    Part of the big three of vintage building toys. Big four if you include Erector sets. Lego and Lincoln Logs would be the others.
    This is Tinker Toys Starter Set N0. 116. Looks to be from the 1970s as it has some plastic pieces. A truly vintage set would be all wooden pieces.
    I will be on the lookout for an older set. In the meantime it is on display in my china cabinet.

      Ooooh boy, I remember playing with these sets. I had the 1960s all wooden Tinker Toys. I loved the Lincoln Logs!

      Fortappace was wondering if you tried to email me I haven't heard from you.

      Tinkertoys and Lincoln Logs were a regular staple from Santa on Christmas morning when I was a kid. I think we got a new sets almost every year. Mainly, because we would lose or break so many throughout the year.

      I did Caperkid. Perhaps I set off your spam blocker. I'll try it again.

      Thank you very much Scott. I was pretty good about keeping mine together but they are gone now.

      Thank you very much Thomas. I used to think the pointy pieces were ray guns.
