Tinkertoys have always provided creative play for our family in the past, but imagine witnessing the frustration of a child who has designed and built a Tinkertoy "project" only to have it fall apart. I was embarassed that my gift was so poorly manufactured. I tried to contact Hasbro regarding this issue, but was not accorded the courtesy of an answer.
That said, the toy remains a great creative do-anything building set, appealing to both the actual child (age 4, in this case) and the "inner child" (age 40-something). I didn't have Tinkertoys as a kid, but I sat down to play with them as eagerly as my son. However, we ran out of pieces all too soon, and I can see that we're going to want to supplement the set if his building craze continues. Also, one of the rods already has a splinter splitting off after one day of play, so I don't think they're as durable as a parent might wish.
The pieces are well made and feel good in the hand. They all go together in satisfying ways, and the things you can build somehow all feel well constructed.
Classic wonderful toy for people who like to build. Some pieces are choking hazards, so 3 is the minimum age, and then only for kids who don't put things in their mouths.
So I headed out to the local Toys r Us looking for them and could not find them.. went to a store clerk and had a lengthy discussion with someone half my age that I was NOT looking for Lincoln Logs.. but Tinkertoys! I ended up having to order them through Amazon/Toys r Us.
Christmas day arrived and once everything was opened (and the novelty of his new Power Rangers began to wear off), he turned his attention to the cannister that he had unwrapped but not opened. Upon opening them he immediately dumped them out and started putting them together. I sat down with him doing the same.. but the best part was that my mother was there that morning and she sat down and started building as well, just like she did with me when I was that age.
The Tinkertoys themselves are pretty much just as I remember them.. still made of wood.. and still just as durable. If your little one likes to be creative and build things.. then get these.. and help them expand their imagination and creativity!
