I started by opening the K'Nex 400 piece tub and boy were there a lot of pieces! Cars, airplanes, ferries wheels and hundreds of the pieces that connects them. This set alone entertained my girls for about 45 minutes. The building tub has literally hundreds of pieces! What does that mean for you? Endless fun...your child would have a hard time getting bored. There are so many things they could make and there are even more ideas online and in the included book. The best part about it is it does come in a storage tub so clean up is a breeze...I love it when toys with small pieces come with a storage container.
Next was the Sesame Street Police Car Building Set by Kid K'Nex. These have a larger pieces which make it easier for tiny hands to play with. If your little one is anything like my nephew, they love 'vroom vrooms' and this is perfect! There are also additional sets so your child can make the entire neighborhood! The sets come with a Play and Learn activity sheet for you and your child so this could easily be transformed into a deeper educational toy.
Unfortunately, I don't have a set to giveaway. But if you go to the K'Nex website and submit a video of your child playing with their K'Nex building set, you have a chance to win $1,000.00 and be featured on the site. Just look at the details and rules and submit your video! This ends on December 7th, 2009.
