Designed to move fun-powered imaginations of boys and girls forward, K'NEX knows a child's journey to wow begins with a single click! K'NEX has offered STEAMagination inspired play to kids through creative building toys for a quarter of a century.
When Joel Glickman invented these creative engineering building toys, he didn’t initially set out to design an educational construction toy; his goal was to show a kid that the only limit to building was his or her imagination. K’NEX prides itself on connecting Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math with imagination. STEAMagination can be found in every K’NEX set, and with it, boys and girls building dreams become a fun-powered, 3-D reality! Winner of over 400 awards and recognitions, the K’NEX product line has building toys specially designed for boys and girls in every age group and skill level, which includes roller coaster building sets, preschool engineering toys, and STEM toys for kids.
At a time when most toys are made overseas, K’NEX is committed to American design and manufacturing—all of its rods and connectors are made in Hatfield, PA at an eco-friendly manufacturing facility.
Educate and excite your children with STEM toys, the building blocks for their future success in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
