    This is a very large set. It contains 1315 pieces, and arrived in two sturdy 12" x 17" x 5" gray plastic tubs with clear see-through lids. The lids fit tightly. I was sent two other K'Nex sets, for free, through the Spark Reviewer Program. All three sets are wonderfully made. I have not stumbled across a single poorly made piece. Unlike a lot of other building sets made by other brands, this set (and the two other K'Nex sets that I received to review) are not giant packages that are only 10%-30% full of pieces and 70%-90% empty space and packaging. The tub is appropriately sized for it's contents, so there is no disappointment for the child who opens these sets. There are two booklets included with this set. Each book contains detailed illustrated instructions that are printed in color. There are diagrams for 80 different projects! The only thing not included in this set is the AA batteries that you will need for the battery operated motor. I feel that educational toys at home are an absolute must. My son is three and a half years old. He is a bit younger than the recommended age of the product, but he still loves it, and I love that I get to spend time building with him. I also want to instill in him, as early as possible, that learning can be fun. The set is intended for grade K-8 (ages 5+). This set is not recommended for children under three, so I do not allow my son to play with this set by himself yet, but I love helping him with his little building projects. My son is still getting use to this set and has yet to take a strong interest in building the designs, but he likes to play with the individual pieces and build tiny little cars. We have made little race tracks and ramps, and we are currently working on a maze for his robotic bugs to travel through!

    The best thing about K'Nex Education: K - 8 Construction Building Set is that it has a ton of parts, and the included plasctic containers for storage are very durable. The range of use for this set is Kindergarten to junior high, but my kindergarten daughter had a tough time following the complex directions, and sometimes she found making connectors fit together a challenge. My 7 year old son gave up completely, as he found that creating a model required more skill and time than he could muster. My husband also had a tough time completing models based on the directions handbook, and he even had to use brute force to try to make the connectors fit together. Needless to say, the complex system of interlocking bricks that begins with an 'L' is much more popular in our family. I will keep this building set for rainy days and perhaps when my son is older he will revisit them. As the set's name implies, an educational setting might be a better fit than casual play time fun. Students might be able to help one another under the guidance of a teacher whose purpose is to encourage team work and engineering skills. In the picture, my husband shows his handiwork, a horse. He had a tough time keeping and making the pieces fit together. It took him about twenty minutes to complete it to that point, but the directions were for a two-horse carriage. Unfortunately, the carriage was not completed.

    Call me crazy, but I think play time can be educational too. I picked up this set to have "projects" to work on with the grand kids. I also got the huge roller coaster set, but that will have to wait when they come to visit for a week. This one has a lot of small projects that are divided up by age groups (grades). These individual builds are perfectly matched to kids up to 8th grade. There are lessons included so teachers can use them in the class room. You can use those same projects and teach the same skills at home. The best part is that by reading the included lesson plans, you can teach a skill or concept while still making it just a fun building project. I will also use some of the more advanced projects with my Boy Scout troop. These will make great team building exercises when we are stuck indoors during the winter. Better still, I will use the older Scouts as instructors giving them the lesson plans and letting them present and lead the projects. Fun with a purpose? This is it. And after you get done with the myriad of included designs and projects, there is nothing to stop you from inventing your own machines. This is well worth the price. Heck, the lesson plans alone are worth the price.

    I purchased this product a few weeks ago and it is proving to be of great value.  It comes with enough parts for me to do large group instruction and I can use it as an enrichment tool in a stand alone fashion.  I teach both STEM and 6th grade mathematics, and at this point in time I can see how this KNEX building set will help me meet a large variety of standards.   I have always been a fan of KNEX and have used them in my classroom for over 15 years now.  This is one of many KNEX kits I am glad I have purchased for my classroom, and KNEX continues to help me motivate, excite, and captivate my students.  I highly recommend this product whether you are just starting your classroom supply of KNEX or building on to it.

    My son was first introduced to the K'NEX products as a birthday gift a few years ago from a co-worker and he couldn't wait to get his hands on it. Besides the fact that I personally chose K'NEX Education: K-8 Construction Building Set for my son he's suddenly into science as I was and still am. He's part of his schools Robotics team where they learn how to build robots out of Legos. I felt as if this is a good start to the building process because he's curious to learn the foundations of buildings, construction and transportation. This is a good sized set, which comes in two gray K'Nex boxes for storage. Assisted storage is awesome!!! It's a nice amount of K'Nex for use in a science classroom setting as part of a lesson. With the new and improved STEM mathematics I can see how this K'NEX Education: K-8 Construction Building Set will help meet a large variety of standards for K-8 graders. KNEX continues to help me motivate, excite, and captivate my sons interest in science and math. My 8 year old and his friends LOVE building with K'Nex! I think they are much more appropriate for an upper elementary classroom because K'Nex offers more opportunities for constructions that MOVE in a different way. I highly recommend K'NEX Education: K-8 Construction Building Set whether you are just starting your own supply of KNEX or building on to it.

    The K'NEX Education K-8 Construction Set contains 1315 colored construction shapes, including a battery pack that requires two AA batteries (not included), a MicroPower wind up motor, and two instruction books in two plastic storage bins. The pieces are sturdy, well made and larger than expected. There are useful guides on the back page of each instruction book that list the pieces, their color, and the number of each that are included. Being a senior citizen, I had no prior experience with K'NEX products and found the instructions and actual assembly more frustrating than fun. I expected the kit to make one or two different models, and hoped to increase my manual dexterity and keep my mind sharp with this new challenge. There are, in fact, 50 models in Book 1 and 35 models in Book 2. I am certain that a more experienced builder would be elated with the possibilities, and this kit would provide hours of adventure and fun for an entire family. As for me, I wish the books were arranged in order of easiest to most difficult, perhaps based on number of parts. I tried to find the easiest project to start. It was the picture frame on page 3, requiring only 3 steps. The picture for step 1 showed the fully completed outer frame, step 2 showed the completed back frame, and step 3 showed the completed back support. It took a rather long time for me to find the correct pieces and assemble them as pictured, although the color coding definitely helped. With some patience, practice and familiarity with the parts, I expect to become more proficient, and eventually tackle additional models.
