There are famous toys, and then there are legendary toys. Some toys stand the test of time, becoming popular with generations of children, while others are just fondly remembered. Then there are toys that literally “changed the game” and had a profound effect not just on the children who played with the toys, but America as a whole. Erector sets are one of those legendary toys.
First introduced exactly 100 years ago, Erector sets quickly became the most popular construction toy in the United States. Each Erector set contained metal beams with regular rows of holes for assembly with nuts and bolts. They also contained wheels, gears, pulleys and – most importantly – small electric motors. For a young country full of even younger inventors, engineers and mechanics, Erector sets were just the type of open-ended, “do it yourself” toy that helped instill and nurture some of the ingenuity and creativity that helped build modern America during the 20th century.
