T2 Fact


Alfred Carlton Gilbert invented and introduced the toy Erector Set in 1913. First named Mysto Erector Structural Steel Builder, Erector Sets had evenly spaced holes for bolts to pass through, and used screws, bolts, pulleys, and gears similiar to those used during real construction. At the time, Erector Sets were in direct competition with the Meccano building toy. However, Meccano Toys, Ltd. bought the rights to the Erector Set in 1962.
