Angry Birds are everywhere, and with good reason. It’s a very addicting game to play. If you have a few minutes to spare, might as well play some Angry Birds and the time flies by. Literally. Flies by like catapulting angry birds.
They are everywhere so much so that they’ve come out of our phone and tablet to our tabletop. With real-life games and toys, my kids have grown to be huge fans. We have the stuffed birds that they fling across the room along with many other licensed toys.
Now, K’NEX has come out with Angry Birds Space: Red Planet â€œHogs on Marsâ€ Building Set.
With the Hogs On Mars building set, fans of the app can actually build and destroy a level from Angry Birds Space! Launch Incredible Terence and Lightning Bird to defeat the 2 evil space pigs and destroy the Mars Rover. Sets also include a working launcher made of red planet pieces, a bonus space egg, plus enough parts to build and destroy over and over again. Everything included works with other K’NEX Angry Birds sets. Perfect for builders ages 7+. Suggested retail price is $24.99. Available now exclusively at Toys â€˜R US.
The point of this set is to build it to destroy it, so keep that in mind. Of course, the kids loved this aspect. You should probably make sure your little ones are old enough to know how to put it all back together, though, or else you’ll be busy all night long reconstructing their game zone.
This is me being mom, however, and sometimes you have to let go and think like a kid again.
It is very easy to piece together. And so very fun to watch as my kids figured out just where to place the launcher for maximum destruction. Then, they simply place the bird in the slingshot and launch!
If you have fans of Angry Birds, the Hogs On Mars building set is definitely a great set for the collection. It’s more like the game than any other I’ve found so far.
