    I received an exploring machines kit through our Science department at school that was just sitting in a cabinet and it was brand new. I teach 6th grade Math & Science and this kit is amazing. We will be studying Simple Machines in a few weeks and I took home the kit to check it out. I put together the hammer, screwdriver, archimedes screw, and am now working on the elevator. My niece, a 2nd grader loved it so much, she asked me to bring it back so she could make her own version of an elevator. I really like how well constructed and strong the pieces are and  when they are all connected together how life like the end products are and that they really work. It's very cool.  I know my students will really like to work on putting together these simple machines. I am just trying to figure out if there are enough pieces for  9 small groups to work on them. I need to get at least one more set, if not two. If I win the contest, I will be using it to buy another exploring machines set for my classroom.       I think it's definitely worth the money and anyone will learn from making the many items listed. Hours of strategic fun. Not for the faint of heart.

    I ordered this for my 6 year old nephew because his sister has a birthday in November and gets toys to keep her busy before Christmas, whereas he doesn’t – and he gets quite antsy (as all children do) before the Big Day. I thought it would be something to keep him busy and I was right! As soon as it arrived he was working on building – the set has many machines to build. He spent until bedtime building, came home from school and continued. He even decorated his Mom and Dad’s dresser with his new machines. As with all K’NEX there are a lot of pieces, but the sturdy plastic bin keeps everything in order and is movable from room to room. The set is designed for 10+years but my nephew has seemed to have no problems with building his machines. No assistance has been required and though I’m not sure what will happen when he finishes and there are no more machines to build, he has been excited, content to learn without knowing it and is having fun. I would recommend this for anyone who has a precocious child – for a Christmas gift or even better, something to keep them engaged, learning and busy while on Christmas break waiting impatiently for the Big Day. I know I am now the best Aunt on the Planet!

    Very fun. Knex is very fun for all ages. The building of all machines was a blast for the kids. They could build and build all day long. They just love these knex.

    I myself played with this product & my son! It has alot of pieces & I like that it's a learning experience! It has so many pieces & you can make things that are not listed! We made several different shapes of things & my son is a person that if he can't figure things out he gives up! That never happened & I was surprised! After I showed him how it worked he said ma I got this, so I said ok! Any child with learning disabilities should have this product!

    K'NEXeducation is a name that will go into the history books as a great training tool right along with the famous erector sets we had years ago when I was a child. THANK YOU, Walmart for handling such a great product. Our daughter is a Special needs teacher and has told us she feels she wants to try something like this product with some of her students to see if it will be useful in training them to stay involved with a project to the finish. I agreed with her and am waiting to see the results.
