TINKERTOY’s 100th Birthday #Giveaway



I just found out recently that my Great Grandma is 106. She lives in Hong Kong so I haven't seen her in a while but we plan on taking a trip to Hong Kong soon because we have 5 generation of women on my Mother's side and that warrants a once in a lifetime photo opportunity to celebrate 5 generation of strong women!

Did you know there is someone else celebrating a birthday soon? 
It is Tinker Toys!  They will be 100 years old this fall!

To celebrate Tinker Toy is launching their new TINKERTOY 100 piece essentials set in July.
 
 
 Tinkertoy builds imagination! I have two little inquisitive kids and these toys keep them so busy.  My son put together the rotating fan per the instructions that came with the Tinkertoy 100 piece essentials set that we received for review.  The pieces just snaps together and stays together.  No frustrations just pure fun.  If you have a little girl in your household then check out my review of the Tinkertoy Pink Building set. My daughter was so happy to see a toy in her favorite color: pink.

 

 Can you believe TINKERTOY used to look like this?  I'm so grateful for all the fun colors and shapes that have evolved over the years!

Lincoln Log - Horse Shoe Hill set Review


Summer is here already!  We're two weeks in and we've kept our children busy so far with day camp and a trip to the shore this weekend.  I like to keep them busy and engaged since anytime they get out of routine the whining, boredom and endless bickering begins.  Educational workbooks and toys that make my children use their imagination is top of my list this summer.

One of these imaginative toys is Lincoln Logs.  Lincoln logs has to be a childhood favorite for many kids.  Did you know Lincoln logs were introduced in 1916?  This toy continues to catch the eye of generations and generations of children. Now that I am an adult I'm loving that my children love the logs too. 

 
 My son kindly put together the Lincoln Log - Horseshoe Hill set that we received for review.  This building set includes real wood logs plus colorful figures and accessories (83 pieces in total)!  The Lincoln logs require powers of concentration an eye-hand coordination.  My son is now 8 and I was impressed that he required no help from me and was able to construct the set in no time.  My son enjoys constructing sets so his response to "how did you like it" was "It was fun putting together- maybe I could be a builder when I grow up".  I remember the original set that we brought a few years back took a little longer for him as he was much younger. I like that when playtime is over, the parts can be put back into the handy storage container for a quick and easy clean-up.  Of course my son loves to keep his building set on display for family and friends to see!  You are not limited to just building the horseshoe hill set solely. I intend to mix the pieces from our original set so my children can build more than one cabin at a time.
