I received the Lincoln Logs Redfield Ranch in order to facilitate my review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I can remember spending literally hours as a child playing with my Lincoln Logs. I don’t recall which one it was, but I do know that they were a Christmas gift (there’s photo evidence to help my memory). The rest of that day and many days into the future I would lay on the floor, carefully fitting the logs into dozens of different patterns.
Lincoln Logs were a tradition that I knew I wanted to share with Bubbles. They inspire creativity, building skills, and imagination, which are great elements for playtime. Plus it was something I could play with her that I already knew I enjoyed.
Lincoln Logs Redfield Ranch
I recently learned that K’NEX had released some new Lincoln Log sets – like the Lincoln Logs Redfield Ranch (available exclusively at Toys ‘R Us). There 124 of the same classic wooden logs that I played with, plus a few updated additions like plastic roofs and window and door inserts. The Redfield Ranch also has two figurines that a ranch wouldn’t be complete without: a cowboy and a horse.
The Lincoln Logs Redfield Ranch set is recommended for ages 3 and up so I thought it would be appropriate for Bubbles as a starting set. She has already had as much fun playing with them as I did when I was young. Fortunately Daddy was a fan growing up of Lincoln Logs, too, so she has a second architect she can play with.
There are included step-by-step instructions for different building options. You can easily just use the “log” container that the Lincoln Logs come in as a guide for creating the house. And of course half the fun of any construction set is coming up with your own designs!
