Rated 5 out of 5 by wyatts1mommy We purchased this for our sons 5th birthday and he loves it. My husband had to put it together and it did take some time but after he set it up our son has been playing with it ever since. We have not had any trouble with the cars coming off the tracks and will be purchasing extra tracks!
Rated 2 out of 5 by luvthis Disappointed
We purchased this for our son who was turning 7. It said for ages 6 and older, but this is super hard for a child that young. My 12 yr old helped him put it together and he lost interest after about an hour. Once it was put together, it was really neat but the karts would not stay on the track...they go too fast for such a small track. I think the company is hoping that we will keep buying extra track and make a larger one and then the karts would be able to stay on without flying off and falling apart. Just wasn't what we had hoped for, esp for $50.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ravensfank christmas present for 10 yr old son he seems to really like it and put it together himself, so far so good.
Rated 4 out of 5 by SlugMaster2000 Cool toy, but difficult to assemble
More affordable than Legos! Very cool toy. My son loves it! But impossible for a 5 or 6 year old to assemble on their own. Even their father had a hard time getting the whole thing together. Once together though, it is more solid than Lego products are. I love that it came with Mario and Luigi and their cars. But it would have been cool if the angry brick dudes were mechanical. A great gift idea for any Mario lover!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cblvolps awesome product
Awesome product and awesome customer service & pricing,

Rated 4 out of 5 by ellie333 Very difficult to put together. ONce you got it together though it worked well. Son really enjoys it. Need to have room to keep it put together. Would not want to keep having to reconnect it.
Rated 2 out of 5 by AFMilSpouse Not what I was expecting
My son is OBSESSED with anything Mario bros so when I saw this I had to get it for him. I bought this set along with the Yoshi lava one. There are a few things I really dislike about these sets. One they take forever to put together and two the cars are WAY to fast for the small track. The cars go flying off the track and break apart without even completing one or two laps. And the "bad guys" pieces (stomp) are constantly breaking when my son tries to use them to stop the carts. Overall I think this will just be more of a decoration or use it without batteries.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Flames Easy to build and super fast cars!
My brother got the set for being a k'nex semi-finalist. I found it easy to build and fun to mash down on the cars with the mashers. The cars are super fast and fun to race!
Rated 4 out of 5 by SoccerMom2214 Fun but requires maintenance
Purchased for my six and eight year old boys who love Mario and Luigi. Great idea to be able to have a race with your favorite characters...however design could have been better. The overall track is pretty flimsy and some of the pieces seem to come apart easily. However, when the track stays intact the boys seem to really enjoy it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rabbit127 Have long enjoyed K-Nex quality .
Shipped very fast, price and availability excellent.
Rated 2 out of 5 by gogomargaux Too difficult for 6/7 year old
My husband had to put this together for my 6 1/2 year old son because it was far too difficult for him to do. It probably took my husband an hour or more to get it all together and then the cars don't even stay on the track, they go too fast. Wish I would have stuck with Legos instead of this pricey item that takes up far too much floor space. Looks cool but it's just not worth the money.
Rated 5 out of 5 by stamps4fun Awesome Buy
My 6 year old wanted this and we started looking all over and everywhere we looked it was around fifty dollars, until we came to Walmart.com and found it for alot less. Great buy, but the cars are a little fast at first with fresh batteries, once played a couple of times it was a little better, I am gonna add some extra track to give the cars more room to race. All in All great
Rated 3 out of 5 by kjmcgaha The product was average. I was a little surprised to see rubberbands as connectors. I thought this cost way too much to see rubberbands as connectors. The K'Nex are a little flimsy and they fall apart quite often. I would NOT buy the rest of the set.
