Why we love this

It’s creepy, it’s crawly and it’s built by you! Meet MeccaSpider, the latest in robotics from Meccano. 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 maths to successfully build it. Then, program the MeccaSpider to customise 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! Equally intellectually engaging, fun and scary, the MeccaSpider is a great way to introduce kids to the fun and innovative world of robotics!

Suitable for kids aged 10+.
5 x C batteries required (not included)

Our customers say

Meccano MeccaSpider Robot is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
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.
Date published: 2017-12-28
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Instructions arent very clear. Assembly is confusing. But it is manageable.
Date published: 2017-12-28
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.

Meccano MeccaSpider

  • Buildable and Programmable Robot That Guards, Tracks, and Attacks!

    Mecanno's MeccaSpider combines the fun of model building with the latest in robotics. Both entertaining and challenging, this STEM toy encourages development of skills in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The first step is to build the robotic spider, but it doesn't end there. Once constructed, kids can program the robot and interact with its unique personality thanks to a series of built-in, customizable modes and games.

    Control the versatile programmable robot using its built-in buttons or an app and infrared remote control. MeccaSpider features an IR sensor that detects movement so it can engage, pursue and apprehend whatever target enters its path.
  • Track and Attack

    The MeccaSpider uses an IR sensor to sense movement, track down, and attack its target. Once detected, the interactive robotic spider sprays a stream of venom (water) to capture and contain the enemy in its path.
  • Built-in Controls and Free App

    Innovative and versatile in design, you can control this programmable robot with either its onboard controls or the free Meccano app. Simply download the app onto a mobile device to control MeccaSpider's creepy crawly movements, emit sounds and spray venom.
  • Guard Mode - Keep Intruders Out

    Protect your room from intruders with MeccaSpider's fun and frightening Guard modes. The interactive robot for kids acts as a bodyguard, patrolling the area and keeping unwelcome guests out using its IR sensor to detect movement and attack.
  • Interactive Games

    Robotics for kids have never been more fun than when playing an interactive game of 'Venom Attack'. Gather in a circle with friends and sit very still. If the robotic spider senses movement, you may be the first to get sprayed and soaked with venom!

  • The Meccano Story De-constructed

    Meccano has a strong legacy of creating imaginative construction sets for children that goes all the way back to 1898 in England. In 1913, a similar construction toy company started out called Erector in the US. Meccano now owns Erector and is creating construction toys that inspire and educate through STEM learning and imaginative play that includes robotics for kids.
