I received an opportunity to review the Erector Evolution Tow Truck from Meccano. The tow truck is fully functional with an extendable and foldable tow bar. In addition, it has functional steering in the front wheels. You can build two different models with this set but only 1 model can be built at one time. With over 450 pieces this tow truck is going to take quite some time to put together.
My son is 12 years old and has always loved building sets. Usually my husband helps my son with the building as they enjoy having their father and son time together. In addition to building the tow truck you can use your imagination to build other things. Erector sets have been around for 100 years and are one of the most sturdy construction sets on the market today. I can remember growing up my mother used to buy my brother Erector sets and they are just as good years ago as they are now. With the real life movements of the pinion gear steering and fully functional tow bar that can connect to another vehicle to tow, this rig will bring a sense of realism to anyone that uses it. This set comes completely with stickers, tools, detailed instructions to build 2 models, 3 axles and six heavy tread soft rubber wheels for ultimate towing power, decals and assembly tools.
