Christmas Gift Idea for Preschools - K'Nex Sesame Street Neighborhood Collection

Recently I was able to review K'Nex The Sesame Street Neighborhood Collection with my children. They loved it!

The K'nex Sesame Street Neighboorhood Collection lets kid's build and then play with their favorite Sesame Street pal, including Elmo, Cookie Monster and Ernie. There are 4 individual sets to choose from and kids can build and rebuild over and over again.

They are retailed at $9.99 - $19.99 and at those prices you can get them the whole neighborhood.

We received this one.

My daughter happened to be home sick this day with a stomach virus and this made her day.

When I asked her to pose with the box she had no problem at all.Obviously!

Feeling much better, she proceed to build. She tried to copy what was on the box and got something like it but not quite. Then she asked me to do it for her. She was happy with that and played until her brother got home from school. Then they took it apart and made Elmo and Ernie robots. They received it over 8 days ago and have played with it everyday alone and together. They are even asking for the other sets.

The box says it is good for 2-5 year olds but my son is 6.5 and is still in love with Sesame Street.

For a safe, fun, colorful way for children to play with characters they love and are comfortable with I highly suggest K'Nex.

K'nex isn't only for the littlest kids on your list. Check out the kits they have for the older builders on your holiday list.

Thanks to Team Mom for this really fun opportunity!

  1. Great review, and the kids look adorable as usual. My grandson loves blocks and these are great for little hands. I've been thinking a lot about Sesame Street lately because of the 40th anniversary, and I think this is a terrific set to get for my grandson because him mom is our age so I know that she also watched it like we did.

    Your kids are so cute. My niece would love that set. I babysit a little boy and this would make a great Christmas gift for him too.
