My kids needed an new set of TinkerToys as they had an original wooden version for over a year that they love (many wooden piece eventually broke through rough use). They use it to build arrows or weapons, tools, make letter shapes, use small pieces as food for tea parties or as money, etc. I love that they can use it for so many different things. I have a 4 year old boy and 3 year old girl and they both use them multiple times a day. I like the updated plastic version as I imagine they won't break as easy as the wooden ones. I did like the original wooden version as well, however.

My 3 year old son ...

By happymom

from Saranac, MI, United States

Comments about K'NEX Tinkertoy Building Set - Transit:

My 3 year old son received this set as a gift and he loves it.  At first, he loved to play with the creations we made for him and now he is able to make his own "latest & greatest inventions".  The set includes many suggestions of things to build, but it is disappointing to a 3 year old to have to take apart our first creation in order to build a second one.  We recently purchased another set for him as a Christmas gift so he is able to have more pieces to work with.

Hours of FUN with imaginative play. My son with Aspergers builds many different things. The ability to flex the pieces make them more versatile. They are pricey however, we got them BOGO so it was totally worth it.

          My 3 year old & 5 year old boys love these Tinkertoys. They are both curious & creative, so they are just perfect for them to play with. I just think that the price is too high.

                Our 4 yr. old has creatively played with this product everyday on and since the day we purchased it. From what I have witnessed it had sparked his imagination and inspired his creative ability. It's wonderful for young children.

                  I bought this set for my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter who came to visit from NJ. It was the best toy ever. She loved them,sat there forever playing and putting all the pieces together making her own masterpieces. She was learning not just playing and she was so proud of what she was putting together. A bit expensive but worth it. I wish I new how to use the video part of this to show you how much fun she truly had with this toy.
