This is a great toy for 8yr olds and up. I bought this as a birthday gift for my great- nephew who chose it. We are still in the process of connecting the pieces. It gives them
a chance to look at the blueprint / instructions and choose the pieces that fit. It makes
them think and it takes time. Nice gift to buy ,causes one to spend time with the child,
great for building relationships.

This was a gift for a boy and he did not seem to like it.

The boy opened it and played with it for maybe 5 minutes before he lost interest. Although everything with the product seems to be well.

I bought it because an older teenage brother went shopping with me and remembered how many hours he had enjoyed this same set when he was the age of his younger brothers...9 and 7. So we bought and they were indeed thrilled and started to play with it immediately

Comments about K'NEX Hornet Swarm Roller Coaster 617 Pieces Building Set:

Fun to build if you have a little time and patience... well your child has patience. Works great and is pretty steady once put together. Roller coaster car works well. 5 year old loves it and was the one thing he had to have for his birthday even though box says 9+, he had little issue helping assemble

This was fun for both my son and myself. We both had fun setting it up together and running it. A combination of an electric train set and a roller coaster.

      Comments about K'NEX Hornet Swarm Roller Coaster 617 Pieces Building Set:

      Purchased this as a gift and the recipient was very excited to open this present up on his birthday. He spends hours constructing the roller coaster in a variety of ways and loves spending time with this very fun product with all his friends. K'NEX is very well worth the investment. I highly recommend their products to all kids and adults who love to use their imagination in a kinetic way.
