Angry Birds became a huge sensation in our home as well as millions of others as soon as the app hit smartphones. Not only was this a huge hit, Angry Birds is highly addictive, just ask my 11 year old son. He would play for hours if I allowed him to, destroying the bad pigs by launching birds with the slingshot. I admit it is entertaining.
Just like the K’NEX Mario 3DLand set, K’NEX has done it again bringing a very popular game to life with the all new K’NEX Angry Birds Space Hogs on Mars Building Set. This set is much different from any K’NEX building set we have and I’ll explain that in a moment.
The set includes 169 pieces mainly comprised of K’NEX bricks.
You’ll be building two multi-level structures, one where small space pig will sit and the other where the medium space pig will sit. These are simple to build with the included color instruction sheet.
The bricks will stack and eventually you’ll add connector rods and additional K’NEX parts to build the structures.
You will then construct the weapon of destruction; the space slingshot. Once built you’ll be using this to launch lightening bird and Terence at the structures to eliminate the pigs.
This set is a lot of fun and frustrating for the kids. Frustrating because once you slingshot the birds at the structures, the structures collapse, so the children will need to rebuild the structures. Like I said though, they are easy to build and if you don’t want to use the models shown, children can always use their imaginations to build whatever their hearts desire. The kids thought it was really neat how it all came to life being able to play Angry Birds in our living room, just like the game they are so familiar with.
This set works with all K’NEX Angry Birds sets and would make a fun gift for children 7+ that love to build.
