      Our grandson was thrilled to get these for Christmas and set about building things right away. The logs seem to be well constructed and easy for the children to use.

        It's been a long time since I had my own set, but this sure looked like the ticket. Very high quality pieces. Would probably give them 5 stars, but haven't played with them myself, yet!

          My grandchildren had more fun building fences, log homes, etc. They were very creative and had to really think about what they were doing. Would like to have a larger container to hold all of the blocks.

              These are just like the ones i remember playing with as a kid! I am very happy with them, my kids loved them.

              As others have stated, when my wife and i set them up under the Christmas tree we played with them for about and hour and a half.

              Things that are great: nostalgia & American-made.

              Things that aren't so great: according to "mom" - too many pieces!

                Comments about Frontier Logs Play Set:

                I jumped on a December sale to get sets for gifts for 5 of my grandsons between the ages of 4 and 7. Their responses ranged from delight,(if they already had some) to puzzlement to 'That's not what we wanted!" This classic toy isn't hyped on TV, so most of them had never even seen 'Lincoln Logs'. However, I not only played with them for years as a child in the '50s, and had them for my 6 children, but also have extensive experience with them in preschool settings and know what great play value they have. I knew that once the doubters had some time with them they would be converted.

                Sure enough, within a few days the quoted (not what we wanted) grandson was happily building extensively with his brother by putting their two sets together. His wise mom waited several days to let the shine get off the techno toys before getting them out and getting them started building. She reported that aside from one other large scale building set, the logs were consuming most of their playtime and had put the rest of their presents in the shade. (And these boys got Kindle Fires for their main gift!)

                Even with my many good experiences with Duluth products and the many, many toys I have purchased from this site in the past, I was still blown away when the Frontier Log sets arrived. The size of the set was so much larger than I had imagined, at least half again as large as I had visualized. This is a really large set, with plenty of pieces for building anything they can imagine.

                When I opened the canister and checked out the pieces I was impressed again. The natural dyes impart beautiful, deep colors, and the waxed finish was satiny and delightful to look at and to handle. I have never handled building logs with such a satisfying feel and quality, and I've seen a lot of sets over the years. Most other sets have paler colors and a cheaper, drier look and feel.

                As far as the educational and play value of building logs, they are somewhat limited to the log cabin type of construction, compared to some other building sets, but that is made up for in the process of building. I can remember clearly the satisfaction I had as a child in designing and creating with Lincoln Logs. The interlocking corners and process of working in windows and doors involve spatial, planning, and math skills as the right length of logs are chosen and the criss cross method of connecting them result in a finished structure. Mixing the structures with other block constructions and play sets multiply the play value endlessly.

                My experience is that this is a toy that may sit for a time, but will be brought out over and over again through the years and continue to generate interest and play throughout the elementary school years. It's a classic and there is a reason why it's still around.

                      I was so excited to find this set of logs! Brought back so many childhood memories! My children are grown and some have children of their own, but we still enjoy sitting on the floor, playing with the little ones. Some of the pieces are too small for tiny children but the older ones LOVE them. It's all about family fun and so nice to leave the TV off!
