K'NEX Toys Review

‘K'NEX is the next generation of construction sets. It inspires creativity, builds self-confidence and encourages interaction among children and parents. The possibilities are endless!”

I received the Lincoln Logs White River Ranch set and the Silly Monsters Building Set for review.

One of my son’s favorite activities is building. He loves to make towers, houses, spaceships… anything that he can imagine, he tries to build. Of course when we opened the box from K’NEX containing the Lincoln Logs as the Silly Monsters Building Set, he was ecstatic!

The Lincoln Logs brand has been around for years, and is a name that is known to be of good quality. So needless to say, we were not surprised when we started playing with the Lincoln Logs White River Ranch set to find that it was made of high quality with durable parts. The White River Ranch set is for ages 3+ and includes 90 pieces all together. With this set, you receive 79 wooden logs, 4 figurines (a cowboy, dog, horse and cow), 4 roof and door pieces, and a trough and a flag to finish it off! Cooper has loved playing with this set and using the figurines to tell many different stories that he creates. I love how this set causes him to use his imagination! He never ceases to amaze me with the things that he comes up with!

Cooper also loves the Silly Monsters Building Set. This set is for ages 3+ as well, and contains 23 pieces including rods, connectors, and personality parts including toes, curls, and eyes. Cooper has enjoyed building different alterations of monsters with this set. I even saw Cooper create a scene using both the monster and the White River Ranch set, where the monster attacked the ranch and scared all of the animals into hiding! It was quite entertaining to watch, and again, made me extremely happy that my son is using his imagination to build and play with these sets.

I would highly recommend any K’NEX toy to anyone. We own quite a few K’NEX toys and have yet to be let down!
