Description & Features+

Meet MeccaSpider, the latest in robotics from Meccano, formerly Erector. Completely unique, this 18” x 16” x 7.5” hi-tech spider is made from space-age materials and is controlled via its buttons or with the free app. Draw on concepts used in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math to successfully build it. Then, program the MeccaSpider to customize its behaviour. Once built and programmed, you can interact with its distinctive personality and discover what MeccaSpider can do! Not just a spider, this multi-legged robot is a bodyguard as well. Should you find yourself in a dangerous situation, this guard spider will spray a stream of venom at your assailant! It also comes with built-in games to keep you and your friends entertained. Play a round of spider-roulette and see who gets sprayed first! Equal parts intellectually engaging, fun and scary, the MeccaSpider is a great way to introduce kids to the fun and innovative world of robotics!

Meccano – MeccaSpider Robotic Programmable Toy with Built-in Games is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly cool toy for 10-year-olds As soon as I saw the box of the Meccano Meccaspider, I knew my boys would go nuts for it. My sons are 9 and 11 and are the perfect age for this. They went crazy when they saw it and acted like it was Christmas morning. My kids don't typically focus in on a specific toy for more than a couple hours, but they were working on it and playing with it for four hours before we had to leave to go somewhere. As soon as we got back, they went right to it again, which is rare in a house with chromebooks and smartphones. They love the toy, could not be more excited about it and I'm sure that any other kid who gets this will have a similar reaction. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meccaspider- AWESOME! My boys loved putting this together. They can't wait to try another model. My boys especially my older boy (15 years old) has always loved to put things together. It keeps them busy, helps them to think and it challenges them. The Meccaspider even sprays out water. They are still learning new things that you can have the robot do. Love this so much more than TV or video games. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ok, it's really awesome! I was skeptical about this product because I have a 13 year old boy who is "cool." He used to love building but that just isn't "in" right now. I placed the Meccaspider package on the table and didn't say a word. I just wanted to watch the initial reaction. My 10 year old daughter was trying to rip it apart right away, but my 13 year old just eyed it suspiciously. Finally, he said it looks cool, I'll try it (score 1 for Meccaspider). Fortunately, it rained over the weekend, so this was the perfect thing to take out and have my children put together. If you want 2-3 hours of uninterrupted quiet time to yourself, this is the toy to get - ASAP! I did not hear a peep from them. For 3 hours, my 10 year old daughter and 13 year old son sat together and yes, helped each other out. My daughter found it a little difficult, but she just turned 10. She was able to build many parts of the structure, but she definitely would have needed more adult supervision, my 13 year thought it was challenging, but it was "really cool" and he would definitely build again. Now, the moment of truth, trying it out. Thankfully, I had 5 "c" batteries, in the house, but it is a very uncommon battery type, so I would definitely make sure that you have those on hand. After holding our breaths for a few seconds, it light up! They then proceeded to play with it for a few more hours. The water gun roulette was definitely a favorite and the whole family participated in that game. Everyone actually put their phones away to play with the Meccaspider. One of my favorite parts was when it followed my daughter around like a pet. I tried to convince her we didn't need a dog, I don't think it worked. Spiders are not the best pets. This product has great reviews for me, because it was something that both of my children could do together. It would have been a bit frustrating for my 10 year old if her 13 year old brother wasn't helping her, so the age recommendations on the product are pretty spot on for the toy. The 13 year old put his phone down for almost an entire day, so that means it had to be awesome. It has been over a week since the original build and I am impressed with the longevity and structure of the Meccaspider. My daughter thinks it is her pet and has it follow her around and my son is experimenting with new tricks and has learned something new every day. I thought it was going to be the games that kept the 13 year old interested in the toy, but it is actually the engineering part. He is intrigued by the wiring and the "how" of the spider. It has definitely been more education that I originally thought it would be. He has already asked for others in the series. As a parent, I thought the manual was extremely parent/child friendly. It was color illustrated, easy to follow and in several languages, which is always a bonus. This is definitely something I would recommend to friends with children in this age range for holiday gifts, since at this age we are always struggling with ideas.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Long build and not very functional. Took around two hours to build. After we finished building it, the pump doesn't work that sprays "venom" and the Bluetooth phone control doesn't work for any longer than five minutes. Tried on a Google pixel, an iPhone, a Kindle and a Samsung. It takes 5 C batteries, and doesn't last an hour on five new batteries. Would not recommend. Very expensive for what it isn't. A pricey chunk of plastic that's novelty wears off in less time than it takes to assemble.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Meccano toy Great toy for kids who love to build but the app you download & move the spider with.......... sucks. We weren't able to download it & the reviews were bad. Other than the the spider itself is great & theres others way of moving it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great toy, it took a couple of hours to build like other customers had stated but well worth it. One of the best features is the app that you can download to control the spider. Would highly recommend this to anyone considering it.
