Chicago's contributions to childhood

 
 

Lincoln Logs

These classic building block come courtesy of Chicago's most famous architectural bloodline. John L. Wright, the son of Frank Lloyd Wright, invented the logs in 1916 and trademarked the name "Lincoln Logs" in 1923. The name is not a nod to Abraham Lincoln, but rather to his father, whose middle name was Lincoln.
