K'nex Product Review
A few months ago we received the 1-2-3 Brownstone Building Set from K'NEX. It is part of the Sesame Street Neighborhood Collection. Of course when Sara saw it, she needed to open it IMMEDIATELY.
We had so much fun! We were able to build the brownstone AND Elmo and Cookie Monster. There are 40 parts which was a perfect amount for Sara. Not too much to be overwhelming, but enough to keep her busy. There is also a "Play & Learn" activity sheet with additional building ideas that I loved.
Of course this was a huge hit at our house. Sara loved it because it was Elmo and Cookie Monster. I loved it because of all the great developmental benefits:
* Physical Development: Building supports the development of hand-eye coordination
* Social/Emotional Development: Encourages imaginative play
* Language Development: Talking about what they built and created can enhance your child's language skills
* Cognitive Skills: Sorting and making patterns with the building parts encourages thinking and problem solving skills.
FROM THE COMPANY:
Welcome to the neighborhood! K'NEX building toys inspire creativity, build self-confidence and encourage interaction among children and parents. The possibilities are endless!
