>We got an enormous box in the mail a few weeks ago. Inside was a ton of cool K’nex things to build.
For Littler Kids:
This Mama’s Thoughts: I love that the little kid K’nex sets come in their own storage containers. I think its awesome. Of course, my kids mixed up the pieces and created their own creations, as is their norm, but its so simple to separate the pieces and put them in their own buckets. Easy to assemble, easy to follow instructions. Both my bigger kids (almost 5 *Sob* and 2.5 liked these a lot). Its pretty cool you can bring them in the water, too.
This Mama’s thoughts: Love things that can be used/created in multiple ways. We may never find out what else the set can do since my little guy is obsessed with the F”eye” wah twuck and won’t let us try to alter it AT ALL. Anything that can “go” is a hit around here, even with the baby (K’nex are NOT for babies please don’t let babies play with them. Baby B had to settle for wooden trains while the kids did K’nex). The instructions are surprisingly simple- you really don’t have to read to follow them, which is awesome. I love that you just pull it back and it goes, the kids love the ladders along the sides best. Go figure.
This Mama’s Thoughts: The construction stuff is fun. Diggers and tractors and things with wheels are what my little guy eats, sleeps and breathes about. He’s not quite 3 but he can put the K’nex stuff together- not to the directions specifically but he does well enough. Busy and I did almost all of the assembling, and had a blast doing it. You should note these are for ages 5+. I kind of think they should be labelled 6 or 7+ only because even at a week shy of 5 my little girl’s play with them was too rough- they are really cool things to build but maybe not for smaller hands to play with- or maybe we Bargain peeps just play too rough? Assembly wise, 5 is on target.
