This Set is a Blast!,
= Durability: = Fun: = Educational:
This review is from: Nintendo Bowser's Castle: Mario and Luigi at the Starting Line Building Set (Toy)Gave this to my 6 year old son for his birthday. When I opened the box and looked at the plastic bag of jumbled parts and the directions, a wave of dread swept over me. Unlike Legos, K'nex are not separated into bags by component piece. You get 2 large plastic bags with everything thrown in. That being said, do not let that dissuade you from buying this fun toy. If your child loves Mario, he/she will love this.
It did take us the better part of an hour to put together. The assembly is too difficult for a child. There are a lot of details. But it was worth every minute of trouble. This set is a blast! The motorized battery operated cars really fly. I was impressed with how fast they go. Sometimes, it's frustrating how parts of the cars will come undone. They're easily repaired with help from a nearby older sibling.
Don't buy this as a construction project for the little ones. Buy this for the super fast racing and laughs for your Mario Kart fans.
