What It Is

K'NEX and Hasbro teamed up to create a modern, revitalized line of the classic toy brand Tinkertoy. The new K'NEX Tinkertoy sets are made with plastic instead of wood, so that the pieces easily snap together and stay together during play. With the 78 pieces in the Tinkertoy Animals Building Set, preschoolers can create a fish, turtle, mouse, or other familiar creature. The colorful guide provides a variety of building ideas. The set includes nostalgic Tinkertoy pieces that parents might remember, plus new and unique parts, such as bendable rods, eyes, ears, and a buildable figure. All the pieces come inside a box with lid for easy clean-up and storage.

Is It Fun?

Tinkertoy is a classic brand that has been around since 1913, and K'NEX has done a great job updating the brand to give it a modern look. While the colorful guide gives kids ideas for what they can build, the Tinkertoy Animals Building Set is really all about imaginative building. Preschoolers can build their own unique creatures with the pieces in this set, and the building play is a great way to help children with fine motor skills.

Who It’s For

The Tinkertoy Animals Building Set is for ages 3 and up.
