Can you help me find examples of modular building components? Answered

lego
duplo
kinex

drilled paddlepop sticks

i also seem to have a memory of a rounded triangle shape in plastic/metal with bits cut out that you can attach together at right angles? no idea what they might be called. Any other suggestions out there?

What you are think of is Meccano.  It has changed a lot in recent years, but it used to be nothing but metal plates in a range of standard sizes, held together with nuts and bolts.
