I love the idea behind all the various construction sets that are on the market, like Lego, Duplo and Megabloks. They allow for fantastic fine motor development for young children and get the imagination juices flowing, allowing for hours of fun and entertainment. Both for young and old. Kre-O blocks from Hasbro take the construction set building to a whole new. I love that with the above set, two items can be made: a vehicle and Transformer character. The only thing that would have upped the ante is if there would have been a way to actually convert. The Kre-O pieces are similar in size to the small Lego pieces, so perfect for children over seven years (could be a potential choking hazard for those under). The packaging is attractive and appealing, without being overpowering and also the product is very reasonable in price, comparable to Lego.
Overall, I highly recommend this product and give it a huge thumbs up. A perfect gift idea for all children in your life this Christmas shopping season.
BUY IT: You can purchase Kre-O Construction Sets are your favorite toy retailer, such as Wal-Mart and Toys R Us
