    We have LOTS of Struts in an orange bucket and I play with them regularly with my three year old son. The cover of the original box is taped to the bucket so wondering if this is the photo you’re in? Happy to email it to you.
    Kindest Regards

      I’d love to see a photo of that. I’ve sent you an email.

    We still have our orange bucket of Struts, my mother bought for our children in the 70’s. When our grandchildren come to stay they love building moveable objects with the Struts. We no longer have the book, but they soon workout how to use them (with help from their parents). I would never give them away, nor sell them.
