I played with these when I was a kid, and that was a long time ago. My kids played with tinker toys and now my grandchildren are doing the same.
Did you know that Tinker Toys were created by a stonemason? He came up with the design after watching kids play with sticks and spools.
Who would have ever imagined that wooden sticks and spools with holes in them could hold the attention of a child for so long?
This is Tyler with just one of his many creations from our classic wooden tinker toys set.
Tyler will sit and build with these for hours and when he finishes one his projects he can't wait to show it off.
I sit and watch Tyler play with something that he has already built, and I'm just amazed at how his imagination runs wild.
He plays with it for a while then tears it apart and begins to build something new. The ages on the 225 piece set that we have are 3+. How true, because I have just as much fun building with him.
Classic Wooden Tinker Toys are the perfect gift for boys and girls alike.
