This week, Charlotte and I played with a Sesame Street K'NEX building set. We received a box featuring Elmo's World and his piano building set. The Sesame Street K'NEX series is the first aimed at the 2-5 year old crowd. Though Charlotte is a little bit younger than that, I didn't find any of the pieces too small for her mouth or hands.
As a matter of fact, the pieces fit comfortably together, to the point that Charlotte could put them together and take them apart with out much trouble. She wasn't able to build the piano set, or the Elmo duck, fish, or dog following the directions that came with it, but she did have fun pretending to play Elmo's piano. Music is one of our new signs and it was a good chance to practice it with her.
It was also fun to see that Charlotte liked to try and wear Elmo's blue hat. Hat is a sign she has known for a while and today really proved to me that she knew what hats were. Now, we just need to work on the eyes in the back of her head.
To heighten the play experience and further children's growth and development, each set includes engaging and interactive educational content such as tips for parents and fun activity cards for kids, as well as lots of building ideas.They also have sets featuring Super Grover, Cookie Monster, Abby Cadabby, Bert & Ernie, Hooper's Store, and Oscar the Grouch. They should be available on shelves later this month. The prices are reasonable too, starting at $10.99 for a 14-15 piece set and moving all the way up to $31.99 for 80-piece sets.
Now your tots and toddlers can create their very own versions of their favorite Sesame characters – so cute. Check them out by visiting the K'NEX website.

I have contacted Lisa and Dana via e-mail and they have until Thursday to get back to me with their contact information. This just shows that blogging about my giveaways for an extra entry can really pay off!
