K’NEX toys have worked wonderfully to keep my son off screens, if only for a short time. I found this in the living room, after hearing my son and his middle sister, PickyKidPix, playing together for a few hours. They don’t get along that well, so this K’NEX roller coaster is a miracle of collaborative play! This is what they built:
Usually, the first round of play with a building toy like K’NEX involves following the instructions to the letter in order to duplicate the photograph. After that, anything goes.
I asked him to pose with his finished piece and so he did. This is what it is like to raise a boy. A lot of potty humor!
Even though my son played with the K’NEX roller coaster sets quite happily, he insisted that the giveaway be the Angry Birds Space set. He was a big fan of Angry Birds a few years ago until he finished all the levels on most of the apps. The marriage of apps and K’NEX is a good one!
