Customer Reviews

War games.Decent quality. I imagine there are tons of things that could be built out of these. I bought this for my son, when he was 8 or 9. He never opened it. Because it lacks the need for electricity. It doesn t have an app. It s not fun for today s youth.UNLESS..... you also have a 2 or 3 year old! These kids thought outside the box of societies norms and built a no mans land in the hallway. They put Rambo to shame in booby traps. The hallway, wee hours of the am, strategically placed pieces of this engineering toy turned into products of utter destruction that made lego s a walk in the park. They maximized the effect by also placing a piece in their mouth for a full on choking effect which had me waking up out of a dead sleep, springing from bed at a dark and cold 7am to sprint through the house in my boxers. Only to open my bedroom door and meet my maker as the first pieces ripped through the bottoms of my feet.This was a war plan formulated by the best war general as my screams of pain and asking Jesus why drew my wife and older kids out of bed into no mans land before I could yell to leave me and save themselves.A simple broom is all it took to ruin the no mans land they formed, but not before the blood of their own family was shed in the hallway, an obvious (yet unsuspecting) choke point.So. I won t ever buy this product of torture again. And my two toddlers are enlisting in special forces asap. 3PROs and CONsMixed review. A great deal of assembly to demonstrate each simple machine. If you want a fun kit to assemble it's great. If you just want to just demonstrate simple machines, the kit requires too much work. My 7 year old could easily follow the color coded parts. His finger got tired snapping in the many pieces. The smaller pieces were difficult to disconnect. I had difficulty "playing" the enclosed Teacher's Guide DVD. It's actually a digital text that would only load on one of my several devices. 4Gray connectors warpedThis was great until all the gray pieces' middle sections warped apart enough to not hold other pieces anymore, so basically nothing in the booklet can be constructed anymore. And we have only done K'Nex projects every other week or so -- it's not like we've been using them strenuously or anything. My kids and I are pretty disappointed that most of the play value is gone due to those gray connectors. 3Challenging and awesome!An amazing and challenging engineering toy! My five-year-old and her dad built the crank fan, which uses gears, in just a couple of hours. The pieces are easy to snap together, and the instructions don't dumb anything down -- you really have to work your spatial reasoning skills and examine the diagrams to assemble the machines in stages. Of course, we are that homeschooling family that throws away the Lego set instructions... so if you want explicit and simple written (as opposed to visual) instructions, Knex might be get little frustrating. For us, they're a wonderful challenge! 5Great for science classI purchased these for my classroom. They are easy to assemble and disassemble. The only down side to this specific kit is that there are only enough pieces to make one project at a time. 5Food for the growing mindThese do for a modern youngster what Tinker Toys did for my generation. They provide entertainment and a feel for physics and design and an opportunity to exercise both imagination and patience to see a project through. They provide opportunity to develop manual dexterity. Pride of accomplishment and confidence also comes with a box of K'nex parts. Instructions actually work. Everyone ought to know when to follow them and that lesson is inside the box too When enough of these little plastic parts lie in a pile, the young imagination is set loose among the resources that can make the imagined thing become real. Get your children some of these and throw out the video games. 5FantasticI got this set for my homeschooled 10 year old daughter who was learning physics this year for science. The designs included were very relevant to her lessons and are regular objects which made it more interesting for her. At first she had some issues with getting the pieces to fit together, but once she figured it out there were no issues. Each design took about 30-45 minutes to put together and directions were easy to follow. She got a kick out of the fact all the cranks really work. This turned out to be much better than I anticipated which makes me very happy. It's a product that can last since she'll happily rebuild the 7 suggested designs and she's working on coming up with some of her own. I'm happy the quality if good and the case it comes in will help keep all the pieces together so my younger daughter can use them when she's ready. 5Fun and educationalThis kit has a fun variety of projects, all with satisfyingly realistic results. And for once an "educational" toy actually had clear educational value, prompting the kids to make a change in the project and then observe the difference and draw a conclusion. (I really should get out the CD-ROM that came with this and see what additional gems it has!)My 5yo was able to complete the projects with minimal help (just in figuring out how to join completed portions together), while my 7yo could follow the directions completely independently. The two-speed fan is a definite favorite in this house! 5This is very fun, a little too difficult for my 7 year ...This is very fun, a little too difficult for my 7 year old to build without help though as some pieces are difficult to snap together. I wish there were more pieces so that I could build several of the machines at the time. In conjunction with other K'NEX sets that I had though, I could build three at a time. My two boys (ages 7 and 5) especially like the egg beater. 4Great ProductI really liked these for the price and my kids loved putting them together. I bought them to go with our physics study and right away my kids wanted to put them together. The book has really easy to put together instructions, simple enough for my children to understand. The pieces are nice and durable of course you can't be too hard on them, but overall durable. I loved all the projects they could build. The pieces are all stored in a nice plastic container with an easy to get on and off lid. I will be buying more of these to use for everyday, as well as, educational in our homeschooling. Great product! 5
