    My grandson just turned 13 and he just loved this for his birthday. The first thing he built is a ferris wheel. Much better than TV or electronic toys.

    I bought 20 buckets for an engineering event hosting about 100 middle school girls, thinking that 521 pieces per box would be more than enough. But, when I received the boxes, I realized that there were two sizes of K'NEX: regular and miniature. The regular size is not compatible with the miniature, so I have no idea why this wasn't specifically stated on the box or in the product description. It didn't even seem like there were 521 pieces, though there might have been. I ended up returning all but the ones I didn't open.

    K'nex "Value" Tub includes too many tiny pieces

    The tub boasts being a value for 521 pieces. This is in fact true, but most of the pieces are tiny replicas of the regular k'nex pieces. I assumed they would all be the normal size pieces and found nothing listed that said it includes the smaller pieces. It is hard to describe, let's say you were going to build a car with k'nex. If you used the small pieces, the car would be the size of a matchbox car.

    • A. No. They are very different from Lego's. They require more thinking on how they go together.

    • A. There are Bricks in this set that fit perfectly with regular Legos. These bricks have barely rounded corners that are NOT Sharp but are Exactly the same dimensions as Legos! The Smaller Sized pieces can also be built into Lego projects using the bricks and brick interface pins included in this set! The larger sized bits are harder to build in with Lego Projects ....

    • A. These are different than Legos..my child prefers these sets to Legos, so we don't own any Legos...I do not see how they would work together, so I would think it is most likely not compatible with Legos.

    • A. Normally they don't work with Legos, but these have some "lego" looking pieces to work with the K'nex. I have found K'nex to be a wonderful companion to Legos. Our boxes are right next to each other on the shelf.

    • A. Most of the pieces are shaped like sticks or are wheel-shaped or partial wheel-shaped pieces that connect to the sticks. There are a few Lego-style pieces that do attach to Lego-brand pieces, but I don't see how the sticks themselves could attach to Legos on their own.

    • A. No they are not. They work similar to legos; however you can not connect them to legos. They are more flexible and allow more creativity then legos.

    • A. No. You want the larger "Ferris Wheel" product box. That Ferris Wheel uses 2 AA Batteries in its reversible motor unit and stands a couple of feet tall - takes a couple of hours to build, Too! Mine is on display in the bedroom ... and I let it spin every now and then! But for a non-motorized mini Ferris Wheel: this one is NOT Bad!
