TinkerToys for a new generation of fun!

I remember the day my mom brought home a barrel of TinkerToys for my sister and I to play with. We were older than the Booper and we looked at my mom like she was crazy. I remember thinking, "Why does mom want us to play with those baby toys." it was funny how fast those thoughts changed. My sister and I played with the wooden TinkerToys all the time. We had fun building with the sticks and spools making towers or trying to see what awesome shapes we could construct.A classic since 1913, TinkerToy is new and improved for the new generation. When I was offered this review I was excited for the Booper to have the chance to play with the same toys I loved as a child. 
I was given these toys free for the purpose of review, all views and opinions are my own honest evaluations.

When our TinkerToy set arrived the TinkerToys looked different from what I remembered playing with as a little girl. TinkerToy is now made from plastic and will snap together easily, plus there are flexible pieces so you can build all kinds of new shapes! 

Made in the USA TinkerToy is for children ages 3 and up, perfect for the Booper. We received the 65 piece Essentials Value Set, but they offer several different construction sets to choose from. The Essentials set has been lots of fun, the Booper has built several fun things to play with. He likes having my husband or I to build something from the instructions so he can play with it. As you can see from the pictures TinkerToy are easy for him to manipulate with his small hands and he's able to put them back together on his own. The Booper's favorite thing to build is anything that moves. We constructed this little merry go round and he was pretending the blue pieces were kids riding on it. 
Watch our TinkerToy set  in action and see how the Boop likes to play! 



This is a fun and versatile set that works well for boys and girls, 3 years and up. I would recommend these sets because I love toys that spark imagination. TinkerToy has that unique ability to cross over in your child's play time and I end up finding the Booper's set mixed in with his cars and his dinosaurs as he constructs things to go with other toys. Love that about TinkerToy!

    1. Yep. Building toys keep kids occupied for hours. When I have kids for respite there are times I need something on hand to keep them busy.
