K’NEX Garage Building Set Review
We were able to review the K’NEX Garage Building Set. It comes with 125 building pieces to create a garage with closing garage door as well as 2 vehicles to go in and out of the garage. This is a really clever building set. There is a coordinating Gas Station as well, if you child wants to add on. Again, I like that with K’NEX, you can enjoy their sets with or without expanding.
Another huge, huge, huge selling point for me as a mom is that I can understand the instructions and put the products together easily. This may not seem like a big deal to some, but some building sets are nearly impossible to follow their instructions. K’NEX does a really good job with photo diagrams.
Plus, the set is very easy to assemble for kids ages 5 and up. Everything is color coded for easy finding and assembling. My daughter needed help going step by step with such a large piece project, but she enjoyed the accomplishment of it. K’NEX pieces are sized just right for hands big and small. For kids under 5, check out Kid K’NEX too!
This set has several add-ons that are made of thick paper including the garage sign, garage door, and store front. For these, I had to assemble as to not tear the paper while inserting the rods through the cut out holes. Other than that, Elizabeth was able to build quite a bit.
K’NEX building sets are fun to build and play with. Elizabeth was most excited to play with the cars we built. She was excited that they actually move, plus they didn’t fall apart while playing with them. The garage door moves up and down too, which adds to the creative fun your kids will have with this set.[slickr-flickr tag=knexgarage]
We also assembled the K’NEX NASCAR Micro Building Set this afternoon, Elizabeth enjoyed playing with both sets together.
Another thing that I appreciate as a parent is the value and price of K’NEX sets. K’NEX sets are very affordable while still being made with good quality! This is a great set as a birthday present, reward, or Christmas present for kids ages 5 and up.
