Insipred by @Jjpayne's recent question about collecting Hot Wheels or similar type collector cars, I set out to my parent's house shortly after answering Jj's question to dig through old mementos in my parent's attic & basement.
Among other sentimental items, I found containers of Junior & Jumbo Tinkertoys
along with a box of Giant Tinkertoys!
Do any of you remember these?
Have you ever played with them?
What did you have or do you still own?
Playing with the Giant Tinkertoys was something I remember enjoying a lot. Those were also wonderful bonding moments with my dad who showed me numerous ways to build structures with the giant set.
Meanwhile, my brothers each built whatever comes out of their imaginations with the small pieces that they'd carefully display on their desks to admire before they went to sleep.
Whatever it is that my dad & I built together would stay out in the backyard because in was too big to have inside.
