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:

Both of my kids would love this set. My 8 yo is a K’nex pro and my 6 yo is a rookie, but both enjoy building with Knex. I have found that this building set allow more freedom to free build. My 8 yo will often go to Knex when he needs to build a model– shaduf ( when studying Egyptian culture or Staircase to create a diorama that needed one, etc.

We manage to regularly lose pieces of K’Nex all around our house. I don’t know how or why, we don’t have lots of sets, but the few we do have are a big ol’ mess.
My son, who loves every type of building toy we can find, would no doubt enjoy this one. I haven’t tried K’NEX yet for him!

My daughter is a huge dinosaur junkie (she can rattle off dino names I’ve never even heard of along with obscure info like the period they lived in and the number of toes they had!) And I know she’d just love this set.
My daughter would absolutely love the set, if she can manage to get it away from Daddy
Ha! Daddy toy hog.
