Another Example of Bad Design Changes,
= Durability: = Fun: = Educational:
This review is from: Tinkertoy Classic Mini Set (Toy)
Being as I was born in the fifties I still remember the tinkertoys from that era. This set (and doubtlessly the other sets) is direct-to-landfill junk. The sticks are different diameters stick-to-stick, color-to-color, they don't fit tightly in the wooden pieces, there are !2! hub pieces, the two idlers are useless since they have no holes in the circumference, the yellow plastic hinges all fall out.
Sorry. Ridiculuosly lousy design changes and QC. Don't buy this for your kids.

Ain't lousy Chinese "Quality Control" grand? Another classic toy ruined by outsourcing and non-existent quality control. But it's cheap, which is the only thing most people care about, right? ;(
