My son has never been into building. I was hoping that when Team Mom sent me the invite to participate in this review, that since he is older now, he would be interested in building with K'NEX. I had bought them for him years ago but they were a little hard to him to build anything tangible, and I guess he just gave up.
My daughter, on the other hand, was thrilled when she saw this box show up. She immediately started building. Now, I won't lie to you and say it was a masterpiece or anything, but she's sure done her share of practicing! (This is why I have no personal pictures for this post!)
This K'NEX 400-piece set has so many different pieces that you can make just about anything that your imagination can think of! There's even a little booklet that shows how to make certain things. Like Ferris Wheels and cars. Super fun, huh!?
Isn't it beautiful?! Granted, we're not on that level yet, but I hope that we will be there soon! This bucket of toys has been entertaining my daughter for the past couple of weeks, and I'm sure they'll be a toy that she'll keep coming back to! (I'm still holding out hope that my son will show some interest, before it's all said and done!)
