K'NEX - 350 PC Value Tub Review & Giveaway



I told you I had a number of reviews and giveaways for K'NEX, an innovative construction toy company. This one focuses on the K'NEX 350 Pc Value Tub.

This tub loaded with 350 parts has kept my two boys busy for hours. Once in a while, the youngest girls will grab it up and make their own constructive toys. The builds are different with each kid, with the boys mostly making "fast cars" and "war machines". The girls have made bicycles and theme park rides.

Included are building ideas for 20 different models, but there's the endless possibilities of other creations that can be made with imagination. The plastic storage tub is nice to have to keep all the pieces in one place.

I've said it before with other K'NEX toys and I'll say it again. The pieces are small so they should be kept out of reach of tiny children and assembled on a hard, flat surface. K'NEX has various construction toys that can be bought by skill level and age. This particular set is recommended for those aged 7 and up.


Win It!
One person will receive a K'NEX 350 Pc Value Tub.

I am big KNEX fan, and I routinely post about KNEX. Checked their FAQ and noticed a typical KNEX lesson is written to last about 45 minutes. Thanks for posting!

I think it would be really cool to get this tub of knex!I love knex,and I think they are the best toy ever.I personally like the knex rollercoasters but these tubs are great because they have many instructions for many models, also for the fact that they have alot of pieces and you can come up with and build for yourself different desighns.

I learned the difference K'NEX Rods, Connectors and trim pieces used in both K'NEX Education and K'NEX retail sets are universal. You can combine parts from any and all K'NEX Sets and use them to create anything you can imagine. The difference between the two types of sets is that K'NEX Education sets are designed with the express purpose of being used as a classroom tool rather than an individual child's toy.

K'NEX Education Sets contain curriculum support materials, developed and tested by award-winning educators in classrooms across the country. These curriculum materials provide lesson plans detailing how to integrate K'NEX into lessons to teach concepts such as simple machines, amusement park technology, potential and kinetic energy, space exploration, fractions, measurement, and much more. These sets also contain multiple K'NEX parts and instructions so that groups of students can build models and study these concepts simultaneously.
