We also received the Typhoon Frenzy Roller Coaster Building Set. This is for ages nine and up and my son was so excited to try it out. We loved it, but I have to be honest. This one is a little frustrating for kids to complete independently. My son is eleven and he couldn't do it on his own. I tried to help, but even I lost my patience. The tiny pieces are hard to match up and if even one is out of place, it doesn't work at all. Finally, my husband had to get it together for us and it took a few days. Once it was assembled, all my kids LOVED playing with it though and it was definitely worth the extra effort. It stands almost three feet tall. It runs like a real roller coaster, using mechanical pullies that drag the car up the ramp before releasing it down on its thrilling ride. Its amazing watching the cars loop around the tracks. Its definitely a great toy. Just be prepared to have to lend a hand if you get this one for your kids unless they are a little older or have more patience than mine do. Also be sure to clear a large flat service, because it takes up a lot of space.

After spending almost a whole day setting it up with my son, the green tracks are made to fit in opposite direction than they're supposed to be, so, parts were lose and did not fit tightly. Putting the parts together are sometimes straining on fingers. I had some pain on the tips of my fingers from putting so many parts together. To top it off, some essential parts to hold the tracks in place were missing while extra parts were given for no use. Instructions were horrible. Some pictures were misleading. Finally, once it's put together, that's it!!! No creativity after that. Don't waste your time or money on this. Legos are still the best in terms of quality, creativity, durability and ease of use.

      Comments about K'NEX Typhoon Frenzy Roller Coaster Building Set:

      Knex always makes a good rollercoaster product. We have several. Quality parts. Good instructions. My 6 year old built this with Dad's help and it has taken up a seemingly permanent home in the livingroom since Christmas day. As long as we don't lose the pieces, it should make for good fun for a long time. Obviously the mini Knex aren't as strong as the bigger ones, but assuming you don't try to sit on the coaster, it is plenty durable and runs smoothly.

        Got this for my 7 year old for Christmas who is a Lego fanatic. We couldn't afford any motorized Lego sets, but he is really into science and building so we wanted something like it. This is perfect! He learned a little about physics and structure supporting for buildings, as well as having a blast! We did have to help him, because its a little complex but it was a great family project!

                  This is perfect for my 8 year old son. He loves building things and spends hours putting it together. Came home as a gift and was putting it together the minute we walked in the door. His 5 yr old sister loves to help, too. Overall a great gift, and I look forward to buying more in the future!

                        My son opened this up and started building immediately! He loves these kinds of toys! For some people it is hard to keep track of the little pieces, but keeping it organized with baggies or totes makes it so you won't find yourself stepping on any little pieces on your way to the bathroom in the middle of the night! ;) this is not his first nor will it be his last.. I might have a lil engineer on my hands!
