Thanks to K’NEX, my youngest son received a Tinkertoy Transit Building Set that he now plays with nearly every single day. His favorite thing to build is the windmill, but he also likes to build the train as well as making things with the eyes. He thought it was absolutely hilarious when he put eyes on the windmill. He’s weird (gets it from his dad). He has generally been able to play with this toy completely on his own although he has needed help a few times separating pieces. My favorite part is that it comes in a durable box!

The Tinkertoy Transit Building Set is available at retailers nationwide as well as online at for around $44 (you can buy it now on Amazon for only $29.99!). If you have a child who has a big imagination and loves to pretend play and build things, this toy set will not disappoint!

    I didn’t realize that tinker toys had gotten to be so cool… we still have the hand me down ones here at the house that the boys play with, and honestly, they only ever seem to lean toward legos, but maybe a few sets of these would liven things up…they are fantastic!
