K'NEX has several sets available for Evan to build with. They distribute their products in over 30 countries. and strive to provide safe, effective, innovative, and distinctive brands that truly delight the senses of sight and touch at every age. They also provide BRIO trains and toys and Lincoln Logs in North America.
K'NEX sent Evan the Sesame Street Neighborhood Collection: Police Station.
The set is meant for children over 2 and includes 44 parts. There is a buildable Elmo and Ernie that are ready to report for duty. The set is completely compatible with the other three Neighborhood Collections so that children can use all of the pieces to make the whole town. A "Play & Learn" activity sheet with additional building ideas is included to provide children with even more play.
Evan has had a blast with the Police Station. He loves the windows and always is sure to include them in his "designs". At this stage, he doesn't care about the directions or how you're supposed to put the pieces together, he just stacks them all up. I like how the set also includes a stop sign and stop light to make it more realistic. I plan on purchasing the Police Car that I know Evan will enjoy driving through the neighborhood that he builds.
The only thing that I don't like is that there is no storage included. With 44 pieces, the set can be a mom's nightmare if there isn't a way to contain them. I went out and purchased a plastic shoe box size container at the dollar store so that I could keep the parts together.
The Police Station has provided Evan with hours of fun and I would recommend it to anyone with a child that enjoys building.
