Classic Tinker Toy Building Sets have been around for as long as I can remember.
I played with these when I was a kid, and that was a long time ago. My kids played with Tinker toys. Now, my grandchildren are doing the same.
The Creation of Classic Tinker Toy Building:
Did you know that Tinker Toys were created by a stonemason? He came up with the design after watching children playing with sticks and empty spools of thread. The toy was manufactured in 1914 in Evanston Illinois. Tinker Toys are definitely another tried and true classic toy.
Fun with Classic Tinker Toy Construction Building:
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. When he finishes one of his many projects he can’t wait to show it off.
I sit and watch Tyler play with something that he has already built. I’m just amazed at how his imagination runs wild. The photo is, of course, Tyler with his latest creation.
He plays with it for a while then tears it apart. Then, he begins to build something new.
The ages of this 225 piece set that we own are 3+. How true, because I have just as much fun building with him. You can build from the instructions. Or, let your child’s imagination take them wherever they want.
And, for some additional fun, this set comes with 20 glow in the dark pieces. Use them in a building project and then turn out the lights. Build something fun using the included design guide or as Tyler does use your imagination. As you can see from the photo this is his latest creation. Combine this set with other sets to expand the fun.To build even larger more complicated structures.

Tinker Toys are as much fun for the parents (and now us as grandparents) as they are for the kids. One of those ‘classic’ toys that will never go out of style. Love the picture of Tyler. I have a grandson named Tyler, too. 🙂
We’ve had this Tinker Toy set for years and have had so much fun with our grandsons. This one is for sure a classic. Thanks for stopping by Pat 🙂
