What’s So Fun about K’NEX Toys?
K’NEX is a line of toys developed based on the idea by Joel Glickman. The toys can be put together and is like an entire system of interlocking plastic rods and connectors. They can be pieced up to build all kinds of things that replicate real life objects, from machines to architectural structures.
K’NEX building toys are for children aged 5 and up (as recommended), but there are many older children who take on K’NEX as their favourite hobby. The only limit to doing amazing things with K’NEX is the imagination.
How K’NEX Came to Be
Joel Glickman got the idea from plastic straws. He wondered how he would be able to connect the straws with each other. He eventually developed a system of plastic rods and connectors that would become what we now know as the K’NEX brand of building toys.
Other parts like pulleys, wheels, and gears were introduced later to allow young builders some flexibility with the items that they put together.
Today, K’NEX is associated with some licensed brands, enabling them to make more themed playsets that will thrill kids to the max. The brand now includes IMAGINE Building Sets, Thrill Rides, K’NEX Education®, Kid K’NEX®, and the LINCOLN LOGS® and TINKERTOY® which are both licensed by Hasbro.
The company continues to partner with other licensees to create products that are recognisable to children including (but not limited to) Angry Birds and Super Mario Kart.
