Junior construction range granted 4* rating in Creative Resource category by judges.

Kid KNex awardOver 300 products, services, and publications were nominated for the awards, run by Teach Early Years Magazine, and whittled down to a 65-strong shortlist of finalists in March. An expert panel of early years leaders, consultants, and authors then selected just 38 winners, including Kid K’Nex, across a variety of categories.

Kid K’Nex introduces construction play to children aged 3+, supporting their cognitive development with sets that feature chunky, brightly coloured pieces. The range proved so popular in early years educational settings that it is now available at retail for the first time. Later in 2017 the line will be refreshed with new items including animal and wheel inspired sets, plus the Kid K’Nex Budding Builders Tub with 100 pieces and 50 building ideas.
