Ice Cream Truck Building Set
I have a brother who’s three years younger than me. We each had our own toys. I tended to stick with the “girly” things while he, of course, had toys that were specific to boys. I do remember playing with some of his toys that were geared for construction and building – where one could really get creative and use their imagination.
Now that I have grandchildren, I can see how time have changed, somewhat, and now many toys are “unisex” and this change has even taken place since my own daughters where little.
Recently I had the opportunity to review the Ice Cream Truck Building Set from the Sesame Street Neighborhood Collection Building Set from K’NEX.
K’NEX is the next generation of construction sets and while inspiriting creativity, building self-confidence and encouraging interaction among children and their parents.
The Sesame Street Neighborhood Collection Building Sets encourage children to build and then play with their favorite Sesame Street friends, including Elmo, Cookie Monster and Ernie.
- 18 pieces to build Elmo and his ice cream truck!
- Includes “Play & Learn” activity sheet featuring educational and fun activities designed specifically for preschoolers and their parents.
This 18-piece building set pairs perfectly with the Neighborhood Collection 1-2-3 Brownstone Building Set. Look for all the Neighborhood Collection Building Sets so your child can build his own!

As a grandmom, I always looked for toys that would promote physical development and cognitive development for their birthdays or Christmas holiday season. Since Sesame Street is celebrating it’s 40th Anniversary, the Elmo, Cookie Monster and Ernie are easily recognizable, and what kid isn’t excited by an ice cream truck!
The classic activities are designed to help preschoolers like ‘Lil Moomette, age 3 and Slugger, age 1 to learn to count, recognize colors and identify shapes.
Recommended Ages: 2-5
Available at: Walmart, Target and Amazon and Toys R US
