Combine 382 rods, rings and connectors with a child’s imagination and the building projects are endless! Parents always like to see a tub of enough pieces to provide for kids to complete their designs and not get frustrated–this tub will do just that! Kids can start with the visual instructions for 50 builds to get ideas for their own animals, buildings, or vehicles or launch off into being their own designer. From a guitar or wind turbine, to a puppy or bridge, children learn how to build 3-D models using the K’NEX pieces for their model. I loved setting the tub down in front of a 7 year-old and watched her make and abacus and move on to other builds, following her imagination and ingenuity! Models can become the center of pretend play, building language skills that underly academic success.
