Classic Fun Reinvented - K'Nex Tinkertoy Transit Building Set Review

I remember playing with the classic wooden Tinkertoys when I was a kid... Boy have they come a long way since then. And they are still just as fun as I remember! We were recently sent the Tinkertoy Transit Building Set to review and my boys can't get enough of them.

Product Description:
The Tinkertoy Transit Building Set is designed to encourage young builders to play and learn. Builders ages 3+ can create a train, garage, bridge and more or accelerate their imagination with other ideas! The colorful guide provides a variety of ideas for all building skill levels.

The newly redesigned Tinkertoy pieces snap together and stay together for long-lasting play. You'll find the nostalgic Tinkertoy pieces you remember, plus unique parts such as bendable rods, wheels, and eyes, so your child can add personality to their creations along with an adorable buildable figure to encourage imaginative role play.

The Tinkertoy Transit set includes 150 durable, plastic pieces including spools, straight rods, bendable rods, wheels, eyes, two buildable figures and more! Comes in a durable box with lid for easy storage and portability.

  • Young builders can create a train, garage, bridge and more!
  • 150 durable, lightweight plastic pieces
  • Colorful pieces snap together and stay together for long-lasting play
  • 15 Easy-to-assemble ideas for all skill levels
  • Inspires imagination, play and learning
  • Ages 3+

Trevor has recently found a love for building so I knew that Tinkertoys would be perfect for him. Since they are designed for ages 3 and up, Tinkertoys are super easy to snap together for even the youngest builders. The bendable rods and plastic figures allow your kids imagination to soar and they're just so much fun!

We've created an airplane, a pinwheel, a ladder, a garage, and so much more. They're easy to take apart and put back together over and over again and the possibilities are endless.

I personally love the durable plastic Tinkertoys compared to the classic wooden ones. It's so much easier to create a variety of different creations, plus they're safer for kids too. Of course the durable storage box is definitely an added bonus!

You can purchase the newly redesigned Tinkertoy Transit Building Set for a suggested retail price of $43.99.

Very cute! I love that it is open-ended and kids can create all sorts of things. Do you know where the toy is made (crossing my fingers for USA).

I was never lucky enough to play with this kind of toy when I was a kid but it looks like great fun. In fact, I am getting to try out lots of new toys by playing with my children, which is fantastic

I would love to get this for my 5 year old son. It would keep him busy!
