I found a fantastic deal at My Outlet Store. Get the K’Nex Classics 50 model building set for only $17.10, with a regular price of $45. It is on sale for $19, but add the coupon code CARDSWAP to get another 10% off ($1.90) and get it for $17.10. This coupon code will work for anything in store as well.
This set is really cool and I think I’m going to get it for my little building children. I have been looking at K’Nex sets for a while but the price has really been putting me off. Not this time! This set is also perfect for creating what you want, rather than a defined object. I’m not big on buying my kids sets that have them build exactly as the instructions say, for a variety of reasons. First off, that doesn’t let them be creative. Even when I do buy sets, they do what they want with them rather than build what they “should”. Second, they lose so many pieces, so why not have a set that if you lost a piece, it won’t render the whole thing useless.
There are 700 pieces in this set and 50 building ideas, in case your child does want some instruction on what to build. You could build things like a hot air balloon, sand castle, lighthouse, creatures from the sea and so much more. It says it is for age 7 and up, but I know my three-year-old would be very happy with this set.
You will have to add $4.95 for shipping, but the price is still way lower than any other store.
