K*Nex is a toy that is part of our life. Every now and then the kids try to create something new with the sets we have. Other times, they try to recreate the models offered in the box. We even have a remote control K*Nex sports car that they play with as well as some other ones that can be very colorful when working in the dark.
Since Christmas is coming, K*Nex has sent two sets to promote on my blog. Continue reading this blog post to see what else they have offered for my readers.
This fun treasure chest will allow your child to build anything he/she can imagine with instructions for overs 70 unique models. The creativity of the child will be unleashed and be prepare to be in awe of what this set can produce: cars, places, sea creatures, and much more. The box is loaded with over 700 K*Nex rods and connectors. And the best part is that the treasure chest can be use to store the pieces when your child is done playing with them. This set is ideal for any kids ages seven and up.
My kids have used K*Nex on and off through the years. But each time, they discover a new way of playing with them. I love the fact that sometimes, you can also download new projects for the set purchased – especially for the regular building sets like this one. I find that K*Nex allows your child to be more creative, to follow instructions when building, develop hands and eye coordination and will allow them to play with having too many toys.
Check out some of the models that can be made with this special set.
I think my favorite one is the flying bird seen above. I prefers K*Nex sets that promote and cultivate creativity over the ones that are based on specific themes. But I also know that other people love to get toys based on popular video games for their child so I also received a set based on the Super Mario Bros U to review.
Geared for kids ages 8 and more, this specific set will allow the child to go on a brand new adventure with Fire Mario as he journeys through the Layer Cake Desert. This special set feautres K'NEX's all new jump disk and launcher that allow Mario to run and jump, like he does in the game. Unfortunately, we are complete stranger to the new game so it is hard for me to compare the set with the video game. However, knowing how Mario games works and seeing the flexibility of K*Nex with their specialized theme sets, I am pretty sure that they nailed the Layer Cake Desert adventure.
With this special set from K*Nex your child will be able to build Fire Mario and use the jump launcher to enter the course. He will also be able to use the Stone-Eye Statue which flips back and forth by twisting a white connector . Mario can to cross to the right and collect the coins on top. But beware of the Waddlewing! Mario will be able to drop through the warp pipe and discover another complete play area on the back. Finally,it is possible to pop-up the Sand Geysers to cross to the last platform, where Mario will do battle with a spinning Pokey. The goal it the pop-up the flag in order to complete the course.
The best past is that this set can be combine with the rest of the K'NEX Super Mario™ building set line to take Mario on an even BIGGER adventure!
