K’NEX Sesame Street Neighborhood Building Set

The K’NEX Sesame Street Neighborhood Collection Set toys inspire creativity and encourage interaction among children and parents - allowing children to build and play with their favorite Sesame Street friends Elmo, Cookie Monster and Ernie.

K’NEX offers four individual sets to choose from and are designed to coordinate so you can build your very own neighborhood - other Sesame Street Neighborhood Building Sets are:

  • Ice Cream Truck Building Set – works with the 1-2-3 Brownstone Building Set
  • Police Car Building Set – works with the Police Station Building Set
  • 1-2-3 Brownstone Building set
  • Police Station Building Set

What so great about these toys is that each set comes with a Play & Learn activity sheet for preschoolers and parents which features educational and fun activities.  The activities included in each set help preschoolers learn to count, recognize colors and identify shapes.

The Sesame Street Building sets offer physical, social, emotional, language and cognitive skill development benefits:

  • Building supports the development of hand-eye coordination
  • Encourages imaginative play
  • Sorting and creating patterns builds thinking and problem-solving skills
  • It also enhances your child’s language skills by having them talk about what they have created.

Appropriate for children ages 2-5, they building sets come with lots of big chunky parts so children can build and rebuild over and over again as additional building ideas are included in each set for endless hours of playing.

Sets retail anywhere from $9.99 to $19.99. Buy online at K'NEX.
