“ Brand: K'Nex / Age: 3 Years+ „
I was recently in Toys R Us and spotted that they had Kids Knex on special offer. It was something I had never really known whether I should get some for my son or not but as it was on a special offer (Half price I think and around £10) I picked up the playgroup pals play set.
This set comes in a bright orange box with a blue lid and a green handle. It states it is suitable for age 3+ and I think this is probably quite an accurate assessment. Inside the box there is a booklet which has ideas of things that you can make with the Knex. There are also 80 pieces of Knex: These range from long pole type pieces to hexagon shapes pieces, small connecting pieces and a couple of big eyeballs!
Initially when my son started playing with the set he liked to make the things that were in the ideas booklet but after time he really began to use his imagination and once made me a handbag with it! He will quite happily sit and play with this in his bedroom for around an hour or so which I think is good going for a young child.
In terms of development I think this kids knex set can really encourage a child to become more creative, whilst also developing their motor skills as they fix the pieces together.
I would really recommend this product for children aged 3-5. I have bought a more advanced set and put it away for my son for this Christmas.
