|The finished submarine complete with stickers and Rabbid!|
Yesterday His Nibs made a post talking about how useful this little set is (See HERE). I said nothing. My first hands on dealings with these sets was back in August, last year, when I found a few sets going cheap on Amazon. A few clicks later and I had my first Rabbids. You can see the story HERE and it continues HERE. I was surprised at how much traditional Meccano is included in these sets. Prior to that I had my suspicions these could be useful but did not get a chance to go any further. Last year (2013) at the London Toy Fair I noticed a new Rabbid Submarine but did not get to look at it because His Nibs had dismissed it as kid's stuff he was not in the slightest bit interested. I must admit, the Evolutions sets were taking my attention as well and I did not go back to look at the Rabbids at the time.

|The Rabbid socket!|
For the youngsters collecting Rabbids, there is another addition dressed in yellow bib & brace trousers with blue head gear printed with an anchor. All in all a very nice kit. To stop him rattling around and falling out, Meccano have included the must-have part for 2014 - the Rabbid socket. Now don't all rush at once!
