Erector 3 Model set includes 110 parts, detailed instructions and the tools to create a tractor, dragster and front scoop loader. This set is simple, does not take a lot of time and are perfect for the child who is always on the go. Erector sets have been supplying fun and prompting creativity in children for generations.
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 8 years of age.

Our 6-year old loves it! It's a bit complicated for him but it has provided a great opportunity for dad and son to work together on something. Also, the quality is first-rate. Toys just aren't made like this anymore. Thanks!
Product review of Erector 3 Model Set
Posted 11/15/2012 by William Rothman
I have not yet had my grandson attempt to put it together. However, when I looked at the instruction diagrams that came with it, I found it difficult to understand the orientations of the pieces in each of the models that could be built. On the box it said that instructions could also be seen at a website "www.erector-sets.com". Hoping to find clearer instructions, I tried to go to the website, but found it was not a functioning website.
I do see that as a significant problem.
