Building toys are always wrapped tight under my Christmas tree every year! It is the #1 on my children’s list every year~ and it is one of those gifts that actually continues to be played with long into the new year. Building toys have 5 qualities that make them an irresistible present for children!
We LOVE K’nex Lincoln Log, and Tinker Toys~ each have their own great features that stimulate my children in different ways! I love their varying difficulties, making them all great for the varied ages of my children. My favorite is by far…….Lincoln Logs! This classic construction set is made from REAL wood and is fueled by imagination alone! As a child, I remember playing with Lincoln Logs for hours so it’s sweet to connect with the kids over this childhood memory.
The Lincoln Log Collector’s Edition Homestead is an amazing addition to your building toy sets! This set includes 361 pieces of real wooden pieces that after pieced together will create an entire homestead complete with a covered wagon and horses! It is the BIGGEST Lincoln Log set available!
It allows for children to dream up anything they want~ with 361 pieces your child can build to their heart’s desires! Geared for ages 3+, even my little ones can enjoy time with the older siblings building together!
Tinker Toys is another great building set with pieces that snap together and stay together! Fun fact: Tinker Toys were created in 1913 after an inventor watched children play with thread spools and pencils. It’s so great to think a timeless toy does exist!
MADE IN THE USA!! Tinker Toys feature great bendable rods so no breakable pieces! I found the instructions super easy for younger builders to navigate, that even my stubborn 5 year old completed one from the book!
Luckily for all of us Moms……K’Nex, Tinker Toys, and Lincoln Logs are all available in local stores everywhere and on Amazon! Opt for 2 days shipping and have it here in time to make it under the Christmas tree!
BUY IT: Lincoln Logs Collector’s Edition Homestead is $99.99 online, but look for it in stores!
