Lil'N-Gineer Construction Sets

Lil'N-Gineer was an unusual construction system using wooden blocks joined with rods by clamps. It was made in Canada and the USA, in around the 1950s. It appears to be the same system as Baukerl Robo and Robo although the models are different. It was probably made in Canada/USA under license.
