K'NEX Sesame Street building sets- A review.

When I received this item in the mail I was so ecstatic that I tore it open and I was literally anxious for Sophia to wake up from her nap! Sophia is 2 and a half years old and is just fascinated by building things. Whether it be blocks Lego's or stacking boxes to create a play zone, she is a builder! The problem that we often run across in picking out a new item of the sort for Sophia is that the pieces are tiny and she has a hard time connecting them.

When she first saw the Oscar the grouch building set that we received she was so giddy that she did this cute little dance while I was opening it! The set consists of 14 building pieces including Oscars beloved pet Slimy the worm! I dumped the pieces out and she instantly started busily figuring out how to put it together.

Its so great to see her little mind work and know that she is enjoying playing with a character block set that features one of her favorite friends from her favorite show!

I was amazed by how fascinated she was while putting Oscar together.The sets are designed specially for ages 2-5 and The pieces are very toddler friendly and don't require the strength and coordination that some of the competing brands require, yet keep your tots mind and creativity flowing. And what is even better is that once you build Oscar you have endless possibilities of what you can construct with the pieces! Bonus feature: Oscars storage container doubles as Oscars favorite hangout, his trash can!

The Sesame Street K'NEX building sets come in quite a variety. The basic character sets retail at $10.99 and the sets go to $31.99. Such endless possibilities for your little tyke to put their minds to work.

The sets have just launched and are now available for purchase in select stores. Visit to view the entire collection.

Overall this mom gives the K'NEX Sesame Street building sets two thumbs up!

Oh I love trash! Everything dirty and dingy and dusty!

Kinda freaky!
