Kre-O Transformers Building Sets – Great for Building Imagination and Fun Ages 7 and Up
Building sets have been a favorite gift of kids for what seems like forever. There’s something about being able to create and build things that can keep kids occupied for long periods of time. The Kre-O Transformer Building Sets are sure to follow that tradition with their great robot character designs.
You might be wondering what Kre-O sets are. Kre-O is Hasbro’s launch into the world of building sets that was up until now dominated by Lego. In fact, Kre-O is compatible with Legos and other similar style blocks. Unlike Lego, many Kre-O sets have multiple ways to build. I had the chance to look at the Street Showdown Set which can be used to build two robots or two racers. According to some other Kre-O experts, Kreons use balljoints in the arms and legs which make for more realistic action. Kre-O also has Battleship and Transformers sets which are unique to the Hasbro line.
There are a lot of small pieces involved in Kre-O sets. That means they are definitely not appropriate for young children as they could definitely be choking hazards. It also takes some pretty well developed fine motor skills to put the pieces together. The recommended age for Kre-O Building Sets is 7-14, but I could see children a little younger using them with supervision and help. I could also definitely see older kids… and even adults building with them too. I have a brother in college that almost got one of these sets for Christmas this year!
