At a Glance

Ages: 9 and up
Requires: 2 AA batteries
Over 1500 Pieces
The popular K'NEX building system uses a variety of connectors to combine sturdy plastic rods. Pieces are color coded based on their shape, and elements like gears and working motors help put creations into action. This collection of more than 1500 K'NEX pieces provides everything needed to begin having fun right away. Since the best part of K'NEX is the creative construction process, no parental assembly is required. Simply use a coin to slip two new AA batteries (not included) into the motor before an invention is ready to utilize power.

This set comes with an oversized booklet offering step-by-step instructions for assembling the Sawblade Thrill Ride, a daring structure with two spinning wheels that's over four feet tall. Even though colored illustrations make these instructions easy to follow, the Sawblade is a large, complicated ride, and even the most accomplished builders will be proud when they finish construction and set the motor spinning for the first time.

Imagine, Build, Play
Like any building toy, this K'NEX set isn't limited by the model in the instructions. Anything kids can dream up, they can make from K'NEX. Of course, it isn't always easy. Geometry and physics play a role in the way a structure stands and moves, adding an educational component to each building session. And by fostering attention to detail along with creative problem solving skills, building toys like K'NEX encourage kids to be thoughtful and innovative.

With plenty of pieces for more than one budding architect, K'NEX offer a way for kids to connect with each other, too. Friends and siblings can put their heads together to cooperatively construct a spectacular building or vehicle, or they can divvy up the parts and compete to see who comes up with the most unbelievable new thing.

The Possibilities Are Endless
Stumped trying to come up with something to build? Or do you simply think a ride called the Swinging Rocket sounds super cool? Go to knex.com online and download instructions for alternate builds using the pieces in this set.

If your child is prepared for a bigger challenge, you can combine the Sawblade Thrill Ride with other sets for even more versatility. K'NEX building systems featuring other unbelievable thrill rides, speedy vehicles, and tubs full of useful parts are entirely compatible with the pieces in this set. All those little connectors can be difficult to keep track of, but the thrill of creation makes it worthwhile.

What's in the Box
1555 building pieces, including a K'NEX motor, and an instruction booklet.

That tells me the instructions are very intuitive.

It took him a few days to assemble, which was fun for him, and when it was done, it ran perfectly.

As an oldster tinker toys is what comes to mind when I first introduced to K-Nex. This is a much superior product as the pieces stay assembled and functions as the real word you can apply lateral stress and realize the same failure you might find in a real world structure . This is for an advanced nine year old or adult involvement is necessary the simpler model sets are better to introduce a child to K-nex as the plans are sight driven . see replicate. some pieces hard to snap together is why they hold together so well.

After recieving this toy for Christmas, my son immideiatly opened the box and put it together. It took him a few days to assemble, which was fun for him, and when it was done, it ran perfectly. He still attaches lego guys to it and lets them ride. K'nex even gives you a website you can go on to make an entirely different ride with the same set. I give this 2 BIG THUMBS UP!!!k

I got a great deal on this through Amazon over the holidays and my son absolutely loves it. He is 8 and assembled the entire ride in one day without any help - sniff, sniff. It's the first major piece set he's not asked me to help with. That tells me the instructions are very intuitive. If you've got a serious K'Nex, Lego engineer on your hands, this set will be a welcome addition. Those without lots of building experience will definitely need help. All the little people that come with it are cool too. The one beef I have with K'Nex (and this has happened with several products) is that they need to include a few spare parts and improve the tracking mechanisms on the amusement park sets. On both this set and the serpent spiral coaster, the track hangs up even after lots of adjusting and futzing around. Not annoying enough to forgo the purchase.

First and foremost there were no instructions, this is not a big deal, but it should been mention in the product description by the supplier.

Pieces were all over the place inside the box...still not sure if there is a complete set.

I have searched everywhere for this for my grandson. I found some pieces missing but I am sure he will be able to find parts from other knex he has.

It was good fun to play with it. My son could figure out the construction of the Knex easily. ALthough a bit difficult for him but he managed and keeps making something different than what are given.

By Buzz Eard on November 23, 2010
Overall I (my son) like this toy. The parts quality of this toy is generally good. However, when you start building big projects like this ferris wheel, the end product becomes quite flimsy. Also, the two wheels end up having too much mass for the underpowered motor and connections too actually turn the wheels - very disappointing.

My son really enjoyed building the ferris wheel. If the kit came with instructions of more projects I would definitely rate it higher as generally building is the fun part.
