K'NEX brings your favorite Nintendo game to life. Challenge your imagination as you create countless adventures building this set and watch Mario and Toad race through the complete, multi-level Mario Circuit Track in their super-fast motorized Wild Wing and Standard Karts. Mario and Toad zoom down and around the huge five-foot-wide course, through twists, turns, and jumps -- but they better be careful, because there are lots of moving obstacles, ready to knock those karts right off the track. Push levers to send the gaping jaws of the Piranha Plant reaching down, the growling Chain Chomp chomping across, or the mischievous Goombas waddling through, just like in the game, and watch as Mario and Toad try to speed past these obstacles to avoid getting hit for a chance at a victory.

This building set includes a whopping 665 pieces -- all you will need, along with step-by-step instructions, to construct your very own scene straight out of Mario Kart Wii.

I put it together as the instructions state but I do think it would be great for kids to make up their own tracks too. If you already have K'Nex sets then these will work together. The cars go around quite fast and the track hold together well, I was afraid it may fall apart but it doesn't. The only problem if you can call it that the cars get stuck sometimes under the swinging traps.
I made a short video clip so you can see it in action after waiting 2 hrs for it to upload it told me it was too large.So you get a really fast look and not all the details I had pointed out. I had to put my ironing board by the table as it was too big for the table and I was not up to doing all that work sitting on the floor. There are so very many tiny pieces so beware of small children and pets. One of the wheels fell on the floor and my dog got it, he could have choked had I not seen it right away.
Overall this is a lot of fun. I have always enjoyed putting things together, I will admit at 56 yrs old it was a challenge at times. You will need 4 AAA batteries that are not included. My advice start early in the day to put this together.Read more ›
The track itself is neat. It comes with two cars and the means to build Mario and Toad for said cars. They are battery powered, and zip along pretty quickly along the track. The cars also zip on wood floors for added fun while the track is being tediously assembled.
Our main issue came with keeping the track assembled. The pieces just don't go together as well as traditional legos or racing track, at least with our kit. Every time my son would move the sliding piranha, that section of track would come detached. We'd get it back together and the little obstacle section would fall apart. It's good for about two laps around the track before some adjustments are needed. My son gets a little frustrated, but still says the track is a lot of fun.
Overall, it's a neat set-up. It has some twists and turns, the Mario characters and two zippy little cars. Building takes hours, but again, it's a nice project to work on together. Aside from the instability issues, I'd recommend it.
Consider my review in light of your own child's interests and play styles and take it for what it's worth to you. My son tends to like hands-on, interactive, social play activities so this just doesn't really fit the bill for him and he has barely used it since the first day he got it. This will be one of those things he pulls out once every blue moon for a short spell and back in the box it goes. Your child may love it, but for us it's only "okay".
One last thing - the completed set is pretty big, measuring about 4' x 5 1/2'. Keep this in mind as you consider how practical it might be for you & your child.
