We had them when we were growing up and I was very excited when a friend of mine was able to sell a ton of them to me for a great price! Tinker Toy 200-piece Plastic Construction Set's are a classic toy that is appropriate for all ages! The sets consist of dowels, wheels, t-connectors and a few other bits and pieces. The pieces connect together in various ways to create just about anything your child can imagine! Tinker Toy 200-piece Plastic Construction Set's are great for teaching pattern, color recognition, sorting and for older children can be used to teach formulas (area, perimeter and so on), scale and much more. Not to mention creativity, hand-eye coordination, and fine and gross motor skills. Tinker Toys truly are one of the best toys ever created!
We have the plastic set because it is larger and easier for my little one to manipulate. Well, that and it happened to be the one my friend had for that great price. We will probably ask for the wooden set for Christmas in a few years as I am just partial to wooden toys.
Busy being creative!
Even the containers are useful. Nothing better than a little boy and his drums!
