Exciting Made-in-the-USA Building Sets Encourage Kids to Use Their STEAMagination™

Made in the USA: K'NEX 70 Model Building Set

“We’ve learned that the more items we are able to manufacture at home, the more people we can employ. If every American were to spend just $64 a year on things Made in the USA, 200,000 new jobs would be created,” said Michael Araten, President & of K’NEX

In a day and age when most toys are made overseas, K’NEX Brands, the construction toy company where creativity clicks™, is committed to making toys in the USA! And what better time is there than now to buy your child an American made Christmas gift?

Designed to move fun-powered imaginations forward, 100% of K’NEX® rods and connectors are manufactured in Hatfield, PA. K’NEX also manufactures real wood logs for LINCOLN LOGS® building sets, and plastic rods and spools for TINKERTOY® building sets, under license from Hasbro, both of which are made in Maine and Pennsylvania, respectively.

K’NEX prides itself on connecting Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math with imagination. STEAMagination can be found in every K’NEX set and with it building dreams become a fun-powered, 3-D reality! K’NEX builders learn valuable concepts that are vital to life-long success, and in a day and age in which STEM jobs are increasing faster than non-STEM jobs, the need for educated and excited workers is ever-growing!

“We’ve learned that the more items we are able to manufacture at home, the more people we can employ. If every American were to spend just $64 a year on things Made in the USA, 200,000 new jobs would be created,” said Michael Araten, President & CEO of K’NEX. “Spending our dollars on Made in the USA goods enables our whole economy to get stronger and with that our whole country becomes stronger. You just have to take that extra second and look at the label. Together, we can build a better America.”

K’NEX is also an active member of American Made Matters, an organization whose mission is to educate consumers about buying US-made products to help strengthen the American Dream.
