Review: Tinkertoy 65 Piece Essentials Value Set – K’Nex

Review: Tinkertoy 65 Piece Essentials Value Set

This year when Celeb Baby Laundry attended a mommy blogging conference one of the events I was invited to was the Sweet Suite 2013.  After the exclusive toy preview event I was sent a box containing many toys. One of the toys included was Tinkertoy‘s 65 Piece Essentials Value Set – K’nex.

Tinkertoy construction sets have been around forever.  I use to have one when I was a little girl and I loved it.  Can you believe the line has been around since 1914.  It just proves that fun toys never go out of style.

The pieces have changed slightly since I was young and now some of them are bendable, so you can not only build but you can make cute things like flowers.


My daughter Ava is too young for the set, so Celeb Baby Laundry‘s contributing mom, Jen reviewed the product with her children Mason and Maya. Here is her review:

Our children Maya and Mason were really excited when they saw the box, they love to create things and they got right to work.  The set included spools, rods, flags, washers and end caps.  Mason just loves building and this kept him occupied and stimulated for hours.  When it was dinner time it was hard to get him to stop building he was having so much fun.

Once dinner was over Mason went right back to building he started off following the colorful instruction sheet that was included in the box but soon was using his imagination and building many different things.  Mason was so excited that he could build things on his own.  My husband and I were thrilled to see how excited he was.

Once Maya saw how much fun Mason was having she joined in the fun.  Even though she is only 2-years-old she was able to build a few things.  Actually I think Maya had more fun taking apart what Mason built 🙂
