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.

Love This!

By MiMa

from Ontario, Canada

Comments about K'NEX Tinkertoy Building Set - Transit:

Good timing for receipt of order from company to ON, Canada. Given as gift for three year old grandson who needed more challenging toys and HE LOVES building all the models pictured. (Can remember playing with tinker toys when I was a child and enjoying them) Will continue to purchase directly from this company for future presents! Love that they are made in the USA.

    Comments about K'NEX Tinkertoy Building Set - Transit:

    I just purchased this Tinkertoy set for my 4-year-old grandson's birthday. This tech-savvy child told his Mom: "I can build anything with these toys! What are they called again?" He's the third generation in our family to enjoy this classic building set. They used to be made of wood, and the rods occasionally broke. The new plastic ones are flexible, easier to keep clean, and include lots of fun features.

    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.
