K’NEX review and contest info

Thank you to everyone who commented on yesterday’s post! I enjoyed reading about what works in your homes, and I’ll be saving many of your tips for future use in our home – especially since what works in our house one day does not always work the next.

Johnny playing with KNEX

Team Mom recently sent us one of the new K’NEX Sesame Street Neighborhood Collection Building Sets to review. We were sent the Police Station Building Set, and Johnny in particular has enjoyed playing with it. He was very excited to see the Elmo character, and he now calls this his “Memo” toy.

Our set came with a good number of pieces, which Johnny loves to use to build towers. The blocks are compatible with Duplo blocks, which made me happy since we have a bunch of those. The set we were given to review came with an activity sheet, including step-by-step instructions. Emma enjoyed following these instructions, and I think they are a nice stepping stone to the sometimes complex instruction sheets that come with construction sets for older children. I also liked that the activity sheet included a variety of things to build and ideas of different ways to use the set. The recommended age range for this set is 2-5 years, and I think these sets do have the potential to engage most children within that age range.

This was our first time playing with a K’NEX product – do you have any that you enjoy, or do you remember playing with K’NEX as a child?

    Wow! That sounds like a great prize for a video contest. So great to see Johnny playing with these. He looks so intent!
