Roy Toys?

I had heard of Lincoln Logs building Toys as I have some of their metal toy soldiers and civilians.  Roy Toys however were a  new company to me, thanks to a surprise kind family gift for Christmas.

I  like the retro packaging, I like the simple product and the story behind its creation and remarkable family revival.

B.P.S. this log cabin was apparently sourced through quirky British supplier Labour and Wait in London – they have some still reduced in their sale.

  1. Really great looking log cabin. I have used wooden blocks with 54mm in a game successfully, reminiscent of H G Wells floor games. They have a please toy vibe to them as do your wonderful log cabin pictures.

    1. It was that Little Wars retro look that appealed to me when I was shown pictures of them months ago. Then the various cabins appeared as surprises on Christmas Day! I really like the family back story, the retention of the packaging style, the sustainable forestry thing. Pure Childhood Americana.

  2. I had many Lincoln Logs as a child and sometimes used them as terrain with my green army men. Have lately used Jenga blocks, but these would go perfectly for my Revolutionary War plastics. If I can get my bosses to allow wargaming in the library again, I may pick some up.
