"My 10 year old has suddenly discovered building. He loves this toy - My son just received this toy for his birthday. Up to recently, he has not been much of a builder or that into models. This has suddenly changed. (I should have known something was up when he kept wanting to play the game "Mousetrap" over and over...). He's kind of a late bloomer in many areas. But when he takes off with something, it's kind of fast. Anyway, at age 10, he's able to put this together on his own. He did so without any assistance and was quite pleased with his accomplishment. The fact that it's motorized is wonderful. My son has also put other action figures (not K'NEX or Lego) into the ferris wheel seats. Amazingly, it still balances well and continues to turn, without dropping any of his small figures. I was surprised when other reviewers talked about there being no extra parts. He had several left over. (But I must admit in the few things my son has put together, he always seems to have several parts left over. It doesn't seem to affect how anything looks or works. At least so far... :) This is our first K'NEX toy, and we'll be getting more. I think the K'NEX Box (or whatever it's called) where you can build multiple things looks good. My son typically has trouble focusing on any kind of work for more than a few minutes, and has an even harder time starting things (homework, chores, etc.). Although this requires lots of persistence and problem solving, it's not work to him. I like that he's able maintain his focus for so long. This is an unusual and welcome development. For those with younger kids who found this too challenging, put it away for awhile. Take it out in a year or so, and begin work on it yourself. Your kid may come around and want to help with it. I know for working parents this is asking a lot. (After all, I got lucky when my son received this at an age when he could do it on his own. No way he could have done this at age 7 or even 8). But your kid will love tackling something with you."

"K'nex Ferris Wheel - My 10 year-old daughter had a blast putting this toy together. I only had to help her when she couldn't snap a really tough one together. Unfortunately, when she put the largest wheel together it is crooked and doesn't spin without hitting the bottom supports. It seems like the base should be more sturdy or lifted to have the wheel spin. I need to contact Knex to find a solution. We have only assembled on of the two designs."

"Perfect for my 10 year old - We have lots of experience with building kits like this so putting this one together was pretty easy for my 10 year old daughter. (with a little help from dad) It's big and colorful and the motor works great to turn it. We have it on a shelf in our family room and it looks cute. The only drawback to kits like this is once you build it the fun is over. Lego kits offer a lot more diveristy in what you can build aside from the original plan. If you like to build things and then display them, this would be good for you...if you like to build things, tear them apart and build other things then this might not be what you're looking for."

"Construction set. - I bought this toy for my 7 year old daughter and she loved putting it together. It was to hard for her to do by herself but with help from her dad she was able to do it. She loved seeing it operate after it was all together. The toy is well worth its price if someone is willing to help through the whole building process."

"A great father / daugther project - I know some folks have said K'NEX is too hard for kids to put together, but IMO it is a project for a parent and a child. My husband and eight year old daugther have put two of these together working as a team and it was so much fun. My daughter has to use critical thinking skills and learns mechanical engineering techniques. This Ferris wheel was a fun project and is together and on display on my daughter's dresser. Her grandmother saw it and was so impressed. I think these types of projects offer quality time for parents / children and really challenge their minds. We have three more that the team will be working on in the near future."

"PRETTY COOL TOY, DIFFICULT FOR SMALL KIDS TO BUILD - My son received the K'Nex Ferris wheel for Christmas and he really likes it. However this would very very difficult for a younger child to build. The kit contains contains 478 pieces and takes at least an hour to build. Once completed it stands 1 1/2 foot tall. If moves in forward or reverse and little lego men can snap into the seats to take a ride. There are also several amusement park ride sets similar to this set.

"Fun... - We got this for the kids for Christmas & we really like it. Recommended age is 7 & up but my daughter is 7 1/2 & it was still too difficult for her to put together. Some of the pieces were a bit hard to snap together for children. I didn't mind because I enjoy putting stuff together. The kids really enjoy putting their little Lego men in it & watching them go for a ride. The only negative things I have to say are that there are no extra pieces so if you lose just 1 piece or it breaks (some of the pieces really bend to make the outer circle) then it's going to mess up the whole Ferris Wheel. I think it would also be great if you could build more than just one thing. It doesn't have to be anything big but it would be nice to be able to take the Ferris Wheel apart & make something else with the pieces that you have in this set. Overall though we really enjoy this set & would recommend it if you were to get it at a good price."

4 Stars - star ratingstar ratingstar ratingstar ratingno star rating by Eagle Vision, Southeastern United States on 2008-11-11
"Wonderful toy for a child to construct - The Ferris Wheel is an very nice toy for your child to construct, alone or with a little bit of your assistance. It is educational in the perspective that your child understands how to follow directions on his or her own and construct what appears to be a quite complicated moving display. The durability is average for a toy of this genre. Caution should be made in houses where there are very young siblings since there is a danger of swallowing these pieces. The company must have some excellent quality control to put the exact number of pieces in the box. Just one piece missing keeps the structure unstable and missing a wheel could be the difference between functioning and not. I would recommend that the company include some additional pieces. The electrical component that powers the structure is somewhat easy to operate. The replacement of the battery is somewhat precarious given the screw operated battery compartment and the angle it sits in the structure. Construction time is about 45 minutes to an hour and a half. This toy is worthy of consideration."

"Fun set if you don't loose pieces! Too spendy for just one 'build' - We are a family of Knex fans so this set was a natural addition. It was a blast to put together & it runs nicely. We also bought the dropnswing set that goes with it but one of the little pieces broke & we lost another & so that set is useless. Pros: Fun build, excellent instructions, neat design Cons: Loose a piece you are up a creek, a lot of the pieces aren't standard size (easy to loose!), Expensive for a single creation when you can get a bucket of Knex & a multiple design book for the same price! We paid half price for ours so I am not terribly disappointed but the regular price is ridiculous. Get it on sale or don't bother with these sets."
