K’NEX Building Set Review
From early childhood both of my kiddos have loved any kind of building sets. I love that they love them too! I also love that I have had the distinct pleasure of working with K’NEX.

Luke had so much fun building the turbo jet 2-in-1 set. I thought this set was very age appropriate for him at 8 years old. There were a few pieces he needed help snapping together but he built it 99% on his own. I do wish I would have added the batteries earlier in the building process because I had disconnected a few pieces to be able to access the battery compartment. The completed Turbo Jet also held together well during play. The final product was way bigger than I expected to to be. Luke has already dismantled the jet and has begun building the heli-plane.
