Angry Birds Space Lightning Bird vs. Frozen Helmet Pig Building Set Review (K'NEX)

What It Is

Kids can build and interact with the Angry Birds Space world with Angry Birds Space Intro Building Sets from K'NEX. The Lightning Bird vs. Frozen Helmet Pig Building Set comes with 28 pieces, including a buildable launcher, a space accessory, and bricks. Lightning Bird and Frozen Helmet Pig figures are also included. Kids can also use the package as part of the structure. Once built, use the launcher to send Lightning Bird flying in an attempt to knock down Frozen Helmet Pig and all the bricks. Attach the two pieces of the launcher into the back of the bird. Pinch the pieces together to send the bird flying.

Is It Fun?

Fans of the Angry Birds Space app will enjoy building their own structures and creating a real-life skill-and-action Angry Birds game. Of course, kids are going to want to play this like the app, but the building set comes with no scoring system. Kids can create their own scoring system if they want to play a game that has winners and losers, but some kids who just like to crash things might enjoy it as it is.

There's a bit of a learning curve with the launcher. It may take some patience and practice to figure out how to angle the launcher so that the bird goes in the direction you want it to and pinch the launcher with enough force to get the bird to go anywhere at all.

Who It’s For

The Lightning Bird vs. Frozen Helmet Pig Building Set is for Angry Birds Space fans ages 5 and up.
