days. I couldn't wait on the parts and have him fail science. I ordered a second set from Fat Brain Toys simply to complete the project - I do not blame them for the set being incomplete, after all, how would they know. We did finish the project and he received a decent grade. I am afraid that without Fat Brains promptness it may not have turned out so well.

Largest Erector Set

I think this is a good product although my 8 yr old great grandson and I have been having difficulty putting the items together right. The last time we worked on making the backhoe the 6 volt motor was working fine and the next time we went to work on it, the motor would not work. I got new batteries and put in it but it still doesn't work. Is there a warranty on this?
We emailed Lavone and advised her that she could contact Nikko -the manufacturer of Erector- directly and they would ship any replacement parts that she was needing for her set.

Special Edition Erector Set

I had an Erector Set when I was a kid, and the memories from that time were wonderful. Given that, my expectations were high. I can honestly say that this set (ordered for my son) is already meeting my wishes for his enjoyment. The set comes in a self-contained case with room for more parts should you choose to add on. I plan to purchase additional sets in the future to create endless possibilities. The price for this set is a bit high, but the experience learned from using it is priceless, and I dare say that this same experience has helped me fix many mechanical things in my life. I highly recommend this product to any parent wishing to give their child a head start in this mechanical world.
