The Bridge Street Toys Girder and Panel building sets consist of realistic HO scale parts that allow children
to create structures that are built the same way that real buildings are designed and built. These construction
toy sets are powerful tools for teaching children the basic principles of designing buildings and bridges. The
Bridge Street Toy building sets are great for science fair projects.
Many of today’s architects and engineers were inspired by the Girder and Panel building sets that they played
with as children from the 1960s and the1970s. The toy continues to have a following as indicated by the
sheer number of collector websites devoted to the original. Baby boomer parents who grew up with the sets
want to now share the joy they experienced as children with their own kids.
“It is a good feeling to know that we have brought back such a well loved toy! We started the company
because these toys were my favorite growing up and I was disappointed when I couldn’t find them for my
kids to play with. I credit my career choice (engineering) to having played with and loved these toys as a
kid. They sparked my imagination and got me interested in building and science,” said Paul Flack, President
of Bridge Street Toys, “We will continue to bring new versions of the toys to market and take pride in working
hard to bring high-quality, educational toys to the marketplace.”
