The Tinker Toy Construction Set

This term the extension group had to chose a number between 1 and 20 and then Mrs Tele'a gave us a toy to research about the number I chose was 15 and the toy that I got was The Tinkertoy Construction Set.

The Tinkertoy Construction Set is a toy for children 5 and older. It was created in 1914. Charles Pajeau is the creator of the tinkertoy. It has at least 66 parts in it. Charles Pajeau had the inspiration to make the Tinker Toy because he saw children playing with pencils sticks and empty spools of thread and he also wanted to encourage children to use their imagination.


  1. Kia Ora Brooklyn,

    I like how your writing was informative. What you could add to this is tell us what the toy does.

    Next time re-read your work to make sure your punctuation is correct. They were minor but still noticable.

  2. Hi Brooklyn,
    I have never played with Tinker Toy Construction Set. You had some mistakes in there, maybe you could fix it up later. Anyway, I had to research the invention of a teddy bear which was really easy. I can't wait to read more interesting post Brooklyn. Keep up the great work!
