Holiday Toy Picks: K’NEX- Made in the USA + Great Reviews!
It’s Christmas time that means you will be seeing a ton of reviews and deals on toys. I have to admit that when it comes to reading reviews, I just can’t get enough. Why am I going to spend our family’s money on toys that will just break. Today you will see K’Nex featured on PA Live in the Bargain Mom Segment. Let me tell you my favorite thing about K’Nex product (besides my kids loving them), K’NEX Brands, L.P. , a privately held company, is located in Hatfield, Pennsylvania where it proudly manufactures 90% of pieces used in K’NEX Building Sets! Yes right here in the USA!
The quality of the products, educational value and entertainment keeps me purchasing K’Nex products. These sets require kids to think about building and have fun playing with the work they spent time creating. On today’s show, which I will share a clip once it goes live) features some of the hottest toys of the year including Angry Bird Sets!
Small confession- My son has been playing with the KNEX Angry Birds Hammin Around for weeks now and I really thought it would be cool to show the set live in the segment. I tried for 10 minutes and gave up because I didn’t have the patience to put together what my 6 year old was able to to do. Next time I will have to bring my son with me to build the set)
Finally, I wanted to share some of the giveaways. K’NEX has partnered with Philadelphia Eagles and have a few great sweepstakes in motion that are open ONLY to PA, NJ, and DE residents, perhaps your readers will be interested in them? Info is below:

I am going to have my son guess and try to win! I think it will be neat for him to see how close he can get to the number of pieces.
