Since 1913, kids have used these wooden spools to express their creativity in wonderful structures. This deluxe version of the classic kit is a must for the little one who loves to put it together and take it apart. It's got everything kids need to make windmills, animals—and even real cranes and elevators. The set comes with 48 rods, 20 spools, 8 connectors, 10 end caps, 6 couplings, 2 plastic tubes, 2 plastic Tinkertoy flags, 2 plastic rail holders, 2 plastic robot arms, 1 plastic face plate, 1 piece of string and a design guide. It's all packaged in the handy canister you remember. Best of all, all Tinkertoy kits are fully interchangeable, so you can add on more sets as your child grows.
