In this age of technology there aren’t many toys, play sets, etc. that are able to stand the test of time. I think it’s safe to say, with almost 100 years of market time under their belt, Lincoln Logs are here to stay and with good reason.
Lincoln Logs appeal to my children’s imagination and desire for creative play. Made of 100% real wood, each log has a notch which allows for connection when building. My children can use their imaginations and come up with a creation of their own, or follow direction to make the ultimate log cabin.

There are lots of fun Lincoln Logs sets on the market today all which work together, but the newest one we got the chance to check out was the Lincoln Logs: Redfield Ranch #00861.
Lincoln Logs: Redfield Ranch comes in a newly designed and collectible storage container. The mom in me loves sets which include storage, as this makes clean up not just more convenient for me, but my children as well.
Within the storage barrel you’ll find 124 real wood logs plus colorful figures and other building accessories. You’re also supplied with step-by-step instructions for building a ranch complete with a horse and cowboy figure. This set was simple to build and a lot of fun for the kids to play with, during construction, and after.
Lincoln Logs, part of the K’NEX family, do not splinter and help improve fine motor skills, cogitative skills, creativity and more. They are simple enough for little hands to utilize and still appealing enough to occupy older children. I, myself, enjoy sitting down with my kids and figuring out alternative ways to create cabins, ranches, etc. And the accessories like figures, hay bails, water troffs, windows and more give each creation real life finishing touches kids can be proud of.
