The kids and I had a great time building this K’NEX dragon from the K’NEX Beasts Alive X-Flame Building Set we were sent to review! It is a pretty complex set – it took the kids and I a couple of hours to build and we were so busy building it that we missed Anna’s gymnastics class… I didn’t grow up playing with K’NEX (my brothers had them, but I don’t remember ever touching them although I think they would have shared if I had thought to ask). K’NEX are awesome for building spatial awareness and fine motor skills. They are also an extremely high quality toy – one of only toys still being made only in the United States.

I don’t think my kids could have built this on their own – there were too many times when they needed my help. With more practice and maybe getting a bit older they will get there; in the meantime this was a really fun mom + kids activity! K’NEX has created two other models that can be built with these same pieces (instructions are online), so it is really three sets in one. Check out our dragon in action:
