Meccano has announced a year-long partnership with the Scouts, to promote creative learning among boys and girls aged six to ten and a half years-old.

Sue Barratt, country manager, Meccano Toys UK, says: "The Scout Association is a perfect fit for Meccano. Our brands are valued and trusted so the fit is excellent. Our mission is to promote traditional play that encourages children to stretch their imagination.

"The other beauty of Meccano is the collaborative qualities that it brings. Parents can join in with their children, in the same way that leaders and peers can work together to make ever more creative constructions."

When taking the Creative Challenge, sponsored by Meccano, kids can build Meccano models as part of obtaining their Cub Creativity Badge.

Beavers and Cubs can also get involved in the ‘Building Britain with Meccano’ challenge, which involves making famous local landmarks, such as the Angel of the North or Big Ben, from Meccano.

At the Beaver/Cub Fun Day at Gilwell Park in June next year, entrants will get the chance to see their models on a giant map of the British Isles. The winner, judged by Sue Barrat, will win a star prize for their Colony or Pack.

Simon Carter, assistant director of the Scout Association said: "The Meccano partnership is a great fit with Scouting. The Scout Movement encourages young boys and girls to be creative in all that they do. Meccano provides the perfect tool to harness the creative thoughts and ideas contained within every Cub Scout."
