Review of K'NEX Sesame Street Building Sets

10:54 AM


Do little builders live at your house? Are they fans of Sesame Street? You will dig the new Sesame Street sets from K'NEX. We sure did!

Chunky parts make this set an easy one for little hands to grasp (and for piece-hunting Moms to find.) They can stack, connect, and create their very own Sesame Street character, with very little parental guidance. It encourages creativity and gives kids a chance to do something on their own!

Our boys loved this set. The just-turned-5-year-old liked it best, building and rebuilding in every room of our house. I liked that the pieces all go back into a sturdy container (no plastic baggies for this toy.) The handy guide on the side of the container told us how many of each piece were included, which helped us account for everything when it came time to clean up (has anyone seen that left arm?)


The best part of the set is its ability to expand upon. By getting another Sesame Street set, or any other Kid K'NEX set, you can create anything! (We have an alien set that worked nicely alongside Ernie -- an Ernie-alien hybrid was just what this family needed.)

For all the Sesame fun, see the K'NEX website - There are assorted sets for all price ranges!

Thanks to K'NEX, we have the opportunity to give away one Sesame Street K'NEX set to a lucky reader! To enter to win, just comment here with any other K'NEX product you think is neat (see website for ideas.) You have until October 6th at 5pm to get your entries in. Giveaway is subject to complete site rules. (Be sure to give us a way to reach you if you win, and remember that we will never use your email or contact info for anything other than to send your prize.) Good luck!

Their little brothers are always trying to get their hands on them so this would be PERFECT for them.
