LINCOLN LOGS have been around for generations. Did you know they were invented 99 years ago? These iconic wooden building toys have been inspiring creativity for almost an entire century and still top children’s holiday Wish Lists.
I remember building log cabins out of Lincoln Logs that belonged to my dad when he was a little boy. My grandmother had saved his toys! Today, I enjoy spending time playing Lincoln Logs with my own children. Lincoln Logs are a classic that appeals to kids young and old. We received a variety of toys from the K’NEX family for our review and giveaway.
The Collectors Edition Village Lincoln Log set is one of the biggest sets EVER! This set is 100% made in the USA with REAL WOOD and includes 327 LINCOLN LOGS® pieces. I really like that it comes packaged in a large, collectible tin. The tin makes it easy to clean-up our Lincoln Logs and provides convenient storage.
When we first opened the Collectors Edition tin and started taking out the Lincoln Logs, the pieces just kept coming and coming. I thought it was a never-ending container! You really get quite a wonderful set, and can build everything in the village (instructions included) or build whatever your imagination can dream up.
Kids younger than 5 years old will need assistance when it comes to stacking the Lincoln Logs to build a structure. I still have to help my 6-year-old a little bit, but he’s getting the hang of how to stack and build with them the more we play. Older kids (ages 8 and up) will get the hang of building in no time. You can find even more building ideas sheets online.
The Lincoln Logs 100th Anniversary Set recently won 2 Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Awards: The Best Toy of 2015–Gold, and the Blue Chip.
Lincoln Logs can be found on Facebook and Twitter.
If you have older kids who love to build, try one of the top K’NEX holiday picks this year: K’NEX Double Doom Roller Coaster Building Set. It’s recommended for ages 9 and up. Build with 891 K’NEX pieces including classic rods, classic connectors, and track that build a model over 3 feet high! With the motorized action, your 2 coaster cars will go on a twisting and turning ride.
My 11-year-old hasn’t had the chance to try building this one yet. We are waiting for the school holiday break so he can spend hours constructing this challenging set. It will give him something fun to do while school is out. There are online building instructions for a second coaster to build, once you master the first one! K’NEX can be found on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and YouTube.
Buy Lincoln Logs and K’NEX in nationwide retailers including Walmart and Toys R Us. Shop online at KNEX.com and Amazon.

i learned that Non-battery operated K’NEX pieces can be easily cleaned with soap and water. Keep soap & water away from all motors, sound modules and any other parts using batteries.
