Miss M and Miss K are so dramatically different. One likes gadgets, electronics and zombies. The other likes dolls and princesses and taking care of nature. I often mention how we regularly see movies… Animated movies, aliens, science-fiction, superheroes and action. We aren’t afraid to take them to PG-13 movies but we are careful about which ones. If it is something unrealistic like aliens we know it’s okay because they are mature enough to know it is just a story. We took them to see World War Z last year and were surprised at the reaction. Miss M loved it while Miss K said it gave her nightmares. Miss M wanted to take a summer camp course entitled Zombie Apocalypse. Miss K wanted nothing else to do with zombies.
Until she received K’NEX Plants vs Zombies Wild West Skirmish set. THOSE kind of zombies are perfectly okay. Especially when you get to shoot them and knock them over. First you have to put them together so you CAN knock them down.
In true K’NEX fashion as they have done with the other K’NEX sets before this, they set off to assemble it. Working toward one end goal has been a good experience for our girls. They take turns reading the instructions and putting the pieces together.
When it comes to assembling these sets they share when there are multiples of one type. They divide those pieces so each can put together some.
The only difficulty they had was with the actual zombies. One of the features is to attach them to the platform so you can shoot them back off when you are playing.
They couldn’t get the zombies to stay in place. That caused a lot of frustration with them but once I helped them they were fine. Once the entire set was assembled and put in place, the zombies didn’t stand a chance. I think Miss K took out all her zombie anger on those little K’NEX figures! Revenge on the zombies!
