Hatfield, PA – May, 2013 – K’NEX, the only US construction toy company focused on Building Worlds Kids Love®, is thrilled to announce exciting changes for its 14th annual K’NEXpert search, launching May 29, 2013! The K’NEXpert Search challenges young builders to design & submit a creative, original model made entirely from K’NEX parts and are judged on creativity, uniqueness and detail.

For the first time since its launch in 2001, the contest will have 4 grand-prize winners from four different age groups. Age groups include: 5-6 years old; 7-8 years old; 9-11 years old; and 12-14 years old (a new category this year). The four imaginative children who win will each receive a prize package valued at $3,650.

This year, grand prize winners will receive the coolest K’NEXpert prize package yet: $2,500, an iPad Mini™, a $250 gift card to Toys “R” Us®, and a $500 K’NEX credit code good toward a shopping spree at knex.com. An additional eight finalists will each receive a $250 K’NEX credit code good towards a shopping spree at knex.com, a $100 Toys “R” Us gift card and a K’NEX t-shirt.

The K’NEXpert Search runs through August 23, 2013, with winners announced in October. Children can enter using the online entry form found on the K’NEX website, www.knexperts.com. Submissions must include 3 photos of the creation, and a one-minute video or one-page summary describing how the child came up with the idea, how long the design took to build and how many K’NEX pieces were used.

A panel of judges comprised of K’NEX employees will select semi-finalists; an online vote will determine twelve winners and Joe Smith, Senior Vice President of Development at K’NEX, will choose the four Grand Prize Winners.

From masculine toys to, um, not-so-masculine toys, Devall has timelessly put himself aside to review what the people want. Devall also happens to love anything Disney…and Muppets. Yes…don’t forget the Muppets.
