My boys have just gotten into the Knex building toys and let’s just say they are loving them! They are learning in school that sometimes when they struggle, they learn the most so I loved them having to put these together and really have to use problem solving skills. First up is the Turbo Jet 2 in 1 building set. You can build a jet or a heli-plane with rotating propellers. My oldest son put this one together and he has an engineering brain like his dad so he loved putting this together. This was the first set he had ever built that had an actual motor you had to install.
I loved that you can build 2 different things out of one building set so he could go back and forth between the two. It had over 400 parts so it took him a while to put together but he enjoyed every minute of it. I would take him putting this together instead of sitting in front of the tv any day. This was not only fun for him but it built confidence in him that he could put together something as amazing as this set!

Next up is the REVVIN’ RACECAR 2-IN-1 building set. My 7 year old put this one together because he loves cars. With this set you can build a race car or atv. This one has 370 parts so it didn’t take as long as the other one to put together. He also loved that it had a battery-powered motor because it felt like he was building a car from the ground up. It’s amazing how much he felt like he accomplished after putting this set together.
