We received a fun box from Daisy at A Daisy a Day on Saturday. She had written this post telling about some K'nex they had gotten to test. I found the post especially enticing because I have been wanting to get these for Noah for quite awhile now. He LOVES his little legos, so I thought they would be perfect for him.
My friend, Beth, told me that Alex loves them but that they were not compatible with legos and she spent way too much time looking at each little piece to see which set they belonged to. So I was pretty excited when I read Daisy's post saying that they are now compatible. I commented on her post that I thought I would get some for Noah for his birthday now that I don't have to worry about keeping them separated.
This extremely kind woman actually offered to pack them up and send them to us, FREE OF CHARGE because her grandchildren wee too small to enjoy the TRULY TINY pieces as of yet.
The box was here when we got home from the Meijer Gardens on Saturday. I had a picture of Noah with the box, but then realized it had ALL of my personal information on the front. Probably not the BEST idea. Noah ripped it open right away.
He started trying to make something but Steve felt it was necessary to read the directions and make the car that the set was made for.
Now I knew what the result of this would be, but I just let it go, hoping to be proven wrong. But, unfortunately, I wasn't and about two hours later, Noah threw a hissy fit about how the car Daddy made was falling apart and he couldn't fix it. That was when I told him what I wanted to all along, "Just make your own creation". Now he was free to do as he pleased and he made several "robots"
And Aaron made a "flower"
So this post is mostly for Daisy, who made a little boy so happy this weekend that he slept with his creations under his pillow and took them to school with him this morning for Mystery Bag (his class' version of show and tell). Thank you for your kindness.
