    Grandson loves them. When I asked a very helpful saleslady in your store in a shopping mall on Rt. 7 in No. Va. for the original set she showed me, but recommender the newer, plastic version. She was a granny like myself and said she understood the nostalgia but that the children could do so much more with the newer version. I took her advice and was happy I did. My grandson and siblings enjoy it so much.

    My only fault is that I bought a separate storage container, so they wouldn't be all over the place.

    I was disappointed to see my girls not more interested in playing with the Tinkertoys, especially since I was such a big fan when I was little. The 100 pieces don't seem like much (I had to count to make sure all were there) and they get used up pretty quickly. The box was so big, I expected more after they opened it. I would get the set with more pieces next time.

        This product is actually an addition to the Tinker Toys we already have for our grandson. He loves to build things, and the ease of handling and connecting the parts is wonderful for his little hands. The colorful and durable parts are easily stored.

        Comments about K'NEX Tinkertoy 100 Piece Essentials Value Set:

        Product is hours of fun. For the price, it should come with a set of the black wheels that are included in other sets. The box it comes in is horribly oversized for what comes inside.

            Comments about K'NEX Tinkertoy 100 Piece Essentials Value Set:

            I bought this for my grandchildren. They enjoyed the flexibility of some of the parts, they could mold into flowers and other creative things. There are 100 parts which seemed a lot to me until I got them home and only one child could make things with them because most of the same parts were needed to make their creations.

            I need to get another set so the children don't fight over parts. These are a little pricey but they are fun for the children.

              "From My Childhood."

              from Suburban Philadelphia, PA

              Comments about K'NEX Tinkertoy 100 Piece Essentials Value Set:

              I purchased this item to honor the memory of the creator of the toy and the manufacturer and seller. The fact that two children at the cathedral were tremendously happy to receive it from my hands and listened with some amazement when I explained the longevity of the toy's popularity: pretty much 'made my Christmas.'

                I was surprised to find that Tinker Toys were still manufactured. I was skeptical when I noticed that they are not wooden as they were when I was a child. However, now seem stronger and more durable (resist snapping and splintering) and my girls have fun with the flexible longer bars.

                Great for 2 years and up....both of my children (ages 2 and 6) love using their imagination and building with our Tinkertoys! Love the new bendable pieces that enhance the building.
