K’NEX Sesame Street Neighborhood Collection
Believe it or not forty years have passed since Sesame Street debuted on television. It is the primo children’s show of all times as far as I am concerned. It helped my daughter then eventually her brothers who arrived years later counting, the alphabet, and lots more. Its beloved Jim Hensen puppets are still today bigger than life. Everyone recognizes his Muppet creations and their toy counterparts.
I was trying to figure out what to get one of my grandchildren when I saw the K’NEX Sesame Street Neighborhood Collection. These sets are geared towards chioldren ages 2-5 and let children build and then play with their favorite Sesame Street friends, including Elmo, Cookie Monster and Ernie. Now, how many years has Elmo been the holiday shopping gift that is hot? He always is on every little boy and girl’s Christmas list, and I bet this year he will again make it big.
Thanks to Team Mom I received the 123 Brownstone set. This is a toy that can build physical, social-emotional, language, and cognitive development in two to five year olds. Safe, interlocking, sturdy plastic pieces in six primary colors (sorry no purple or black) make it perfect for child’s play. The set retails for $20.99 and ?includes 40 parts, including 2 buildable characters – Elmo and Cookie Monster.
When the kids see it they’ll ?and want it and probably the rest of the Neighborhood Collection. This would make a great gift!
