Is there a difference? Are they both wood? Do your kids like them? At what age?

Thanks!

I don't know what fiddlesticks are, but we gave dd tinker toys last Christmas and she still loves them now at just over 3 yo.

We just discovered tinkertoys right before ds turned 4 - he absolutely loves them! I have never seen or heard of fiddlesticks. How are they different than tinkertoys?

Dd's friend has tinker toys AND fiddlesticks. The ONLY difference that I could see was tinker toys comes in a "Quaker Oatmeal" syle can and the fiddlesticks were in a canvas bag. His mom said they have the same amount in each and are interchangeable....Yep they are both wooden.
