I have two little inquisitive kids and I like to feed their imaginations with educational toys. I'm a K'NEX Brand Ambassador which means we get sent a nice box full of K'NEX Goodies in exchange for our personal review. The first toy that my kids gravitated to was the Tinkertoy. I personally had not heard of these toys but the kids informed me that they have been playing with these at their daycamp forever and these are 'the best'.
The kids were so excited with their new toy and ended up playing with the Tinkertoy Pink Building Set in the hallway because they were too excited to even walk to the family room.
My daughter made a flower per the instructions and my son made a huge contraption on wheels. It is fun to see them follow instructions and/or let their imaginations run wild. My daughter was so happy that we were sent the girls Tinkertoy version. Her favorite color is pink and she loves that there are so many girly colors for her to build girly themed structures. There were 150 pieces in the box which allowed for plenty of building time. I liked the fact that the pieces were sturdy and stayed put when clicked in so no kid frustration to deal with.
To stay up to date on TINKERTOY’s centennial celebration this fall, be sure you “like” the Tinkertoy facebook page and share it with your friends. We'll be hosting a Tinkertoy giveaway soon to celebrate the 100th anniversary - so keep posted.
