K'nex Toy Review - Win $1000 worth!!

K'nex 400 Pc Tub Review and Contest!!

What I received:
1 Tub
400 Pieces
20 Building Ideas

I gotta say I love the container - lol as a mom who likes to be organized, its great with a solid lid. Inside was baggies separating all the parts. No breaking pieces off a sheet (you the kind where its all attached plastic!) - they are tough little suckers no matter how hard Amber shoved them into place lol. Lots of parts so kids can build & rebuild over and over again; endless hrs of building, playing - not a toy they will get tired of.

It even came with a booklet that had tons of ideas and step by step instructions on how to build them. We picked one and tried it ourselves :) Course afterwards my husband destroyed it and is building his own creation lol

I think my husband had more fun than Amber or myself. Brought him back to his childhood :) I think it turned out nice !! The video actually shows that it works LOL - There is alot of movement in the models - wheels on cars, propeller on airplanes, our ferris wheel and there's a merry go round!!

  • Neat things - it works with Legos - so you can expand your Lego sets and add on with the K'nex!
  • The storage set (you know I Love it!) has TONS of room for more sets to be thrown in there with it.
  • Inexpensive - goes for around $20.99 - at Target, Wal-mart and Toys'R'Us
  • Age range is 7 and up
