K'NEX review

Have you ever dreamed of designing your own Ferris wheel?  Ever thought what it would be link to put together your own car, build a horse, a house even a roller coaster!
With K'NEX all this and much more is possible!  They give kids a way to let their imaginations run wild!

Now this isn't the first time we had K'NEX in the house and I know just how excited my kiddos can get with all the possibilities!
Quinn is at the stage where putting pieces together is a lot of fun, he even likes to make shapes!  Brandon Jr on the other hand is at the stage where he likes to design and make new things.  My hubby and I are always a bit in awe to see the amazing things he creates.

For my holiday gift guide I was sent 2 items to review.  And I have to say both were pretty cool!
The were both durable, as are all the K'NEX products I ever had.  

First up we reviewed an items from the Plants VS Zombies products.

 Defeat the zombies and save your brains...on the Pirate Seas! This buildable replica of the Pirate Seas level in Plants vs. Zombies 2 includes special "rumble grid" action - turn on the battery-powered motor to make the zombies move down the rows towards the plants, just like they do in the game! 
Includes 1 Pirate Zombie figure, 1 Pirate Conehead Zombie figure and 1 Pirate Captain Zombie figure. Battle the zombies with the 2 included plants: shoot coconut ammo from a Coconut Cannon or launch a cabbage with a Cabbage-pult. 
Easy to follow building instructions included. For ages 7+. Batteries not included.

 Features: Buildable level from Plants vs. Zombies 2: Pirate Seas
 3 zombie figures: Pirate, Pirate Conehead, Pirate 
Captain Coconut Cannon with shooting action
 Cabbage-pult with launching action

My review:
FUN!  My kiddos had a blast with the launching and shooting actions.  They also liked the facts that they were able to shoot down zombies (Which looked pretty neat, by the way!)
The Motorized rumble grid just added to the fun and lets not forget the best part and that was the actual building!
With 319 pieces we had so much fun putting it together.

Yes you read that right 705 pieces!!!  The possibilities were truly endless!  My kiddos pulled out the instruction booklet and instantly started to make the 70 models.  After a few they started to stray a bit and make their own things and eventually they had their own little thing going on. 
To say the least I was impressed by their creativity and also by the fact that thanks to so many pieces they were able to do so much!
