    So we purchased a set of Lincoln Logs as a Christmas present, it is so sad to see even these are now made in The United States of China.....

    Thans Walmart...

    How is that the fault of WalMart? Lincoln Logs[​IMG] are distributed by K'NEX L.P. The fact that WalMart sells them does not mean that WalMart, who doesn't manufacture anything has anything to do with where they are made.

    Walmart does manufacture things an has a reputation for dictating price an manufacturing location of things they sell that others manufacture. Dont know if this is true of Lincoln logs though.

    I was always perplexed, as a kid, because there wasn't a proper roofing system, or else, I just didn't know how to work the logs. I could always build the walls, but the roof just didn't happen.

    I had no problem with the roof, you just had to put them at a slant. [​IMG]

    Quote:Didn't your set have the triangular roof supports and the green flat pieces to make the roof? I can't remember how young I was when my parents bought me my large set of Lincoln Logs, but I do recall Dad sitting on the floor helping me to build several "Ponderosa-style" cabins that were practically mansions for my dolls. Mom used to tell him those were supposed to be my toys [​IMG] along with all the Legos.

    I wanted Lincoln Logs so bad as a kid, my dad said they were too basic. I did have tinker toys and I bought my own legos, back when you could by a big box from the sears catalog and it was just a box of parts, you decided what they made.

    Quote:I'm kind of surprised. My whole family would have those things spread from one end of the living room to the other and we could build some awesome things including the roofing systems.

    Can I do that with a coop? Nope.

    I remember the green slats but I can't remember any triangles. At 5 years old, I guess I couldn't figure it out, or noone explained it to me.
