This was a very enjoyable ride to build. However, like all K'nex products I have built, it suffers from a multitude of small parts which are difficult to hold, compounded by being made of a slippery plastic that compounds the problem. Another defect is in the illustrations, I often found then almost indecipherable but I plugged away and got through. Part of it is my fault, I am too old to retain full use of all my joints, I am partly color blind and have trouble discerning what part is called for but I still enjoyed building the models. And when I am done and turn them on, to see them work, then all my effort becomes worthwhile.

A Kid's Review on January 19, 2009
Hi, my name is Jorge. I'm 9 years old. The OCTOPUS WHIRL was awesome!!! Although it seems that it might be a little more challenging for 7 year-olds. I liked that when I was finished instead of just spinning regularly it spins on an angle. It rocks. That's why I recommend this for kids. It was the best one that I built so far. Right now I'm working on the one for 9 year-olds and up, and that's gonna be a challenge but fun!!!!!!!

This product was a lot of fun for the child once the parent finished putting it together. If your child is patient and enjoys building, this would be okay. If not, be prepared to build it yourself in order for the child to enjoy it. He had a lot of fun once it was built, but did not have the patience or skills to build it himself at 9 years old. This one depends a lot on the child.

This purchase was a smart choice, some of the parts are smaller than the usual size K-nex. My 8 year old grandson had no trouble following the directions. This is a good set for a first time K-nex.

A year after receiving this toy as a gift, I'm happy to say my 5-year-old son still chooses to bring this one out to build, where other toys are abandoned, broken, or discarded. He needs help to build it, but manages to make repairs on his own, and has asked for the other "thrill rides" in the set.

It requires a little construction savvy and patience, and has lots and LOTS of little parts. Our fingers are always worn by the time we're ready to turn it on. Good for kids and parents who are mechanically inclined -- frustrating for people who aren't. Did I mention LOTS of little parts? Yeah, get some baggies for storage.

I know some folks have said K'NEX is too hard for kids to put together, but IMO it is a project for a parent and a child. My husband and eight year old daugther have put two of these together working as a team and it was so much fun. My daughter has to use critical thinking skills and learns mechanical engineering techniques. This Octopus Whirl is number four in the list to do. I think these types of projects offer quality time for parents / children and really challenge their minds. We have three more that the team will be working on in the near future.

My 13 year-old-son put this together in a couple of hours and we think it's AWESOME!!! It works well and takes up very little space, which I like. He wasn't used to the smaller than usual pieces, but figured out how to put it together. We LOVE the motorized feature! Looks like the real thing in action! A younger child may need an adult's help and certainly should only pick it up by the base. We would highly recommend this set and have always been pleased with K'nex toys!!!
