Sesame Street and K'Nex Building Sets: A Review and Giveaway

Remember Sesame Street? With Bert and Ernie, along with Elmo and the Cookie Monster, (just to name a few) how could we forget? Sesame Street has now teamed up with K'Nex to give us character building sets.

K'Nex is something I have just recently heard of. They specialize in building construction sets for children, which is great for challenging their little minds. Having girls, I thought they would not enjoy it as much as the traditional baby dolls. Boy was I wrong!

I have had the opportunity to review the Bert & Ernie Building Set. Both of my girls loved it! They are not tiny pieces so I know if I had a two year old, I would not worry about them choking on it. One thing I found neat was it includes three activity cards that have tiny bits of information to spark their curiosity. The recommended ages are from two-five year olds but Macie will be seven and she enjoyed it thoroughly.

Building is not just for boys anymore. Macie and Zoa had a blast assembling Bert and Ernie. I felt better knowing they were not watching television, but instead challenging their minds to create something or someone.

After reviewing the product, I bought one from Amazon for a birthday party. We were unable to make the party, but I am positive the birthday boy will enjoy it.

Want One?

You can purchase Sesame Street and K'Nex Building Sets on Amazon for $10.99-$31.99.
