Construx

Introduction

Construx is a brand of building toys. These toys are made out of plastic. This brand was established by Fisher-Price in the year 1983. Construx generally has beam shaped pieces. These pieces have varying lengths. They can be snapped to a cubical connector to make large shapes. These shapes securely fit into each-other though no bolts or nuts are used. Flat surface assembly was possible due to panels. Even moving creations are possible in this set. You can fix many pieces and even wheels and motors and even hinges. This gives us the option to build a variety of new shapes and a variety of new working models. Sadly Construx was discontinued in 1988. Mattel tried to revive it in 1997 but his efforts were futile and it was again discontinued.
