    I received the TinkerToy Vehicles Building Set to review with my 3 year old Josh from K'Nex. You can create different vehicles with this set using the very simple illustrations/directions included. I absolutely love the Tinker Toy Vehicles Building Set for two reasons, they include Tinker Toys (a favorite toy from my own childhood) and this is a building toy that I was actually able to figure out. Usually when it comes to building toys and "boy" toys I find the directions to complicated to follow and leave it up to my husband to play with the boys. So I was thrilled when I sat down with Josh and was able to help him build two different vehicles! And K'NEx got it right with this set, it is very age-appropriate for a three year old, some toys are recommended for ages three and up but are actually a little too hard for a three year old to play with. K'Nex products have been around since 1992 and are very popular with parents and teachers .We love K'Nex at our house and I highly recommend their products including the TinkerToy Vehicle Building Set which can be purchased for $27.99 at the K'Nex website HERE.
