#Giveaway #RC Celebrating The 100th Anniversary Of The TinkerToy With The TinkerToy 100 Piece Essentials Building Set CLOSED!

I can remember many toys that I played with as a kid, and there are many that are still around today. The ones that I find that I can share with my kids, I find to be just as fun to introduce and share with my kids just as if I was playing with them all over again like when I was little. Like most parents, I love finding toys that help promote my children’s creativity, and just like my parents found when I was little, TinkerToy are the perfect play sets to get your child that help promote that creativity! Whats more is, not only are TinkerToys a toy that I had when I was little that I can share with my own kids, but they are a toy that my own parents loved being able to share with me, because they were a toy that my parents also had when they were kids. It is amazing to think that the amazing TinkerToys has been around for 100 years, but it is true, and since they are celebrating their 100th Anniversary, they sent me their amazing TinkerToy 100 Piece Essentials Buidling set to review!

Now one thing that I know I can appreciate and that I know my parents will also appreciate is that, yes the TinkerToy is still around, but there have been many improvements done which opens the door for so many other creative building possibilities for my kids when they play with them. Like the fact that the rods are not made of wood, and that they can bend, so that the kids can shape them to make all of the fun items that are in the instructions that come with this set as well as whatever else my kids minds can come up with. I also love that with all of the pieces, it does leave the door for the possibilities on what they can and will create, wide open. When my kids build with TinkerToys they gain improved motor skills, the joy and satisfaction they get from creating something of their own, social skills when they build with each other as well as when they build with their friends, language skills for when they come to us to explain to us what they have built, and most important of all, a stronger imagination from creating their own projects! I love TinkerToys and I love that even after 100 years, they are still a favorite toy to share with the kids in my family! Well, since TinkerToy is celebrating their 100th Anniversary, they would like to give one of my amazing readers their own TinkerToy 100 Piece Essentials Building Set to help celebrate 100 years of creative fun!

    It all began one evening when Joel Glickman was playing with straws. That's right… straws! While sitting at a crowded, noisy wedding Joel began tinkering with some straws and thinking about the possibilities. This dabbling, followed by some innovative product engineering, led to the very popular Rod and Connector building system now available throughout the world.
