5grampa purchaseMar 28, 2010
By J. wolf "big doc"
this is the greatest grampa/grandaughter (4) afternoon science project ever. great sorting and visual/motor stuff, wonderful opportunity for grampa to butt out of the problem solving and only come in as a last resort. the disassembly process encourages good work habits, the assembly process rewards planning...just an absolutely cool experience, as long as grandma is available to keep the two year old out of the mix

2Showcase model does not work as pictured.Oct 18, 2011
By Tell_It
The model that is showcased on the front of this set does not work as designed. The yellow steering wheel does not turn the car's axle; it just spins around on the blue rod (ie "steering column"). In the picture, the steering wheel looks as though it is attached firmly to the orange clip. Not. You can, of course, take the steering wheel off and just spin the blue rod itself and this _will_ turn the wheels. However, the name of this model is "Steering Wheel"(!!!) and it is the large model pictured on the front of the box! (You'd think it would work! My son is very disappointed because this car is the reason that I bought this kit.

I also bought this kit because we had the K'Nex Introduction to Simple Machines: Gears kit last spring. Every model in this kit worked and it was challenging and educational. "Gears" is a good buy, but "Wheels" belongs in the garbage.

This is the "Gears" kit:

5Food for the growing mindFeb 24, 2014
By John Henry
These 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.

I bought this kit as a gift for a six year old with a bent for tinkering; it's the second kit he's gotten and he enjoys them immensely.

4Good intro to simple physics conceptsAug 04, 2013
By Linus Maiden
My 9 and 10 year old boys enjoyed putting together some of the various machines in this set. I was able to use this as a supplement to our homeschool unit on simple machines. It helped the kids to be able to visualize the concepts.
