K'Nex, the world's most creative creative construction and building toys recently sent me their new Mission Mayhem Building Set for children ages 5 and up. While I was researching K'Nex I found the video above about K'nex and was surprised to discover these great toys are manufactured in Montgomery County, PA not too far from me, you can watch the video to learn more about this great company.
The K'nex Mission Mayhem set is based on characters from the Angry Birds game, my kiddos love Angry Birds so they were pretty excited when this set came. Here is a description of the set from K'Nex:

We opened up the box and started in building with the boys. Constructing the catapult took a little effort but after the first time putting it together my oldest son John had it down pat and caught on easily. One of my favorite things about this K'nex set is it has a two-fold purpose, the kids build with it and when they are done building they actually have a game to play with. I think their favorite feature is the catapult and launching it. And I am not sure who enjoys it more, the boys or my husband. Like all K'Nex products this is well constructed, creative and affordably priced at $30.99. And the best part? You can use this set with other K'Nex Angry Birds sets. You can purchase the Angry Birds Mission Mayham Set online from K'Nex HERE and at Amazon.
