Angry Birds Hammin’ Around
K’Nex Angry Birds Hammin’ Around includes: Red Bird, Orange Bird, King Pig, Small Minion Pig, Medium Minion Pig, Bonus Ham, working launcher, and enough building pieces to construct and demolish again and again.

Take Angry Birds Offline
Set the iPad® down, slide the smartphone back into your pocket, and let your child experience physics in a more concrete way with his hands.

Physics Phun for Pheathered Phowl
The Angry Birds app, with its noble-yet-enraged birds, seems to use the laws of gravity to exact high-impact revenge on those haughty green hogs. But according to Rhett Allain, an associate professor of physics at Southeastern Louisiana University, the science behind the Angry Birds app is far from reality. New K’Nex Angry Birds Hammin’ Around is here to change that.

Build Angry Birds with K'Nex Rods and Bricks
Each K'Nex Angry Birds kit allows you to actually build a level from the Angry Birds app using both classic K'Nex rod pieces and their new Lego-compatible bricks. An actual working K'Nex launcher imparts the initial velocity to the bird and gets it flying. While the Angry Birds app seems to ignore the friction due to air resistance, with K’Nex Angry Birds Hammin’ Around your child will be forced to consider that reality as he plots the demise of the pigs hiding in their remarkably ramshackle structures. And long before he can verbalize it, your child will be studying how the mass of a bird and the bird's velocity impact how much collision energy will be absorbed.

Understand Physics Through Engaging Play
But the fun doesn't have to stop there. K'Nex blocks are compatible with virtually all construction bricks, so dump out that drawer full of Legos and challenge your children to concoct even more elaborate levels. K’Nex Angry Birds Hammin’ Around is an excellent example of how to use engaging play to understand physics.

    Endless building and playing fun! January 15, 2013
    Reviewer: AJ  
    My Son LOVES working with His hands, and is obsessed with Angry Birds. This was perfect for my imaginative little architect! He has so much fun building - and rebuilding - and making it into a game.

    Great for all of my children! January 14, 2013
    Reviewer: JenZ  
    This was purchased as a gift for my 5 year old son. He has really enjoyed it! It was easy enough for him to put together without help, which is a fun thing for him since he often needs help with putting together sets from other companies. His older siblings have enjoyed playing with him - I think any game where you can shoot projectiles is going to be fun for them, especially for the boys! He and my other children have played the Angry Birds game on my phone occasionally, so they were familiar with the way it works. It seems that they enjoy this at least as much as the game on the phone, if not more, because they can set things up in their own way.
