Lincoln Logs were invented by John Lloyd Wright. Name sound familiar? John was the son of arguably the world’s most famous architect, Frank Lloyd Wright.

He got the idea, no surprise, while working with his dad. At 24, he accompanied his father in Japan to help design a new, earthquake-proof version of Tokyo’s Imperial Hotel. Frank concocted an ingenious system of interlocking timber beams that, yes, later withstood an earthquake. Young John went home and—yada yada yada, father–son drama—got fired by his dad. In 1918, with the Imperial Hotel’s design in mind (as well as, some suspect, log cabin toys he played with as a kid), he designed the toy construction set that’s been unshakeable from kids’ playrooms ever since. The original toys came with instructions on how to build Abraham Lincoln’s boyhood home, hence the “Lincoln Logs” name.

John’s father’s Imperial Hotel came down in 1968. Lincoln Logs were inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame in 1999.
