    The K'NEX Education: Amusement Park Experience Building Set has three containers (tubs) filled with 2264 pieces to build a Ferris Wheel, Roller Coaster, Carousel, Scrambler, or tower. The children can use their imaginations to make many other things also. The pieces are of many colors, which makes it easy to follow the explicit directions in the booklet. My 12 year old twin granddaughters came to visit for 6 days, so I thought this would be a great project for them, and keep them from getting bored. One of the girls wants to be an architect, so I thought she would really enjoy this set. When they opened it, they were so excited to see so many pieces. One of the girls immediately started putting the pieces in order, while the other one got out the directions, and started putting the roller coaster together. As they connected the pieces together, to form this huge roller coaster, it reminded me of the Erector Sets of long ago, except these pieces where made of plastic. There is even a motor included, and a car that goes around the track. They were having so much fun putting this together, that they didn't want to quit. It was dinner time, so I told them they had to stop for the night. A project that entertains 12 year old girls for hours must be good. The box says not for children under 3 years old. Personally, I would recommend this for children 6 and older. Some of the pieces are very small. My granddaughters said that the pieces were easy to put together, and that the directions were very easy to follow. I love toys that are educational, so that children have to use their brain, thought process, coordination, and imagination. and this building set is certainly all that and more. I would recommend this for your children, and grandchildren. It is even fun for adults.

    This is an amazing building set!!! It took my son, middle school aged, a little while to start building set the once he got started it was hard to pull him away! We have other K'nex, but this set in particular kept his attention because he loves amusement parks. He was building rides that he often goes on so it made him that much more excited. Ironically, he didn't realize that he was learning the concepts of math and physics. Because he likes the rides, it gave him a frame of reference and allowed the concepts to make sense in a real life experience. I think this set is actually good for a starter set!!! The instructions are great and informative! My elementary aged child even tried working on this. He couldn't read the instructions well but worked with my other son. I completely recommend this.

    This is an Educational set created for Teachers and students and I can see how this would be great for a school setting. However its just as user friendly for and individual child or group of children at home. This is my son’s second K’NEX set and we have no complaints its awesome. It comes with a CD for a Teachers instructions and it comes with a CD for general building instructions. Having the instructions on a CD is a great addition to having the instructions in the booklet that comes with the kit.This also is quite an extensive set I was very impressed. It comes with three storage trays for the over 2,000 K'NEX pieces which are very colorful an very easy to put together and take apart. With this K’NEX set your child can also make models that are battery powered, however the 4 AA batteries are not included as part of the set. My son spends hours building different incredible models and he loves his K’NEX sets. I love that this is such a creative toy that my family also has fun spending time together making models.I am so glad we got this set.

    This is an inspiring environmentally conscious product that is made in the USA with almost 100% recycled product, even including the cardboard box that it comes shipped in. You can check out the KNEX website for their factory processing so I won't go in to that here except to say that the company is very "green". This particular KNEX Education: Amusement Park Experience Building Set is made for actual classroom projects and would be very educational with hands on learning that would make it fun at the same time as learning skills in science, technology, engineering, math, design and architecture plus other fields could be employed. It even comes with a manual and teachers guide to involve the students. I feel it would be just as welcome in a home where the whole family could be involved and who knows, even the parents might learn a thing or two! You can build 13 different amusement rides and your imagination can take over to construct anything else you might think of. It comes with storage totes when not in use so every piece stays in one place. An awesome made in the USA product!

    We have found that building the different structures found in the K'NEX Education: Amusement Park Experience Building Set has been a fun and educational experience. I should note that this has set has not been utilized in a classroom setting, therefore making it difficult for me to speak to the supplemental classroom and teacher materials. Our biggest complaint is that this set came with several storage bins, but no dividers. While we’ve been able to manage this at home with fewer hands in it, I can see the organization of this set quickly becoming a mess to manage in a classroom setting. This set can serve as a great tool for teaching science and engineering concepts through the building of these structures and rides. Hands on learning takes place as children are building any of the 13 amusement park rides which include a roller coaster, carousel, scramble, boom ride, swing ride, pirate ship ride, inclined planes, half-pipes and circular loops for balls and cars. I also love to watch children building structures outside of the ones found in the guide to foster additional creativity. Overall, the K'NEX Education: Amusement Park Experience Building Set is a great option for enhancing your educational environment.
