Have you heard about a company named K-NEX? I would love to introduce to this great company if you haven’t and maybe give you a little more information about them if you already know about them.
K-NEX offers you an awesome array of block designs for kids ages 2 and up! The ladybug always loved blocks and that is a love that hasn’t died but instead has grown as she gets older, and I have to admit that I really like the fact that she does…. I really believe that blocks are a great way to help the little one to develop different skills like imagination, pretend play and construction of different figures .
I had the chance to try for a review of the K- NEX blocks, some of the sets they sent me were for the ladybug and the rest for my 10 year old nephew.
I have one word for the K-NEX Sesame Street character’s blocks: Adorable and if you allow me I will include the adjective awesome too! The different characters are just too cute and the very best part , is that they are actually very easy to put together ! Yes, I was able to build the Cookie Monster and Ernie with the help of my little bug…YAY me!
The Sesame Street K-NEX Characters are cute enough that I have actually considered getting the rest of the collection and set them up on top of the ladybugs dresser as part of her room decoration.
The sets for the older kids can be really intricate and lots of fun , with many small pieces to get the designs together is a great way to get the kids to exercise their imagination. What a great idea to keep them away from the computers and video games and have them do an activity that is a great mind an concentration exercise and most of them will not require any batteries or power supply.
I Love the many different designs that they have to offer which I have to say can be a real project even a team project to put together……A great activity to do and spend time with the kids.
