The sets, which are available exclusively at Toys ‘R’ Us, include three buildable play sets and two buildable vehicles inspired by one of SEGA's most iconic video game characters.
The sets feature both Sonic and Knuckles, their signature speed racers and environments from the 65-plus video games in which they have appeared. Each model includes character figures, pull-back motors, stickers and tools, as well as a collectible Chaos Emerald. Individual play sets can also be combined to create larger environments.
"Sonic the Hedgehog has such a huge following with generations of fans," says Florence Pilard, marketing communications manager, Meccano. "It's so exciting to be able to put this legendary video game character into kids' hands with Erector's innovative construction play system."
