As a child one of my favorite toys was the Tinkertoy. I enjoyed endless hours of building and creating flowers, cars and other kid creations. Over the years this classic toy has changed from wood to plastic plus new pieces have been added so that children can continue to use their imaginations while creating till their hearts content! Fast forwarding many years later, my children are enjoying Tinkertoy as much as I did as a child.

With the Wild Wheels Building Set children can create all sorts of wheeled vehicles, a wheel barrel, a duck and much more! There are so many great features about this set:


~ All 76 pieces are made of a durable lightweight plastic.

~ The pieces are brightly colorful, which makes this set more attractive to children to want to play. 

~ Pieces snap together and stay together for long-lasting play.  I like how when you place the pieces together you can hear the snap sound so that children know that their pieces are together correctly or not. 

~ All pieces are made in the USA

~ The instructions provides a variety of ideas for all skill levels.

My kids really took to this set. Even though it is designed for ages 3 and up, my 2 year old was able to use the set easily. The Wild Wheels Building Set not only helps children use their imaginations but it helps children with their dexterity and fine motor skills as well.
