Building outside the box with Core K’Nex | AD Review

Note - This item was sent to us for review but all opinions are honest and our own. 

Toys that stand the test of time are the best kind of toys in my opinion. K'Nex is a brand that has been around since I was little and is something that I have fond memories of playing as a child. Anyone else remember the huge K'Nex Ferris wheel set you could get that moved and everything? Well K'Nex is still loved by children today and my kids are no exception. So when we were asked if we wanted to try one of the new building sets we jumped at the chance. 

Now first things first...boy has K'Nex got amazing since we were little! The set we were sent was the K'Nex K-Force Battle Bow Building set which has a RP of £24.99. This set is not just K'Nex...oh no... it is also a bow and arrow! Pickle thought it was incredible that he was actually able to build his own functioning bow and arrow set that fired real (well foam) bullets. 

We followed the step by step manual that came in the pack to make the bow but you can let your imagination run wild as there are 165 pieces to choose from. The manual give you the chose of 4 different blasters and targets that you can make 1 at a time meaning that the fun never ends. The set includes:

  • 5 soft foam darts
  • a blaster chamber
  • a quick fit grip
  • a preload ring
  • 2 dart holders
The set is amazing for budding builders who want the independence of being able to build something fun and useable. It encourages hand-eye co-ordination, fine motor skills and problem solving skills. 

All of my boys (hubby included!) loved this set and spent ages building different blasters and trying them out. Personally I think the £24.99 price tag is incredible value as there is so much that you can do with the set. I would definitely recommend it if you are looking for something for a child that enjoys building and loves anything that shoots!
