These new sets were designed to provide an easier building experience for young children. With just a little help, my 2 1/2 year old product tester had no problem manipulating the different K’NEX rods, connectors and blocks to build a custom-version of Cookie Monster.
According to K’NEX, construction toys and blocks support the development of hand-eye coordination, encourage imaginative play and give children the opportunity to practice problem-solving.
With Elmo, Cookie Monster, Ernie and Oscar the Grouch Sets available for $10.99, your little ones will have a ball building their favorite characters. With just 14-15 pieces, these sets are easy for young pre-schoolers to build and a perfect introduction to building blocks. For a bigger challenge, try the 46 part Elmo’s World or Bert & Ernie building sets ($21.99) or the 80 piece Cookie Monster & Hooper’s Store building set ($31.99).
