It has now been over 100 years since Frank Hornby invented a toy to amuse his sons and called it Meccano. Like the product it described, the word is now known all over the world and has entered the dictionary as a term in common usage. Frank Hornby's vision of an educational toy became the basis of perhaps the most successful British Toy manufacturer of the 20th century, and for more than a hundred years Meccano has amused generations of boys, and a few girls, encouraging many to become successful engineers. For many of the children who grew up with Meccano it is still a fascinating way to "build a new toy every day".
