Most kids love to build things. Since my son was very little he has spent countless hours building things with his toys. As he has gotten older the building sets have gotten much more difficult and expensive. For his birthday in May he wanted a particular building set which was priced at $59.99 for only 120 pieces!!
K’nex is the next generation of construction sets. It inspires creativity, builds self-confidence and encourages interaction between parents and children. K’nex building sets are made up of different types of pieces like rods and wheels that snap together making endless amounts of creations. They are also very reasonably priced.
We were sent several different products to review. Both of my kids did the happy dance around the living room as they saw all the goodies K’nex had sent us.
My daughter is a HUGE sesame street fan and immediately recognized Elmo. Since these were quick and easy to put together we played with the Sesame Street Character K’nex sets first. We were sent Kick It! Elmo, Swim Time Ernie and Cookie Monster’s Basketball. These are all priced at $12.99 online which I personally think is an awesome price for the quality of these products.
My daughter loved the sesame street characters! She is still a little too young to put these together by herself so my son helped her out and this was the cutest thing watching my kids interact while working together and building something! These are the kind of memories that are priceless! All of the characters also come with their own plastic container for easy storage.
We were also sent all four of the new Consruction Crew series. These were a little more time consuming so my husband and son built these together. I honestly think my husband had more fun putting these together than my son did 🙂 These are very cool! All four of them come with 120 pieces including bricks, rods and connectors to build a working construction vehicle. They also come with their own construction man and accessories to play with.
My son had a great time playing with these! He took some of his Lincoln logs and bulit a construction zone and played for hours. I love seeing him use his imagination and get so creative. The only issue that we could find with the construction series is that some of the pieces come off pretty easily so you have to keep putting them back together. Other than that these are great and they are priced at only $11.99 each. I did not want to mix all of the pieces up so I bought $1 containers for all of the sets and instructions to keep them organized.
