K'NEX Review and (HUGE) Giveaway! ($170)

If you have kids that loves to build things, they will love K'NEX. They carry some amazing building sets I ever seen. I was lucky enough to review some of them.

About K'NEX

K'NEX is the next generation of construction sets. It inspires creativity, builds self-confidence and encourages interaction among children and parents. The possibilities are endless!

K'NEX Brands, L.P. is a privately held company, with the headquarters and manufacturing facility located in Hatfield, Pennsylvania. Today, K'NEX is the most innovative and fastest growing construction toy company. Internationally, K'NEX products are distributed in over 30 countries. K'NEX Brands is also proud to distribute BRIO trains and toys, as well as Lincoln Logs in the North America.


Sesame Street Building Sets: Each of of them has about 13 to 15 pieces. Recommended for 2 years and above.
  • Kick It! Elmo
  • Swim Time Ernie
  • Cookie Monster’s Basketball
This set is perfect for Olivia. The size is perfect for her little hands. Her favorite is Ernie. Each one comes with an instructions how to build them. The instructions also comes with other ways you can build with it. She's able to put everything on her own with very little help. I love that it comes with a canister for storage and for easy clean up when she's done playing. She can also take it along with her when visiting grandma.


Collect & Build Construction Crew Series: Recommended for ages 5 and up

Each set comes with K'NEX parts, including bricks, rods and connectors to build an exciting construction vehicle. There is also a K'NEX man to operate the vehicle, and construction accessories to play with! You can build on the brick plate that is included in the set, then combine all four sets and the brick plates become your own actual construction site!




Fire Rescue 10 Model Set: For ages 5 and up

Build 10 different models, including a cool fire engine, and bring them to life with the spring motor! Packed with 127 parts plus step-by-step instructions and building ideas for 10 unique models. The convenient storage box is a great place to store your parts and makes it easy for you to take the fun with you.




Micro-Bots: Recommended for ages 7 and up.

This set comes with 122 K'NEX parts, primarily micro rods & connectors to build a motorized robot. And just as their name suggests, Crawler moves by creeping along on four legs, Speedy moves with lightning quickness on wheels, Scooter moves by scooting along, and Hopper moves by jumping. You can even combine them to build an even bigger motorized robot!

This set was a little advance for Olivia. My nephew had a chance to build this and he enjoyed playing with it and so did my husband. The pieces are very tiny, so your kids have to be very careful not losing any pieces. It comes with an instruction that is very easy to follow. It took about half an hour to build each one. They are the coolest building set I ever seen. However, I wish they come with a storage holder. I have been using zip-locks to keep them separated and to prevent losing pieces.


350 Piece K’NEX Value Tub: For ages 7+.

Packed with 350 parts for lots of open-ended and endless building opportunities and after building play! Includes instructions and ideas for 20 models or use your imagination to dream up your own creations. The convenient and sturdy storage tub means there is always a place to store your parts and partially built models or take the fun with you wherever you go!

What I love about the 350 Piece is that kids can create so many things with it. It comes with an instruction to make 20 different models but they can also create anything they can imagine. The tub is great for easy clean up and storage. It can also work with other building set brands. The possibilities they can make are endless!


I am very pleased with all the building sets that we received.K'NEX will provide your kids hours of fun. It helps them become more creative and helps develop problem solving-skils.
