K’NEX Intro Assortment and TINKERTOY Building Sets Review



My kiddos are huge fans of building sets so they were super excited when our package from K’NEX arrived at the door! I have to admit I was very excited myself since summer is here we now have some fun projects for those dreaded rainy days!

My five year old son had lots of fun with building his new K’NEX sets. He did need a bit of help from my husband but was pretty much able to assemble them all by himself. The included instructions were easy to read and follow. The pieces are durable and easily snap together. Each set stayed together well during play also!

My little girl, who is three years old, screamed with excitement when I pulled out the big pink box of Tinker toys… she seldom gets her very own building sets. I can easily say not a day has gone by that she has not played with her building set. The instructions have some very fun suggested creations like a dog, butterfly, castle, kite and she has come up with some pretty cool ideas all her own. When finished we are able to store the pieces back in the box– which I love! I definitely recommend this TINKERTOY Pink Building Set for your little builder!
