GamerFitNation had a chance to stop by the Knucklestrutz booth at Salt Lake Comic Con FanX 2014 and talk to Charlie Gerome about this innovative toy. This construction toy, unlike LEGOs or K’NEX, allows for a different kind of building. The way the pieces connect together let its users create moving parts like axles and pivots or stick with the traditional stationary pieces.

“Most construction toys are very static,” Gerome said. “We wanted to build more movement into it.”

With their toy, Knucklestrutz is “just trying to build the imagination, allow kids to truly develop stuff and engineer it themselves on a higher level,” Gerome said.

The toys come in kits that allow users to create trucks, planes, and even a suspension bridge that can support 50 lbs. The Knucklestrutz booth had models of the TARDIS and USS Enterprise as well.

Do you think that this toy could change the way kids play? Let us know in the comments below!
