Being a huge fan of Sesame Street since she was an infant, DD was overjoyed when K'NEX Sesame Street Building Sets arrived at our home. I don't know any kid who doesn't get excited over Sesame Street characters, DD is no exception. Her favorite Sesame Street character is Elmo and her love for him has not changed since she was an infant.
Aimee from K'NEX was so sweet. She sent DD a huge box full of fun toys to review. DD loves building blocks and she also loves Elmo. As such, to be able to combine the two things she loves into 1 fun toy is just the most exciting thing to her. In any case, DD received KICK IT! ELMO BUILDING SET , SWIM TIME ERNIE BUILDING SET , COOKIE MONSTER'S BASKETBALL BUILDING SET , NEIGHBORHOOD COLLECTION 1-2-3 BROWNSTONE BUILDING SET and NEIGHBORHOOD COLLECTION POLICE STATION BUILDING SET to review.
If you have a child who loves Sesame Street as much as mine does, you can probably imagine that these toys were instant hits. DD could not wait to open up all of her new toys.
Not surprisingly, the first one she asked to open was Elmo.
Look, DD with her new Elmo building set!
The building sets are made for children age 2-5. The first thing I noticed was how large the pieces were so the kids can handle them easily. I like that when you have different sets, you can mix and match all of the pieces. In addition, the pieces snap together really well and can also be pulled apart very easily (I think this is very important for young kids). I was surprised by how quickly DD figured how to put all of the pieces together. She was able to look at the images on the boxes and just put all of the characters together one by one. DD, of course, loves her Sesame Street Building Sets. I love them too for different reasons. I love that they don't make annoying noises ;). I love that she can use her imagination to put different blocks together to build new things. More importantly, I love that these seemingly simply toys are able to bring so much entertainment to my daughter. K'NEX Sesame Street Building Sets get two thumbs up from me!
To buy your own K'NEX Sesame Street Building Sets, please go to the K'NEX website to make your purchases.
Many thanks to Aimee of K'Nex. She has generously offered all of the toys we received to review as giveaway prizes to one of my lucky readers (US residents only please). That is right! One of my lucky readers will receive over $80 worth of toys from the company!
