Definition and framework of construction toys: construction toys include any toy that allows children to build an object from component blocks or other pieces. These blocks/pieces are typically made from plastic or wood. The most common example is LEGO, which consists of sets of interlocking plastic building blocks. Other similar products include Hasbro’s K’nex, Megablocks, Meccano, Uberstix, Best Lock Construction Toys and Erector Set. Constructible action figures, such as LEGO Heroes are also included construction toys.

Consumers must construct model kits themselves. Model kits include component pieces (made of plastic, wood, or die -cast metal) that either snap or must be glued together, paint, and stickers/decals. These can be model cars, aircraft, nautical vehicles, rockets, other spacecraft, animals, and monsters.
