  • A licensing agreement has been signed between Ducati and Spin Master Corp. to create Meccano building set versions of the iconic motorcycles
  • The first build and play set is already available for the Ducati Monster 1200 S

Borgo Panigale, Bologna (Italy), 11 March 2016 - Ducati is thrilled to announce a new global licensing agreement with Spin Master Corp., one of the leading companies worldwide in the children's entertainment sector, for the creation and distribution of a series of Meccano model sets dedicated to the iconic Italian motorcycles.

Ducati makes its Meccano debut with the Ducati Monster 1200 S Build and Play. The detailed set features coil-spring suspension, multi-piece wheels and real steering for an authentic experience at a small scale. No detail of Ducati’s exceptional design has been missed, from the functioning kickstand to the side-mounted staggered shotgun exhaust. The model is an easy-to-build project for fans as young as 10 and is made up of more than 290 parts, in Ducati’s eye-catching red design.

The Ducati Monster 1200 S Build and Play set is already available at toy and hobby shops.

“We are delighted to announce this new licensing agreement, which will allow us to develop Ducati motorcycles in the distinctive Meccano style”, stated Alessandro Cicognani, Ducati Licensing Director. “I’m sure that Ducati fans of any age will have a lot of fun playing with the Meccano Build and Play series”.

“Meccano and Ducati are both legendary brands with legions of fans around the world and we’re excited to bring these two icons together for the first time”, said Ben Gadbois Global President and Chief Operating Officer, Spin Master Corp. “The Meccano Monster 1200 S model has the unmistakable design and distinguishing features that visibly communicates the sophistication, timeless quality and uniqueness of a Ducati”.
