Lincoln Logs Horseshoe Hill Station

When I was growing up I loved going to my neighbor Drew's house to play. He was a great friend and had all the fun toys to play with including Lincoln Logs. I remember spending hours with him building all sorts of houses and barns etc. with Lincoln Logs. So I was thrilled when K'NEX asked me to review the new Lincoln Logs Horseshoe Hill Station  with my boys.
Lincoln Logs have been around a long time, since 1916. Architect Frank Lloyd Wright's son John was inspired by his father's work on the Tokyo Imperial Hotel and wanted to build a set that kids could use to construct their own buildings and Lincoln Logs were born.

My little guy Josh was so excited when the Horseshoe Hill Station arrived and couldn't wait to open it and start building. This particular Lincoln Log set has 83 pieces and includes a cowboy and horse too.

Here is the full description of the Horseshoe Hill Station from K'Nex:  Saddle up to the LINCOLN LOGS Horseshoe Hill Station!  This building set features 83 pieces including real wood logs, a cowboy, a horse, a roof and a door. Set also comes with colorful, step-by-step building instructions. When playtime is over, put the parts back into the handy storage container for a quick and easy clean-up. Suggested retail price is $27.99. Ages 3+. Available now on knex.com, Walmart.com, Target.com, TRU.com, Amazon.com and at toy retailers nationwide. 

Josh has spent hours playing with this set both by himself and with the entire family. I recommend the Lincoln Logs Horseshoe Hill Station set for several reasons which I will list below:

1. This set is made of very durable pieces and will last a lifetime.

2. The box indicates this set is intended for children ages 3+ and I found it to be true. Josh is four years old and was easily able to play with and enjoy this set.

3. Lincoln Logs engage children in using their hands for picking up the pieces, grasping etc. These skills are essential for developing fine motor skills they need for writing, cutting, and drawing in school.

4. Lincoln Logs inspire creative play in children.

5. The $27.99 price for the Lincoln Logs Horseshoe Hill Station is very reasonable.

The Horseshoe Hill Station set we received has found a spot in Josh's toy closet next to his favorite Cars Monopoly game. When he puts a toy in the toy closet it's one he really likes and it's a keeper! Josh and I both give the Horseshoe Hill Station a 5 star rating.

Disclosure: I received the aforementioned  product to facilitate my review. I was not required to write a positive review and my opinions remain my own.
