Last year I received our first K’Nex Sesame Street Building Set. I posted about our Ernie set a little over a year ago here and believe me, it was a great gift. My kids (ages 5 and 4) still play with that Ernie. When Team Mom sent me another Sesame Street set my kids were thrilled. This set is way cooler.
It’s basically a brownstone from Sesame Street. It’s actually called 123 Brownstone Building Set. It’s geared for ages 2 to 5, retails for $20.99 at Target, Walmart and ToysRUs. You can also find more info at their website. We opened the box and dumped out all the contents, in true L and J fashion (they are really good at making messes).
L and I unfolded the instructions and I sat back and let the kids figure it out. They had trouble with the windows and snapping those into the right places but otherwise they were able to do the whole thing by themselves.
They play with this set all the time. Of course taking it apart and putting it back together in different ways. J will leave the building in tact and play with it like an airplane. The possibilities are endless but if you need a little help there is on the backside of the instructions are activities to help with colors and following directions. These are great sets made by a great company. They would make fabulous gifts for those young kids in your life. Think about these sets when your out shopping on Black Friday.
