Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9915250A2] A modular lattice substructure (4) for a playing structure, such as a toy building set (2), that includes frames (132) and columns (112). In one embodiment, the sides of the columns (12) have a prostrusion connector (44) removably attachable to a slot connector (50) in the ends of elongate beams (32) and the ends of elongate joists (62), the beams (32) and joists (62) forming the frame. In another embodiment, the column (212) includes four protrusion connectors (220) on an upper portion, and four receptive connectors on a lower portion. The frame (232) includes protrusion connectors (236) on an upper portion and receptive connectors on a lower portion. The protrusion connectors (236) on the frame are attachable to the receptive connectors on the columns, and vice-versa. In this manner, a single frame (232) can be attached to a plurality of columns (212), and a single column (212) can be attached to a plurality of frames (232) in order to form a modular lattice substructure for a playing structure.
