Family Fun With K'Nex Building Sets!







What is it about boys, imaginations and building that just goes together so well? Because honestly, when they are 'creating' masterpieces that is just about the only time I get some peace and quiet! So when we were asked to review K'NEX Building Sets, I knew this was a definite "YES!" Please!!



My five year old received the 400 PCS Tub from K'NEX, that that comes with building ideas for 20 different models and a convenient storage tub. And as I have mentioned before, I am all about toys that come with containers that are easy for clean-up! And my three year old received the too-cute Sesame Street Neighborhood Collection Building Sets. These sets let children build and then play with their favorite Sesame Street friends, including Elmo, Cookie Monster and Ernie. When he pulled Elmo out of that box, he was grinning from ear to ear.

It took maybe less than 3 seconds for those toys to be opened, and squeals to quiet down, before some serious concentration took over. I love love when my munchkin boys get all serious...wrinkled brows and all, and focus on creating some wonderful 'never before invented', creation! Of course, it did not take long either for the biggest boy of all, the hubbs, to join in. I tell you....boys and building just go together!

My five year old really enjoyed getting some help from his Dad, as he was having a bit of difficulty with his K'NEX. But it made for a great bonding time and the two had so much fun, that it worked out well. The Sesame Street Collection, on the other hand, was perfect for my little guy to handle on his own. The pieces are big and easily connect to each other. He especially loved having his favorite characters from Sesame Street to play with as well. The size and colors are perfect for small hands and imaginations.

Much fun has been had with these sets, imaginations have been used (yea!!), and every time one or both of the boys want to play with their K'NEX, it is so easy to grab the tub, open, spill out the pieces, create, and toss the pieces back in the tub when done! One note-- the Sesame Street Collection does not come in a tub container, but I just use a plastic container we had already here so my little guy can play and clean up easily too! Also, the K'NEX building pieces in the tub are small, and if you have little ones smaller than 3, or that just like to put things in their mouths, I would be careful to keep that set away from them.
Bottom line here: We all loved the K'NEX sets we received, and definitely give both sets a unanimous two thumbs up!!

Thanks to Team Mom and K'NEX for supplying these items for review. No compensation other than the toy sets reviewed was received. The opinions expressed here are solely my own (and my munchkin boys!), and may not be the same as others opinions.
