Ducati Partner With Meccano To Create Unique Toy

If you’ve ever wanted to build your own Ducati - here’s your chance.

Ducati has signed a licensing agreement with Spin Master Corp. for the creation and distribution of a series of Meccano model sets based on Ducati motorcycles.

Spin Master Corp. is one of the leading companies worldwide in the children’s entertainment sector.

The first “Build and Play” set available is a Ducati Monster 1200 S.

The detailed set is made up of more than 290 parts and features coil-spring suspension, multi-piece wheels and real steering to create an authentic experience on a small scale.

The fine detail extends to a functioning kickstand and the side-mounted staggered shotgun exhaust.

The model is an easy to build project even for children as young as 10.

Ducati Licensing Director, Alessandro Cicognani, said “We are delighted to announce this new licensing agreement, which will allow us to develop Ducati motorcycles in the distinctive Meccano style”.

“I’m sure that Ducati fans of any age will have a lot of fun playing with the Meccano Build and Play series.”

I’m sure the big kids will have fun too.

The Ducati Monster 1200 S Build and Play set is already available at toy and hobby shops in Europe, and on eBay for around $50 Australian.
