History and FUN FACTS!

Lincoln Logs were the creation of John Lloyd Wright, the son of famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

Inspired on a 1916 trip to Tokyo, Japan where his father was building the Imperial Hotel, the young Mr. Wright watched workers build the structure with the revolutionary technique of interlocking beams.

Named after President Abraham Lincoln, the original sales slogan was "Interesting playthings typifying the spirit of America."

Since their introduction, Lincoln Logs have sold more than 100 million sets worldwide.

The original Lincoln Logs were made of redwood.

Lincoln Logs reached their height of success with the Davy Crockett craze of the 1950's.
