Play is the main way children learn and develop ideas about the world. It helps them build the skills necessary for critical thinking and leadership. It’s how they learn to solve problems and to feel good about their ability to learn. K’NEX Playsets are a great way to learn through play.
As part of the K’NEX fall campaign, I was sent the Tinkertoy 150 piece Essentials Value Set. Since we have the Tinkertoy 30 Model Super Building Set, I was very excited to expand our play and see what new things we an create. And bonus, Little Miss M is at the perfect age to really enjoy them.
K'NEXoffers you an awesome array of block designs for kids ages 2 and up! I really believe that blocks are a great way to help develop different skills like imagination, pretend play and construction of different figures.
150 PIECE ESSENTIALS VALUE SET
· 150 "essential" Tinker toy pieces; spools, rods, flags, washers, end caps and more!
· Instruction sheet with building tips and ideas
· Sturdy box for storage and portability
When the Tinkertoy Essentials Set arrived Little Miss M immediately ripped open the package and starting “Tinkering”. She said that she wants to be a tinker like Tinkerbell (one of her favorites right now). With this Tinkertoy set, the building possibilities are endless. Since all K'NEX sets are interchangeable we pulled out her other set and built some really cool things! These are so fun to play with, even adults will enjoy. I know I did (and so did Hubby). I think the first day we ended up playing for 2 and a half hours!!! The main thing that I noticed is that the pieces not only fit together perfectly but they stay together.So if you build a car with wheels you can play with it and not have to worry about it falling apart.
Building with Daddy
We had a lot of fun creating different mechanisms and seeing how they maneuver.I love toys that not only bring fun and excitement to our home, but bring an element of creativity as well. You can’t go wrong with classics, right?! These building sets are great for using your imagination, but if your child is not feeling particularly creative they can use the included building guide. The possibilities are endless with the fun of K'NEXTinkertoys.
Tinkertoys are available through K'NEX, Amazon, and retailers nationwide.
