I received K’nex products for this review, all opinions are my own.
My girls both really love to build things and especially when they can build their own creations! K’nex is the building toy that let’s your imagination run wild! I love how each piece fits together and you can make so many different things. We received the K’Nex 70 Model Building Set which comes with 705 pieces and stores conveniently in a little chest! The set also comes with an instruction booklet that shows a lot of different designs that you can make.
Leah and I had so much fun building the man and sailboat together, she loved gathering and helping me fit the pieces together
