    Yes and if you had Tinker Toys it's a pretty sure bet you had Lincoln Logs too.

    Yep, I loved playing with Tinkertoys as a kid, and Lincoln Logs too. My siblings and I would spend hours playing and building things with those classic toys. Kids in my generation had to use their imaginations to entertain themselves, and it was great!

    Oh YEAH!!! I specifically remember those Tinker Toys were among my favorites when I was a small boy! Buildings, vehicles, rocket ships, animals...there was no limit to what you could build with those things.

    They were super popular when I was a kid there was no such thing as legos than. I used to build a lot of things with two sets of them.

    Most definitely. I loved my tinkertoys when I was a kid. Being the late 50's-early 60's I didn't have as many options with mine and all the parts were wood.

    I also had 'Reliable Easylock Unbreakable Bricks' that came in a large round tube. Believe it or not I still have the tube but keep papers in it now.

    When I was a kid we had them and they were lots of fun and so were erector sets, do they even sell them any more?

    I could play for hours with a set of Jacks and loved marbles. A simple rubber ball gave me hours of fun.
