You may not be aware of this, but 2013 is the 100th anniversary of TINKERTOY! When I was in grade school we used to play with TINKERTOYS but I had no idea they had been around for 100 years. They have come quite a long way those 100 years to. The hard, colorless wooden pieces have been replaced by newly redesigned plastic pieces that snap together and stay together for long-lasting play.

Set also comes with a colorful instruction sheet that features building tips and ideas. Normally my younger kids (2-6) show the most interest in our TINKERTOYS, however Blake, who is 8 helped me open this box and saw a windmill he really wanted to create!

TINKERTOY 100 Piece Essentials SetThe only thing I was disappointed in was the box the Essentials Set came in. Normally TINKERTOY boxes come with a nice plastic lid- this one did not. I’m thinking this is because they assume you will be adding this set to a TINKERTOY set you already own, however if that was the case, why did they make the box so darn big? My kids were a bit disappointed to open up a HUGE box and only see the bottom covered.
