"Tinkertoys -- the easy building system for little people with big imaginations." This original Tinkertoy Big Builder System dates to 1986 and has 111 pieces. The original set came with 112 pieces. A few of the wooden rods that were missing from this set were added from another set from the same era. The only thing missing is 1 flat yellow square panel.

The heavy cardboard tube is in good shape, although the top where the metal cap goes on is frayed. And although it fits well, the red metal lid is also a bit dented and banged up. There is also an instruction booklet in fair shape - it's been completely pulled apart, some pages are missing and some are torn. However, a bit of tape would go a long way to making usable.

Here's what's included in the set:

16 smooth lacquered wooden spools
1 square panel
1 Tinkertoy character
20 connectors
2 small bases
4 wheels
4 caps
4 swivels
2 medium bases
4 washers
4 L bearings
2 triangle panels
1 large base

46 wooden rods:
-14 yellow
-12 red
-12 blue
-4 light green (one has a ding on the end but is still completely functional)
-4 purple
