All my children love construction toys, if you can build with a toy they’ll all play for hours on end. K’Nex is no exception. Z was lucky enough to inherit my younger brother’s collection which much to his excitement included a couple of motors, but it’s been hard for him to build without instructions, and it’s a bit of a random mix of bits from lots of different sets.
When this box of K’Nex with 52 ideas to build and 618 pieces arrived to review he was over the moon and couldn’t wait to get going. He is 7, but very good at following instructions, thanks to years of LEGO building.
Within half an hour we had a golf kart.
The girls went a bit off piste and made fairy wands, which just shows you K’Nex is not just for boys.
I think K’Nex is just brilliant and this set is great value for £24.99. Don’t forget to check out the K’Nex website, they have some AMAZING products, Z has his eye on the roller coaster for Christmas.

We were sent the box of K’Nex above for the purpose of this review.
