We are loving the new building sets that K'NEX has released (and excited for the sets that will be released in the near future)!  If you want a sneak peek on what K'NEX has to offer, here's a great start

Plants Vs. Zombies K'NEX Building Sets

In a war between plants and zombies, who would win? With the new Plants vs. Zombies K'NEX building sets, you get to decide the outcome! Little builders love to let their imaginations run wild, and the variety of K'NEX building sets feeds all kinds of creativity. Not only are they fun, but it's a great opportunity to work on hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills as well. Whether plants are victorious or the zombies win out, it's sure to be a ton of creative fun. 

Defeat the zombies and save your brains...in the Wild West!  The Plants vs. Zombies Wild West Skirmish Building Set includes 2 Cowboy Zombie figures, 1 Prospector Zombie figure and 1 Peashooter figure plus K'NEX parts to build an area of the Wild West level from Plants vs Zombies 2!  Defeat the zombies using the Peashooter's shooting action.  Seven peas are included with a buildable ammo stand.  Slide the Peashooter back and forth along the track for target practice.
