Inspiring imagination since 1898
The idea for Meccano was born in a small shop in Liverpool in 1898 after its inventor, Frank Hornby, created a construction game for his kids using screws and nuts. Since then, and after joining forces with the US construction brand Erector, Meccano has grown from strength to strength to become the international knockout we all know and love today.
