I have to admit, I've never really 'gotten' the appeal of Angry Birds. It's fast become the best selling App of all time. I'm sure that stat places the game in very good company as far as videogames go in general as well, as that's a pretty gaudy statement.
With that kind of notoriety, the game has absolutely exploded into the physical space with just about every kind of collectable, plush toy, and knick-knack that you can imagine. This new line from K'Nex has the privilege of maybe being the first one that actually makes sense. Since it's a building toy (and therefor a 'knocking down' toy) it fits squarely in with the theme of it's namesake.
