    This has got to be a childs wildest K'nex dream come true. 2,176 pieces of non stop, building fun! When I selected this item to enjoy with my grandsons I somehow missed the part that said, classroom set. LOL! So imagine my surprise when it came and I could barely lift the tote style container. It is heavy. When I opened it up I was in disbelief. My grandsons will be building till they graduate from college. I believe there are 28 different types of pieces. Some are quite large. I can lay my galaxy 3 on one of the circle pieces and it fits just inside the edges. It takes some time to build some of the structures. But it is well worth it. The instructions are in color and are detailed yet easy to understand. There is an elevator, well, scissors, ramps, hockey stick, balance, wheelbarrow and the list goes on. And no limit to what can be designed and created out of your own imagination. It comes with an instructional CD but I did not review it as I am a grandmother and not a teacher. However, this has got to be an awesome classroom addition. This product is sturdy, colorful, full of possibilities and just a fantastic toy. Each project has a picture list of pieces needed to assemble that structure so you can get them together before starting it. There is also a real picture of each project. My only negative comment would be that because there are so many pieces it would have been great if it had come in a container with trays to sort the pieces. It would save a lot of time assembling the pieces needed for each project. But then that would probably add to the cost. We love this set and recommend it highly.

    Valuable Educational Tool

    The KNEX Education Building Simple Machine Class Set is a valuable educational tool in any classroom. The 2,176 pieces were packaged nicely into several bags and stored in a sturdy plastic container for easy storage and organization. Six instructional manual books were included with easy to read instructions and clear visual pictures. We first made several different simple machines. The screwdriver and scissors were quite easy and looked great once completed. The kids liked using their imagination with these tools. We then moved on to the well and the elevator. These simple machines took more time and effort but were completed with no problems. These creations required strings that were already included. Having everything needed to create the simple machines is great. I can just open the container and begin building. The well and elevator parts moved with easy. We also tried putting small items in the well and elevator to simulate a real life situation. The kids thoroughly enjoyed creating and playing with them. Clean up was a breeze as well. We just placed all the parts in the container and found the perfect place for it. Now when we have the urge to use our creativity and imagination we can just reach for this toy and enjoy.

    I was not sure what to expect when I received these. But they have been so much fun and great tools to teach the kids too. They are simple to use and great tool for teaching kids simple machines. It came with seven booklets. The instructions are very easily read and understood by my 10 year old. We love legos very much. This Will not replace that for sure but definetley something special too. My son was very eager to build each machine and use it for it intended purpose. If you have a curious child always asking how the mechinics of things works this would be perfect gift for them. It keeps kids engaged and eager. to learn more. In this set you can build a balance. Which honestly not my favorite. You can also make a wheel barrow, hockey stick and scissors which honestly wasn't fun either. But to the fun stuff.....the next thing is an elevator. My son has always wanted to know how that works so this was very fun for him. The well was also fun for him too. There is also screw driver and steep ramp which was much like a slide. The best thing we made was the crank fan. The last thing was an egg beater. We are thinking there is so much more we can build. So we will have to break out our imaginations and I'm sure the sky's the limit!!!

    First off, the set is a rather large collection of pieces suitable for a classroom, and does in fact come with a teacher's guide c.d. and 10 or so sets of plans for a few basic machines, but my son, who is 13, said that he wished there were more simple machine blueprints. My son was skeptical at fist, because he does not like 'legos' very much, but really did enjoy this, once he started building; in fact, he went on to build several things that were not described in the provided plans. I've included photos of some of the things that he built. Over all, as a parent I was pleased with the creativity it sparked in him, as well as the opportunity for him to see and learn exactly how a gear worked.

    We got this set thinking it would be good for additional Science/STEAM lessons at home. I think the set is great, but it is much better suited for a class, scout troop, or if a family has a few kids in the same age range doing the lessons for homeschool. The booklets have nice pictures, but could use a little more written instructions so the kids can work more independently on the projects. All the pieces come in a very nice Sterilite 5 gallon storage bin, which was a pleasant surprise. We were expecting a flimsy bin or cardboard box we would have to replace shortly. There are over 2,100 K’nex pieces in the set, so there is enough for several groups of kids to work on a model in the books at the same time. There are 8 books and a CD guide for the teacher. The pieces come bundled in bags by part type, so if you are using this in a troop or classroom setting and wish to have the kids work in teams, you will need to sort out the pieces for them from the big bin. A class may want to have smaller bins or trays available when doing these projects to prevent the pieces going everywhere. The K’nex themselves have changed since I was a kid. Instead of the metal pieces I remember, they are now plastic. The plastic is brightly colored, and is probably a bit safer than the sharp metal edges of the older stuff we used as kids, especially if used in a classroom. But the plastic pieces seem about as strong as the plastic of Legos, so they will hold up well to repeated use, both as learning tools and just as building toys. Overall, I am happy with this set.
