Weekly Gift Idea: Lincoln Logs
When I Was a Kid, I Wanted Lincoln Logs
When I was a little boy, one of the many things I coveted was Lincoln Logs. After some years of waiting, as I remember, I did receive a minimum set. When we had no Lincoln Logs, we used kindling wood to build our log cabins, our corrals, and our fences. If we could round up a few toy animals, we put them in the corral. I remember our Lincoln logs set was really too small so we supplemented our structures with kindling wood.
Lincoln logs are still a great gift for children age 3 and older. I think that I’m going to buy a set of Lincoln Logs so that when my little great grandson and his sister come over to the house, they can build a log cabin. I always have lots of toys here for them to play with, especially toy cars. I’ll have to get a few toy animals to go up the Lincoln Logs. Sounds like fun to me! (Pic: My kindergarten class. I’m front center on left of the kid (my friend Larry) with the goggles.)
WARNING: Read Reviews on any log set. Some are crap! The logs and roof slats are not like the original and there are too few pieces and the wrong size to build anything. You don’t even get what you pay for!

“This set is a must-have! There are actually enough pieces to get creative.”
“My children both started playing with this as soon as it arrived and it became a fortress for Barbies, Military guys and Littlest Pet Shop alike. It was nice because it was a lot of fun for them and they were playing together with no modern technology. . This would make an excellent addition to any Lincoln Log collection and would make a wonderful gift this holiday season.”
