Toys

  • Construction set – a collection of separate pieces that can be joined together to create models. Popular models to make include cars, spaceships, and houses. The things that are built are sometimes used as toys once completed, but generally speaking, the object is to build things of one’s own design, and old models often are broken up and the pieces reused in new models.
