Lincoln Logs turns 100!

K’NEX Brands, the only US construction toy company focused on Building Worlds Kids Love®, is excited to celebrate the 100th birthday of LINCOLN LOGS in 2016!

Developed in 1916 by John Lloyd Wright, the son of famous American architect Frank Lloyd Wright, LINCOLN LOGS has been entertaining children for 100 years. Licensed by Hasbro, LINCOLN LOGS, a brand known for quality and durability has become more than just a toy…it’s an authentic piece of Americana! In 2015, in anticipation of the centennial, production of the iconic log building toy was brought back to the United States for the first time in nearly 60 years!

Beloved for generations, playing with LINCOLN LOGS has become a rite of passage. If you haven’t played with a LINCOLN LOGS building set in a while the smell of the real, authentic wood once the tin is opened is guaranteed to bring back memories! K’NEX recently brought 2 generations of fans together for a LINCOLN LOGS play date at the Wiley Christian Retirement Community in Marlton, NJ. The residents and children had a blast building together and it was all captured on film! The video can be viewed on the official LINCOLN LOGS Facebook page and has captured nearly 200,000 views on YouTube in less than 2 weeks!

The 2016 made in the USA LINCOLN LOGS line includes the 100th Anniversary Tin, Collector’s Edition Village, Country Meadow Cottage, Forge Mill Cabin and more!

LINCOLN LOGS Building Sets are available NOW on knex.com and at all major toy retailers.
