My 3 year old is very much into his trucks and tractors, but we mix things up a little bit and try to introduce something that is a bit more creative when we can and these new tinkertoys are great. They are all plastic and very easy to connect together (especially if your little one is like mine and thinks that everything should be able to go in the bathtub:) (If you have the old school wooden tinkertoys, I would not advise getting them anywhere near water as they swell and will never go back together:(
Anyway, My son started off organizing the pieces into shapes, color, size, etc... and a week later he has started to build structures and refers to them in all his imaginary glory! I love to see him grow and he loves to tinker (just like his dad:)
Would definately recommend. Slam dunk!

It is a good toy for my grandson. The packaging needs to be improved. My box of tinkertoys had pieces missing. When I contacted Toys R Us, the attitude was "Oh well, we're sorry", but never offered to replace or correct problem. When I contacted Knex Toys, they offered to replace missing parts.

Comments about K'NEX Tinkertoy 65 Piece Essentials Value Set:

We had a set of old wooden Tinker Toys. We bought these stupidly without reading the box - just assumed they were wooden too. They're not. They' like a cross between K'Nex and Tinker Toys. They're ok. The kids played with them for about 20 minutes and then never again.

      Comments about K'NEX Tinkertoy 65 Piece Essentials Value Set:

      So let me say right off the bat, these are WAY better than the tinkertoys I bought for my kids years ago. Those pieces of junk broke so easily it was ridiculous. These are very sturdy, very well made. And yes, a bit hard to pop out once you put them in. I purchased a larger set at Toys R Us (website says they only have the 65 piece set, but I found a bigger one in the store). If my kids each want to make something, let's just say it offers a lot of opportunity for waiting your turn and sharing. Because there are a whole lot of connectors and not enough rods. At any rate, they're enjoying it, and I am so pleased I no longer have broken tinkertoys everywhere.

        Purchased for my 2 1/2 year old. The product is marketed for 3+ but I took a chance. She likes playing with it and we build things together. They are a bit hard for her to snap together, but she is young still. Overall, great starter set and we look forward to more fun with these!

                My son is 2 and absolutely loves the TinkerToys! He typically plays with a new toy for 5-10 minutes before moving on. However, he stays busy building hammers, motorcycles, and robots for extended periods. Its the first and last toy he plays with everyday. My husband and I really enjoy playing with them too! I highly recommend them for the whole family and plan to buy hoards of them soon!

                        Kind of disappointing. Spent a lot of money for the original product and it was just a few items of a completely new product. Items are pretty easily lost and then you can't make any of the displayed items if anything is missing because there is just enough.
