    We were lucky enough to receive one of new 188 pc TinkerToy Big Top Building sets. They are designed for children three and up, and give kids all they need to create tons of different adventures. The set we received has a circus theme and comes with instructions to build everything from a Ferris Wheel to an elephant. There's even a lion and tamer! The instructions are simple to follow but younger children will need some assistance. The blocks are just the right size for little fingers to slide together. The pieces are easy to snap together and don't fall apart once assembled. So once they have them together, its easy for them to play pretend for hours at a time. They can make all kids of different scenes and since there are plenty of pieces, even if you lose a few you can still play.

    I can't recommend any toy higher than these Tinker Toys. It was the most well spent money. My grandsons (5 & 7) play with this for hours not only following the directions for the projects, but also doing extremely creative free play designing their own projects. The 5 yo is a 'Bob the Builder' little guy and he follows the 'blueprint' (the project direction sheet inside the box). At this point, I've now bought 3 different sets and I couldn't be happier. Prior to buying the first set, I was a bit hesitant being they were plastic, versus, the wooden ones that I grew up with. The huge advantage of the plastic over the wood is that they have connection pieces that are made to be flexible. (not like a hard plastic that snaps and breaks, but more soft and flexable) It opens up a world of building possibilities. I consider these plastic Tinker Toys a gigantic improvement over the wooden Tinker Toys. Knex has done a wonderful improvement with Tinker Toys. There's quality in the pieces. My only wish is they'd make a 500 piece box of pieces. With two boys playing at the same time, they're always hunting for more parts to make their imaginative creations.

    My 4-year old grandson loves to build things with his Tinkertoys but frequently runs out of pieces so I bought him an additional building set. Now he can finally complete his projects!

    The box was bigger than I expected and my six year old really enjoys building new things with it. The box is also great for toy storage when he's not playing with it.

    I bought these for my grandchildren (ages 2 1/2 & 6) to play with when we were all together for Thanksgiving. They both had a great time creating imaginary people, a ferris wheel, a cart, and animals. We all enjoyed playing together with this colorful and unique building set.
