This summer KID K'NEX will expand their product line with a brand-new series of play sets featuring the lovable Muppets of "Sesame Street". KID K'NEX products allow kids to build a world of fun and imaginative characters. Each "Sesame Street" play set set will include colorful, oversized building pieces that will allow you to construct and recreate your favorite "Sesame Street" character (or use your imagination to mix-and-match part to create your own unique creature).
The series will launch with five new KID K'NEX building sets. The basic building sets include "Abby Cadabby", "Bert & Ernie", "Grover/Super Grover", "Cookie Monster & Hooper's Store", and "Elmo and his piano". Aside from just the standard character parts, each set also includes accessories and fun activity cards featuring additional building ideas and character variations that can be constructed with the parts.
K'NEX is also planning to release an accompanying series of "Sesame Street" Lid Kids canister – including "Oscar the Grouch", "Cookie Monster", "Elmo", and "Ernie". Each Lid Kids canister features the colorful, oversized, easy-snap KID K'NEX pieces in a fun-faced container. These uniquely packed sets also include fun stickers and an educational activity sheet along with all the nessesary character building pieces. Each canister will be released with a suggested retail price of just $10.99.
The first wave of "Sesame Street" KID K'NEX building sets will be available in July 2008 at retail stores nationwide. KID K'NEX building sets are designed for children ages 2-5 years. I will keep you updated as information on these exciting and creative new toys continues to surface.
