And when I say “we” I mean not me at all. Just my kids and my husband. Because when it comes to building toys that consist of a million little pieces, I am never allowed in on the fun.
My kids and I all love the PopCap game for both computer and iPad. I’m pretty sure the kids beat both games already, while I’m still trying to grow my gold plant on version 1.
Kyle was more into building it, and then left it alone. Brady, the 7-year-old who loves imaginary play, battles his “guys” against each other, took to this toy instantly. Also a fan of projectiles, he enjoyed shooting the real-life pea shooter over and over…and over…again.
The set we played with is supposed to look like the Wild West level of the game, but my kids never put the included stickers on it. They just built it and ran.
This is the first K’NEX set I have ever had, either as a child or a parent, and I was pleased. I was amazed by this physical manifestation of an imaginary world we have seen only in the computer and iPad.
The little zombie guys are so spot on! And something new (to me at least) that this toy brings to life is the “shooting gallery” in which you can actually shoot a pea at a target.
I just wish more peas came with this set!
