Mega Giveaway Day 70 – Meccano M.A.X.

Mega Giveaway Day 70 – Meccano M.A.X.

When the girls were in elementary school, they were introduced to robotics through an after-school program. They both really enjoyed it and excelled both personally and as a team. Unfortunately, when they reached junior high they couldn’t fit it into their schedule. They know the high school team is always an option but need to keep their robotics skills sharp. Thankfully there are a number of “toys” that make that possible which we feel make awesome gifts so included some in our holiday gift guides. Meccano M.A.X. by Spin Master Games is one we felt so strongly about that we included it in both our Home and Electronics gift guide as well as our guide to STEM gifts. We’re stepping it up another notch by making Meccano our Day 70 Mega Giveaway prize!
