I tested the Mighty Makers (K’Nex), and this is a building toy that allows you to make two separate houses. There are 433 pieces of all sizes and colors. The houses, when built, were 18 inches to 24 inches. This is a really fun toy that lets you create and decorate homes. The pieces are interlocking and easy to use. The directions were slightly difficult, but could be followed if you paid attention. The houses had cool details like shutters, doors, windows and furniture. It comes with two small dolls. The toy teaches about architecture.
