Tinkertoy 100-Piece Essentials Building Set Review (K'NEX)

What It Is

The Tinkertoy 100-piece Essentials Building Set features some of the most familiar and essential Tinkertoy parts, including spools, rods, flags, washers, end caps, and more. All of the pieces are made of plastic so that they easily snap together and stay together during play. Some of the pieces are also bendable to allow kids to build all sorts of shapes. The set comes with a colorful instruction sheet that features building tips and ideas. 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 this building set engages kids in classic Tinkertoy play with a modern look. While the colorful guide gives kids ideas for what they can build, this set is really all about imaginative building. Preschoolers can build their own unique creations, while also building fine motor skills as they play.
