    This building set is so cool. The pieces are color-coded by size and function. It also has rods that bend. My son quickly built two different bridges using the instructions, then he free-styled a boat to go under the second bridge with the extra parts. He was so engrossed he didn't want to stop to eat dinner. Any set that does that and teaches spatial skills deserves five stars. This set also comes with a teacher's guide that is great for home schoolers. It is flexible enough to be a unit study or just one or two activities that interest your child. The only thing I didn't like about the guide was that the children illustrated in the lessons looked in about third or fourth grade while the material presented seemed on a seventh or eighth grade level. I would recommend this set to any parent who has a child that is proficient with LEGOs and enjoys building/constructing things, and is 9 years or older (due to the small intricate parts). It is definitely the next step up. There are instructions, but each step includes several smaller steps together. This set probably should not be the first K'NEX set you buy, but it is a great addition to a K'NEX collection.

    I've been using these bridge sets for 7 years in my STEM(Middle School) lab. Students build several samples using instructions then design and build their own bridges. The kids love it!

    I used these kits in my STEM class as pre-work for the students to build balsa bridges, modeled after the International Bridge Building competition. After spending a week building all the bridges in the kit, the kids built better bridges than the classes the year before. There are great review questions with each bridge, and the CD that comes with each one are very helpful too.

    I purchased this intro to bridge kit and two tubs of assorted parts. The bridges were an instant hit with the students and helped them to understand the ideas of design and function. The plans were pretty easy to follow. I used the different models as a pre-task so that students would then be able to design a truss bridge from straws. I have grades 2 and 3 and at first thought it would be difficult for them. They did great! there was a little challenge, but as an educator I wanted some challenge for them. I have a harder time manipulating the pieces than they do. I highly recommend K'Nex and encourage children to explore three dimensional building.

    I've bought this set for my daughters (5y and 8y) and they loved it. You can build about a dozen different bridges which helps you understand a lot about the different types of bridges and their usage. You can associate them with real structures and learn a bit about the mechanics behind the bridges, what makes them strong, what are their weak points, etc. The set itself is very good quality, nothing has broken so far.
