A New Twist on TinkerToy

My kidlets have discovered the thrill of building with TinkerToy’s with the TinkerToy Vehicles TinkerToyBuilding Set.  The Vehicle Building Set is our first TinkerToy set.  I don’t know why we didn’t have any previously, but I do know that we will be getting more!

As a K’NEX blogger, I received the TinkerToy Vehicles Building Set for review.  It is designed to foster creativity in young builders and allow them to learn as they play.  The included plans give instructions on building a helicopter, sailboat, truck, and several other vehicles.

TinkerToy’s are newly redesigned.  The TinkerToy pieces are still colorful.  They still snap and stay together for long-lasting play.  Included in this 78-piece set includes wheels, a propeller, a little TinkerToy guy, and a set of eyes that can be added to whatever vehicle they please.  So what’s the twist, you ask?  New bendable rods!  They make building SO much fun!   Tinkertoy sets
The TinkerToy spools, rods  and connectors are made in the USA and are intended for ages 3+.

When I first opened the box, Mister said, “Oh, wow, I know this is going to be fun!”  I asked him why he said that, he said, “Mom, it’s called TinkerToy.  With a name like that, it’s gotta be fun.”  LOL.  Indeed. Okay, now that I’ve told you about the newly improved TinkerToy, let me show you the fun!

As you can see, Hubs joined in the fun.

I am pleased as punch to see Mister and Sister playing with this building set so much.  They have spent hours upon hours building, taking apart, and rebuilding with them.  We’ve added the all new TinkerToy Animals Building Set, Transit Building Set, and Big Top Building Set to Mister’s wish list for his birthday.

TinkerToy’s are available at, Target, Walmart, Toys R Us, on Amazon, and wherever quality toys are sold.

  1. I had actually forgotten about the wonder of Tinker Toys! They’re so much fun to play alone or with other children (or Adults)! I sure hope parents and other “gift=givers” remember to give these as great gifts! Improved even!
