Indeed, yes. But all te same, I was remembered of those other toys. 
Schuco had those quaint, flexible wire, tracks, with junctions and 
bridges. And there was a predecessor of Lego of which I don't remember 
the name.

I still have a very old, wooden construction set which came from an 
uncle of mine, and dating back to a bit more than a century ago. The box 
cover is so scratched/broken that it is impossible to know /what/ its 
name was originally. From some word fragments it seems to be German too.
