Self-styled “tinkerer” Charles Pajeau and his partner Robert Pettit invented Tinker Toys in 1913. The toy’s signature “hub and stick” parts came out of Pajeau’s experience watching children play with pencils and empty spools of thread. The Junior Tinkertoy set was a smaller alternative to the classic Wonder Builder.
