1920’s Tinker Toy Wonder Builder construction set
Inspired by watching children play with pencils, sticks and empty spools of thread, Charles Pajeau and Robert Petit created Tinker Toys in 1914. Tinker Toys originally sold for 60¢ and were first called the “Thousand Wonder Builder.”
The distinctive mailing tube package was selected to help reduce shipping costs. The back of the package included an address label with a space for postage.
This is definitely an early Tinkertoy set with the copyright on the box being 1929. The sticks and spools are predominantly natural wood, with a few colourful sticks and red spools which would have been added later as the red spools were only introduced in the 30’s and the colourful sticks in the 50’s.
Original box, incomplete set, but more than enough parts to create magical constructions!
