Professor in 1964, Artur Fischer invented Fischertechnik and it was supposed to only be a Christmas gift for customers and business partners. The official fischertechnik premier was held on the Second German Television Program on Christmas in 1965. The first 1000 buildings set were donated by the inventor to the 'Project Problem-Child.'

In the following spring, fischertechnik was introduced to the retail toy market and thus the success story of a building set system began, which is still unique today. The success is shown by awards such as the 'Best Toy 1966,' 1970 the 'Oscar du Jouet' in France and the selection as 'Game of the Year 1976' in Holland.

The system is based on a basic building block, which can be built out or built on on all six sides, just as you wish with angle blocks, static parts, numerous electronic components or remote infrared control. Even the control of the models with a computer has been possible for 20 years. The fischertechnik assortment has 40 building sets and supplement sets.

The fischertechnik building sets have been used around the globe for a long time and not only in children's rooms. Today, more than 30,000 people are members of the fischertechnik fan club worldwide. Schools, universities and development offices also use fischertechnik for development and simulation. In this way, some engineer careers have started with one of these building sets: fischertechnik-building blocks for life.

I have a large box of FisherTechnik (vintage). None of it is boxed in sets but there are at least 3 large(ish) sets plus many other smaller sets. I am interested to sell as a job lot. I can try to catalogue, or photograph all items and send to you if you are interested.
Hi Terry, thanks for the offer, but I have already (unfortunately...) enough stuff, haha! Good luck. You might want to try eBay or maybe there are some collectors groups on Facebook.

goede dag,ik heb als kind een bouwpakket gekregen en daar kon je van alles mee bouwen van heel simpel tot moeilijk het bestond uit 4 bakjes met daar van alles in nu ben ik op zoek naar die bouw boekjes.ik denk dat dat rond 1985 moet geweest zijn.kun je mij daar mee helpen alvast bedank.
Was het van plastic of ijzer? En hoe kon je de onderdelen aan elkaar zetten, weet je dat nog? Er zijn veel merken (geweest) op dit gebied dus vrij lastig zoeken.
