Today’s Mind Bender was about Tinker Toys! Wow, what a favorite of everyone in the studio. We talked about some fascinating Tinker Toy Trivia:

  • Did you know the toy debuted in 1914?
  • Did you know it was not well received at the time?
  • Did you know it was invented by a stonemason after watching kids play with sticks and spools?
  • To make the toy more popular the inventor hired little people to dress as elves and play with Tinker Toys in a department store window.

What “old” toys did you buy for YOUR kids — or plan to buy THIS YEAR for your kids or grandkids?
