K'NEX SawBlade Thrill Ride = building fun!

K'NEX building sets offer hours and hours of building fun! I really think it is a super product to spark the creativity and imagination in those building! This is such a great product for our kids, especially since our world thrives off of media entertainment. Not that media is bad, but it is good to have a product where kids can use their skills and be challenged! The K'NEX SawBlade Thrill Ride set presents a big challenge with 1,555 colorful K'NEX pieces, motorized, dual-spinning wheels and 8 K'NEXmen riders! Kids will get a great since of accomplishment once they finish building the Saw Blade Thrill ride measuring over 4 feet tall! The builder of this great amusement park ride will need to follow the color-coded instructions to build this step-by-step. The motor will be switched to on and the ride will burst to life. Two star-shaped wheels begin to quickly spin as the central arm rotates round-and-round to create a high octane twist on a traditional Ferris Wheel experience. I like that there is an option to build a second model with this kit. The directions can be found on the K'NEX website. Saw Blade is appropriate for ages 9 & up and requires 2 "AA" batteries. The K'NEX Saw Blade Thrill Ride can be purchased at Amazon for $59.99.
I really like that the K'NEX sets can be combined together to make even more creations! The K'NEX sets really expand the minds of young and old builders everywhere! I highly recommend the K'NEX for your families. The Saw Blade Thrill Ride would make a great gift for those on your Christmas list.

My son loves to build. They use these things in the gifted program at school. Last year, they built the Kinzua Bridge. It's an amazing creation.
