Needs to really really really test them with a whole range of people and really take on board any feedback give.

Like does the nut and bolt go through the 3rd or 4th hole?

Because it's bloody frustrating looking at instructions and trying to help DS - especiallly after wine.

I don't think the wine helps grin

Wine always helps grin

The pictures are just a little bit dark. Or maybe it's my eyes?

Lego instructions are much clearer bow than they were when I was a child (90s). My three year old has done a reasonable job of a kit that's supposed to be 6+.

Agree that the wine might not be conducive... grin

Lego instructions are wonderful. Streets ahead of every other instruction.

Lego has always been foolproof in our house. 10yr old DS whizzed through the millenium falcon recently.

Setting up an xbox has been a right royal PITA in our house today.

7 year old DD managed Lego fine from instructions l have always found Lego instructions really accurate and straightforward never had Meccano so can't comment

Lego instructions are ace, you need a degree in civil engineering to put Meccano together

DD ignores the instructions and creates something much better. And chucks the instructions in the bin. grin I leave her to it. Never bought Meccano.
