Who doesn't have fond childhood memories of playing with Tinkertoy construction sets? Originally produced in 1914, they've been a household name ever since. The perfect gift for anyone who spends time in an office, this unique kit is intended for adults who can appreciate the simple joys of Hasbro's landmark toy, as well as the witty, urbane text of the 32 page book inside. The Tinkertoy pieces themselves are elegant reproductions of the original, created in handsome cherry, mahogany, and ebony.
