Range Celebrates Win in Creative Resource Category

KID K'NEX Wins Early Years Excellence Award

The Kid K’NEX junior construction range has today been revealed as a winner in the Early Years Excellence Awards, having been granted a 4* rating in the Creative Resource category by a panel of expert judges.

Over 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. This year 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.
