CSC Review and Giveaway: K’nex goes to Sesame Street

0 Comments 01 October 2008

This contest is now CLOSED. Please see our Contests page for the latest giveaways on Chic Shopper Chick!

“Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Streeeeeettttttttt?” Oh I just used to LOVE to hear that song! I adored Sesame Street as a child, and I love that this educational program is one that is still around to educate MY daughter in the same way that I was. I loved Big Bird the most, but that was before the Elmo craze really hit. I’ve got to admit that even now, I love Elmo’s voice. I know that it won’t be long before Little AG discovers Sesame Street on TV, and it will be a show that I won’t resist her watching because of it’s fantastic educational component.

Oh, and I can’t resist quickly sharing this photo of our local (but fantastic) meterologist who I just feels like resembles the Count. Every time he does the weather, I feel like he should say, “Tomorrow the temperature will be 79! 79! Aah! Aah!” (How great would that be?)

Ok, I’ll be serious now. Well, I’ll try, at least. Thanks to Team Mom, I recently got a blast from my Sesame Street past when my daughter received a Sesame Street Building Set to review! It is perfect for her because she falls at the lower end of the age range (2 to 5) and is just starting to show interest in putting things together and using more of her creative side. We were so excited to see that we had received the Elmo K’nex set — and my daughter had a blast giggling with Elmo and this fun set. The best thing about it is that it includes three educational “Play & Learn” activity cards that are meant to be enjoyed by parent and child together. One side of the card features alternate building ideas; the other side includes fun facts and activity suggestions. Our set included 47 pieces, which would normally give me a headache, but thankfully K’nex included the storage container with the playset, which makes it easy to clean up the fun neatly when playtime is over.

The sets come in different options – there are the smaller sets for tiny builders that include 14-15 pieces each. They retail for $10.99. There is the Super Grover and Abby Cadabby set that include 30 parts and retail for $14.99. There are the 46 piece sets which include the Elmo’s World Set and the Bert and Ernie Set that retail for $21.99. Lastly, there is the ultimate Sesame Street building experience — the Cookie Monster and Hooper’s Store Building Set which includes 80 pieces and retails for $31.99. All sets are being released for the first time this month — just in time for Christmas!
