I received this product for review all opinions are my own.
My girls absolutely love to build things. I love that K’NEX has so many products for different ages. I was sent the Tinkertoy 150 piece set from K’NEX. What I love about this set is that there are so many pieces and a book full of ideas that you can make! I can make a dog, flower or anything else out of the book or my own imagination! This is the perfect set for Charlotte for Christmas!
“Build a whole bunch with your favorite TINKERTOY® parts! The TINKERTOY® 150 Piece Essentials Value Set includes spools, rods, flags, washers, end caps, and more! Building ideas included for all skill levels. Your child can add these parts to another TINKERTOY® building set (sold separately) or build anything they imagine! Most models can be built one at a time.

My girls both really love to build and learn. This year Leah has really grown into her own and loves Math and Science! I love that the Mighty Makers from K’NEX are specifically for girls who love those subjects!
K’NEX is a great brand that promotes the learning of all children no matter if they are boys or girls. I love that K’NEX has come out with STEM related toys to help girls really love science, technology and mathematics. Leah loves these sets and especially loves that she can follow the directions by herself with little or no help from Mom and Dad. I am trying to let Leah and Charlotte know that they are smart girls and can learn new things everyday. Both of my girls love to build this is the perfect set!

Mighty Makers are the perfect gift this Christmas for any girl ages 7+ (my girls love to build these together) It’s a great way to teach them the importance of Knowledge and of course having fun!
“Estimates show the U.S. will have over 1.2 million unfilled jobs in science, technology, engineering, and math by 2018. The need for educated and excited workers is growing! Without the needed coursework and training, many of the openings in STEM careers will go unfilled. This crisis pits job openings against a population that is not qualified to fill them. Children educated in STEM-related disciplines will ultimately have lower unemployment rates and higher starting salaries than the population at large.
K’NEX has noticed a lack of women pursuing careers in STEM and we want to help change that! Young girls have a natural inclination towards building and designing, but there are very few options for them in the building toy aisle.
Building, constructing, and creating, gives children the foundation they need to become lifelong learners who can solve problems, think critically, work collaboratively and adapt to change in today’s technologically evolving world.
Mighty Makers building sets were designed by women to empower young girls and invites them to express their natural creativity with fun, colorful structures and characters. Mighty Makers sets aim to show every girl that she can be MIGHTY!” (Mighty Makers Press Release)
