The Kid K'NEX Farmyard Friends Building Set, succeeded with our young testers for whom other building toys had become stale. This K'NEX set has completely revived their love of all things building block. One has played with it steadily since the box was opened, and it follows him everywhere. He takes it in the tub, in the car, to the dinner table and, yes, to bed (although his mom makes him set up whatever he has created on his nightstand and not in his bed).

The combination of Ferris wheel shapes, fan shapes, connector poles of various lengths, animal parts, and LEGO-style blocks have meant endless fun for children. Even those who rarely create the farm animals shown on the box have a blast. Parents only wish that the set came with more pieces.
