K'NEX Dueling Racers
Sarah from Child's Play Communications emailed and asked if I'd be interested in reviewing a K'NEX product sample. Since I have a little boy who loves race cars of any kid, I asked her to send me the Dueling Racers set!

What I didn't realize until we received the product was that this set is geared for children 7+. Snuggle Bug is 3 years old. Believe me, this was no problem.

Ends up, Oronzo is a 7 year old boy trapped in a 40 year old body! He was really excited when this product arrived and he had these motorized race cars assembled in no time flat! He waited until Snuggle Bug was in bed to get started and then spent a considerable amout of time "testing them out" for Snuggle Bug.

The next morning, Snuggle Bug discovered them sitting on the kitchen table and jumped up and down with glee, asking to play with them. He and Oronzo had a blast playing with these battery operated race cars, inside and outside the house.

I'd highly recommend this product to any of you with children 7+, or with husbands who like kids toys as much as your kids do!

K'NEX has a lot of other neat educational products for kids. I encourage you to check out their website to learn more.

Have you tried the kid k'nex (for much younger children?) Little Bun loved them at four and insisted on buying them as birthday gifts for all his friends.
