    • 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. 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!

    The Great K'NEX Race

    Customer review by dona14

    As a fourth grade teacher, I was looking for a creative way to teach a science unit on force, motion and energy. I introduced the unit by inviting students to work in engineering groups to design a vehicle that meet certain size criteria, would travel travel farther and faster than other models. My students were so engaged in the learning process, enjoying the design process and testing portion of their tasks, that they were eager to learn and never wanted to stop to move onto the next subject. The day of the actual race there was so much excitement and competition in the air that to an observer would think they were playing during school. In actuality, my students gained greater scientific insight than if I had used a more traditional instructional method. They shared their learning using the language of engineers and scientists and scored an average of 96% on the county test. I used the K'NEX 521 piece construction kits which allowed students to be creative will learning. Great product!!

    I bought a set of K'Nex a couple of years ago at Yard Sale to see if my grandchildren would enjoy them. I have 17 grandchildren, 16 under the age of 13. Anytime they are at my home the K'nex are the first thing they get out. My five year old grandson has called me and asked "Nana, can I come over and play with your K'nex?". I now have several different sets and some of my grand-children have asked for K'nex for Christmas. In March of 2013 we celebrated my sweet Mother-in-laws 90th Birthday. I knew there would be around 30 great-grandchildren there under the age of 12, so I brought my K'nex. They loved them. Kept them entertained for several hours. I would highly recommend these for everyone with children and especially for Grandparents.

    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.

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    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.

    I bought this for my 8 year old grandson. The pieces were very very small and we had a very difficult time assembling any thing. He became frustrated and said he wanted to do something else. After he left, I put the kit in front of me and built the reverse trike. It took about 3 times as long as I had anticipated.

    My husband needed someone of the pieces in this kit to teach a chemistry lesson and allow his students to have a hands on approach. We figured with 521 pieces there would be plenty to go around. There were barely any of the pieces that he needed (yes we understand its an assortment and there is no guarantee of the pieces that will be in there). Also when taken out of the bags the pieces barely even covered the bottom of the container. With a bin this size you would expect it to be at least half full. What a joke! Do not waste your money!
