TINKERTOY  Essentials Value Set for creative thinking and play for children.


I am sure you probably remember playing with TINKERTOY as a kid. I know when I was growing up they were one of the most popular toys around. Did you know they have been around for over 100 years? They were created in 1913 by Charles Pajeau, who was inspired by children playing with empty spools of thread and pencils. TINKERTOY has a collection of sets available which include:

  • Wild Wheels Building Set.
  • 30 Model Super Building Set.
  • 65 Piece Essentials Value Set.
  • Pink Building Set.
  • Transit Building Set.
  • 100 Piece Essentials Value Set
  • 150 Piece Essentials Value Set.

I remember playing with TINKERTOY when I was a child and then playing with them with my children, and now I play with them with my grandchildren. In my opinion they are a traditional toy that has been passed down from generation to generation.

Of course over time they have changed a bit. They have recently been redesigned so the pieces snap together and stay together which provides longer-lasting play, without the frustration of them coming apart. TINKERTOY nurtures creative thinking, problem-solving skills and assists in developing fine motor skills for children. Additionally, the building sets can be combined because the spools, rods, flags, washers, end caps and more are interchangeable for more fun. TINKERTOY building sets are made in America. They are a perfect building set for ages three and up.


I am excited to share an incredible giveaway for TINKERTOY 150 Piece Essentials Value Set! The set includes:

  • Instruction sheet with building tips and ideas.
  • 150 essential TINKERTOY pieces including; spools, rods, flags, washers, end caps, and more.

150 Piece Essentials Value Set is a fantastic set that is ideal for all skill levels. There are 16 building ideas in the set. The pieces snap together, stay together, and bendable rods assist in ease of building for younger children.


TINKERTOY building sets would make terrific gifts for creative children ages three and up. To learn more about TINKERTOY visit the website. You can also enter to win TINKERTOY 150 Piece Essentials Value Set below.
