Lincoln Log Timbers


description

Square cross-section brown wooden logs with cut outs to allow crossing at the corners. Red triangular gables fit into the grooved tops of special logs and the green horizontal roof slats are supported from the protruding end of this log. There is also a chimney.

I don't know why Lincoln produced this set when they also made Lincoln Logs, which differ primarily through having a circular cross-section. Perhaps they were intended to compete with American Logs.
