K’nex Angry Bird Sets

TOMY sent us three of these fabulous building sets.  Eldest was in his element completing the epic build alongside daddy.  It is an activity that can comfortably fill a morning, scheduling time to make the sets and then knocking them down again and again!  Eldest took a little time to refine his targeting skills, but soon got the hang of it, he felt huge satisfaction when he managed to knock off the pesky Pig figures.

Eldest was saying I am ready to “annihilate” them.  Which was quite an impressive word to be using at that time in the morning!  Eldest especially liked the space theme of the Crater Crash set; in the video below showing play with the set he mentions Pig in an air bubble is like a real astronaut.

I am impressed with how easy the launcher is to use, just pinch and off the Angry Bird whizzes through the air!  Youngest was managing to play too, he is 4 and it is a 5+ set, I think this is due to the complexity of the build.  But the instructions are very detailed and descriptive.  I just found hubbie is more technical then me so him and eldest got the set up a lot quicker than I ever would have.  I would not let under 3’s play though as some of the pieces are quite small and youngest has only just passed through his everything in the ear, nose, mouth stage!

We also had the Mission May’ham set; I love the play on the word ham with the Pig characters.  Plenty of challenge with each of the sets, you could combine them and build something completely spectacular, your child does not need to follow the instructions they could build a unique and exciting set of their own imagination.  It really helps extend play.

Our final set was the Yellow Bird Vs. Medium Minion Pig, which was more of an introduction building set, and I think quite portable.  Very handy to take away on holiday so your children can practise their aiming skills without the need for much in the way of building.  You even use the box it came in to balance the Pig and egg on!
