What does 3,447 K'NEX parts look like? Like this! This set is especially designed for classroom use, with enough pieces to build 60 simple machine models. The set is designed to include hands-on learning about gears, levers, pulleys, wheels and axles, inclined planes, wedge-and-screws, and more. For example, the guide on gears includes 13 projects, including spur gears, bicycle gears, crown gears, rack and pinion gears, worm gears, planetary gears, simple transmissions, car windows, lawnmowers, egg beaters, food mixers, axles and differentials, and clocks. Wow. Each project features (almost wordless) diagrams with images of what the finished project should look like, lists of the parts needed (no problems there!), and assembly diagrams to help guide the building process. The 3,447 piece set is designed to be enough for 15 students working simultaneously as teams. We really like building with K'NEX and we don't like running out of K'NEX pieces, so this is definitely the way to go for us. The set also includes a comprehensive teacher's guide aligned to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Standards, and comes with a strong storage tub with snap-on lid, which is really easy and convenient to store or bring out to play with. Our kids are having a great time with this seemingly limitless amount of pieces and the motor is one of their favorite parts, too.

The K'NEX Education: Simple Machines Deluxe Building Set is a LARGE set. It comes in a big tub with a snap on lid and weighs about 20 pounds. This is a kit for schools, home schools etc and not a toy kit for a single child. 3,480 pieces, including one 12 volt motor to build 60 fully-functioning models and lesson plans included on a CD that has the teachers' guides. Some of the simple machines that you can build include but are not limited to: WHEELS AND AXLES; screwdriver, ferris wheel, water wheel, windmill, wagon, carousel, GEARS; spur gears, bike gears, rack and pinion, transmission, car window, eggbeater, clock, LEVERS;see-saw, catapult, rowboat, hammer, lever mobile, INCLINED PLANES; roller coaster ramp, chisel, axe, drill, propeller, PULLEYS; pulley stand, fixed pulley, moveable pulley, combo pulley, elevator, crane. This large set also comes with directions and items for the Big Ball Factory which includes the K'NEX motor assembly. The guides are labeled ages 8+ for building but you can present these concepts of physics to much older ages as well. My set came missing a large bag of the yellow connecting rods which meant we could not do any of the projects. I called the number on the label on top of the bin and did NOT identify myself as a reviewer. I was met with a gracious customer service representative that took my name and address and sent out a replacement bag of rods without any difficulty. I was on the phone for only a few minutes. Definitely a good experience with them!

Wow, I cannot believe what a great set this is, you get so many pieces, I don't think there is anything you cannot build with this! I know that this is geared toward classroom learning, but we have some kids in my family that are home schooled so we used it for them. All I can say is that this is great in the class and at home, the kids just love it, they don't want to stop building, and all us parents love that they are learning some great skills, and teamwork too. One of the greatest things about this set is that you are not limited to the instructions and models they suggest, you get so many pieces the kids can build what ever they want and then some. It's awesome to see what the kids come up with as an individual or even as a group. My kids favorite so far is the Gears, they love putting them together,and to watch the wheels turn to see for themselves how things work. The way that it is packaged is great too, it comes in a nice sturdy tub with a lid that snap's on, so everything stores quite nice. That was really thoughtful on the part of K'NEX, and much appreciated by me. This is definitely an investment, but it is something that will last a long time, and the amount of uses you can get out of it will more than pay for it.

This is a really nice set. I love the fact that this a teaching gift! I love that it is educational and instructions are very detailed and descriptive. I found the teaching guide to be easy for me to relay the information back. Initially, my son was intimidated by the amount of pieces. It seemed a bit overwhelming as he was not used to this. Eventually became very involved. The only draw back was he seemed a little bored with this set. I dont feel like the frame of reference was there as much. He didn't know what the different machines were and was not captivated. It is still a great set, but I wouldn't invest in this as my first set. Or just make sure your kid(s) is interested in this type of item to build. The more interested that the child is in the item the easier the set will be. Having a frame of reference for the object is key to enjoying and learning about the concepts he/she is being taught.

I Bought this set a few weeks ago because my kids were getting bored of not having enough stuff to do with the K'nex stuff they already have. When they saw all the gears and motors and all the new stuff they started building right away. Before i knew it they had built two complete ball machines using the new stuff as well as the old stuff they had. Now the first toy they go for when they get home is the K'nex stuff. They are planning for some super build that they say will get them to the finals of the K'nexpert search again this year. Best thing i have ever bought.
