Experience the History of Life With Lincoln Logs
Let little engineers make their own little wooden town with the Lincoln Logs Collector’s Editions. Inspired by the life-time village of the Pilgrims, the Lincoln Logs Collector’s Editions bring to life the early years of America. With a sturdy, durable, and realistic wooden frame, the Lincoln Logs Collector’s Editions provide hours of play and fun. Young children and even young adults will enjoy playing with this wooden toy, as well as constructing their very own little village.
Building on the tradition of the “Pilgrim” lifestyle, the Lincoln Logs Collector’s Editions include a complete set of tools, including a hammer, a chisel, a carpenter’s square, and a level. The set includes eight individual wooden logs, four double-notched logs, and one single-sided triple-notched log. Young children will have fun building log houses and Cabin Houses. Adults will enjoy using their tools to make furniture and dollhouses. And, most children will delight in using the fine paper that comes included in the set, to trace letters, numbers, and words.
Following a long life spent on the cabin beds of the Pilgrims, these toys are now used to recreate life on the frontier. Life is tough and survival skills learned in this toy make good teaching tools for the imagination. Children learn valuable lessons about patience, hard work, and discipline. They also gain insight into how children develop respect for nature, and they see the need for cooperation in order to survive.
After all, logger-made villages were not just for young children. While working in the early settlements, pioneers learned that each person must build or repair a small shelter in order to survive. They discovered that the layout of a home would greatly impact a family’s daily lives, so they designed the Lincoln Logs Collector’s Editions to replicate life in the early American colonies.
In addition to being made of fine wood, Lincoln Logs is machine washable and comes with a carrying case and rubber mat. The rubber mat keeps children from sliding around on the smooth wooden logs. To clean the wooden logs, simply use a garden hose and water them carefully. Dry them on a wood drying stand before storing them in a cedar chest. Or, store them in an old wagon wheelbarrow, which has a handle on the top so that it will keep them from tipping over. Place the wheelbarrow next to a sturdy shelf in the garage.
These products allow parents to relive their childhood memories and travel back in time. As children grow older, these villages allow them to visit their friends and family members who have also grown up using these unique timbers. Now you can relive your own life and share fond memories with your children by purchasing one of the Lincoln Logs Collector’s Editions.
