Hands on K’Nex 350 piece Tub Review

K’Nex has a great assortment of kits to purchase, we recently were able to review the K’Nex 350 piece Tub. This delighted not only my son but my husband. They have spent hours building new building structures, robots, cameras, dragons, cars, bikes, Ferris wheels, dinosaurs, airplanes, and even more. The K’Nex 350 piece Tub comes with 350 parts and pieces and great instructions on 20 models to get you started.

The tub is large enough to hold the 350 pieces plus any structures that are in-progress or completed. What we like about the tub is that the pieces are kept in one place so they are not lost throughout the house. Elijah can even take the tub with him to a friend’s house or for an overnight visit to grandma’s house.

This product is for kids ages 7 and up. Elijah is 5, with supervision by either myself or his dad he is able to have a great time building with K’Nex. With little assistance from us, he is able to snap and click the pieces together. K’Nex is a great, fun way for kids to develop their fine motor skills and build their imaginations.

It is a great bonding time for the guys to hang out.  Elijah is so proud of the creations that he and his daddy build. K’Nex teaches perseverance and satisfaction in accomplishments as well.

With 350 pieces to work with, you can build and build and still have pieces left over. The above picture shows 3 models built, a bicycle, camera, and dinosaur. See how many pieces are left to continue building?! This is great when your kid wants to keep one built for a while and not dismantle it. Elijah has been carrying his K’Nex camera around for a while now to take pretend pictures even though he has his own real Spiderman camera!
