Trying to find a nostalgic christmas toy 9 years 11 months ago #385021

Hey Guys! Long time no see/interneting.I'm looking for an old toy that I vaguely remember the name of and I'm going to try to do my best to describe it. It's a building type toy, kind of like Legos, except it is shaped in a triangle. When you build with them you click them together side to side almost like a puzzle piece snapping together except that they are all the same shape. I think the name of the toy is Zigzag but that's not giving me any results. I had it in a blue nylon bag with a draw string when I was a kid but I'm not sure if that's what it came in or not. Thanks for the help if you can give any =D

It's definitely not K-nex and not "Clics"

I know you said that they pieces were all triangles but, are you sure it's not Zaks? It has squares and triangles though. The manufacturing dates seem to coincide with when you were a child.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zaks

Zaks were awesome. They even had pieces you could attach Lego to iirc.
