Do you have a K’NEXpert on your hands who loves to build creative, original models made entirely from K’NEX parts?
For the first time since its launch in 2001, the K’NEXpert Search contest will have 4 grand-prize winners from four different age groups. Age groups include: 5-6 years old; 7-8 years old; 9-11 years old; and 12-14 years old which is a new category this year.
Judged on creativity, uniqueness and detail, the four imaginative children who win will each receive a prize package valued at $3,650. This package includes: $2,500, an iPad Miniâ„¢, a $250 gift card to Toys â€œRâ€ Us®, and a $500 K’NEX credit code good toward a shopping spree at knex.com. You have until August 23, 2013 to enter!
My kids would probably never win in this contest, but we still have fun building with K’NEX. We built with the classic Intro Assortments this week, which are great for the beginning builder. I say we, because as is usual I do most of the constructing while they get to play with the end result.
There are 3 sets in the collection: the plane, helicopter, and fire truck. While we built only the helicopter and plane, if you collect and build all three it creates a space shuttle with cargo doors that open and close!
She flew those things around better than her brothers did!
Each set contains 60+ classic, made in the USA K’NEX rods and connectors that are relatively easy to snap together and full color instructions. Suggested retail price of these sets is $5.99 and are available at knex.com as well as toy retailers nationwide. For ages 5+.
As a KNEX brand ambassador I received products to review. No other compensation was received. Opinions are my own.
