Growing up I can remember playing with Lincoln Logs and now as an adult I'm happy to see that they are still available. This set comes with 83 pieces including a cowboy and a horse and is great for beginners or to add on to an additional set. My two boys ages 3 and 5 love using their imagination as they build with the logs. They have brought out their other farm animals and enjoy building fences out of the logs to keep their animals protected.
I love seeing my kids play with the same toys that I played with as a child, it brings back wonderful memories. I was happy to see Lincoln Logs are still made out of durable real wood.
I received this product for review. All opinions are my own personal and honest thoughts.
I love laying out all the Lincoln Logs and just letting my kids play together. As a mom there is nothing better then having my kids play together using their imaginations. My kids vary in age as well , 11, 4, 2. It doesn't matter what your age is Lincoln Logs are a tried and true toy that everyone loves. I love that they are still made of wood. They stand up to a young child or a adult foot, yes I've stepped on many logs in my life. They don't stand up very well to the bite of a puppy who loves to chew however :) Just be quicker then the dog and she won't get away with your toy.
As someone who also grew up on Lincoln logs it's nice to know that they really haven't changed over the years. I love that a toy I grew up playing with, is the same toy my kids will grow up playing with.
For [$$], I gave my grandson about [$$] worth of logs, which probably cost about [$$] to mill and package at most. Fortunately Target [..]. If there had been a negative number for "value," I would have used it. The box is large and comes with each sized log and roof piece packaged separately inside--lots of plastic. It almost fills the box. After you throw out the packaging, you have fewer than 2 inches of logs in a box over a foot tall and about 9 inches in circumference. Frankly, I was embarrassed to give it to him for his birthday.
My grandson loves blocks, so I hope he'll like this as well, but I'd buy the cheaper pseudo-lincoln logs if I were you. If he likes them well enough, I certainly will in the future. About three times as many logs cost half as much money. This is a rip-off aimed at people like me who remember kids playing with them years ago.
