Not too long ago, I received a box from K'Nex with products inside. I was sort of surprised because I didn't expect anything from them. But since they have sent me some items to review, I will present the to my readers.
The first item I received was a Plants vs. Zombies kit. Now I know there is an app on iTunes called Plants vs. Zombies and I somewhat deducted that this kit and the individual packs that I will present later were linked to this app. Apparently, it is related to the Wild West game section of Plants vs. Zombies 2.
The Wild West Skirmish set contains over 220 pieces and will allow your child to defeat zombies and save his or her brain.... In the Wild West. Seriously though the set reminds me of the shooting range at a fair. You will find two Cowboy Zombie figures and one Prospector Zombie figure along with a Peashooter figure inside the box. All the child has to do is to use the K'Nex parts in order to build a Wild West area. Using the Peashooter's shooting action, you have to defeat the Zombies. You will find seven peas as well as a build able mama stand inside the box. All you have to do is to slide the Peashooter back and forth along the track and shoot the zombies.
This specific pack is geared for children ages 5 and up.
Also included in my package I found three packs of the Plants vs. Zombies Series 1. These special individual packs will allow your child to collect his favorite characters from Plants vs. Sombies. Each bag contains one mystery figure. Series 1 includes the following characters - Basic Zombie, Mummy Zombie, Future Conehead Zombie, Cowboy Zombie, Peashooter, Bloomerang, Bonk Choy and Sunflower.
Finally, the last item in my package was the Cosmic Quest Building Set. This specific set is geared for children ages 7 and up. It will allow the child to take an adventure into space and build 5 models - one at a time. The set allows you to build a Mars Rover, a Hover Craft, an Alien, a Space Suit, or a Moon Bike.
Though I must admit that I am not too fond of Zombies I think it is original to have based a popular construction toy on an app. Personally, of all the three items I have received, I prefer the Cosmic Quest building set because it will also allow more creativity in the end. Without hesitation, your child might decide to build something totally out of the ordinary that is still in the theme of outer space.
These three products are available at your favourite toy store, even on amazon.ca and amazon.com.
